Samsung is preparing to launch a revolutionary curved OLED screen device, codenamed “Youm” this October. This news comes after Samsung announcing the 5.5-inch Galaxy Note 3 model with curved display.
According to The Inquirer, DJ Lee, head of strategic marketing for Samsung Mobile spilled word of the announcement to Reuters, saying, “We plan to introduce a smartphone with a curved display in South Korea in October.”
The “Youm” device is rumored to feature a 5.5 inch display and given its curved surface, the size in 2D could appear compact and closer to a 5-inch displays. Since Samsung is looking to score big on the aesthetics front by releasing a cutting-edge display, maybe it could even be enough to change user perspective away from the iPhone 5S and HTC One. The manufacturing of the curved OLED panel for the device has solely been done by Samsung, and even demonstrated its prototypes at this year’s International CES.
In the meantime, the Galaxy S5 development codenamed Project Design 3.0 is still in progress.
