    I suppose that a curved display would look like . . . For Samsung Galaxy Note Edge N9150 LCD Screen and Digitizer Assembly Black | eBay
    You are comparing with the NOTE Edge (it has a much larger edge). Look at the Samsung S6 Edge. Unless you disagree that the S6 Edge has a curved display?

    To me it does not look curved... And this would not be a flaw anyways, if Chen would have not said that it's a curved slider, we're gonna see in November....

    But until now curved screen edges are nothing but a gimmick...

    And with the slider having only curved glass to the edge of the device it just increases the potential damage to the screen glas if it hits the ground...

    So this curved "screen"/glass is nothing but a fail fail situation

    But surely they would not utilise curved glass without a curved screen, for this very reason.... it would be a significant design flaw surely and therefore highly unlikely?

    I'm really confused about people asking this question.... have they not seen the leaked images?? The screen is curved at the edges, the left and right side.

    It just shows curved glass doesn't mean it functions the same as the edge

    The slightly greenish layer on the left image is the screen, not glass.

    So, if indeed it's curved, what functionality does that give me? Any? Will I see cool icons on the edge? Will I be able touch the edge, and something different will happen?

    Maybe it will do the same sorts of things the S6 Edge does: Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge: What can the curved screen actually do?

    Well, initially it will be flat. But since it's a dual boot device at first boot you will also be able to boot into curved screen BB10 mode!

    For those who say curved screens are a gimmicks, well go to any mobile store and compare the S6 with the S6 edge and see the difference in the screen itself, there is a big difference, the icons seem like they are floating above the screen compared to the normal S6

    I actually think it has a lot of potential for productivity. Like notifications displayed on the edge, tap it to switch to that app, etc.

    The covering glass appears to be curved while the display may be flat.

    just no... that would be terrible, if the glass was curved but the screen not, then there would have to be a gap between glass and OLED panel, wich would be just plain terrible.

    The screen is exactly like the S6 edge. It's curved in the edges, just not much

    Yeah, but the way he said that he could just mean the glass is curved.

    he could but he wasn't. Because as I said it would be just plain terrible. for that to happen, the OLED panel would have to distance itself from the glass to avoid the edge bending, resulting in a gap between screen and glass last seen 10 years ago, wich in the video and pictures leaked you can see that kind of gap doesn't exist.

    I believe that rounded edges will make it easy for us to grip increasingly wide devices with large-sized displays.
