Samsung bendable display smartphone patentAccording to a report in Bloomberg, Samsung is working on a Galaxy series smartphone with three-sided bended display.  The phone reportedly uses an upgraded version of Samsung’s Youm technology, which is also used in Galaxy Round.

The news comes at a time when a patent application filed by Samsung explaining the same smartphone has appeared on USPTO website. The patent application was originally filed in May this year and published on the website yesterday.

This application talks about a smartphone with bended/ wrapped around display on the three sides of the phone and its use-cases. You can see many of these use-cases in the images embedded in this post.
