Samsung is adding two more devices to its successful line of Galaxy smartphones next month, one of which has a three-sided display screen. This will help the South Korean manufacturer to compete with the recently released Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, which saw tremendous sales at the end of last year.
Both of the new Galaxy smartphones will feature all-metal bodies, 5.1 inch screens and the most advanced Samsung processing chips to date. Official details have yet to be released about the phones specs, but one version is scheduled to be unveiled at the Mobile World Congress in Spain.
These devices were developed under the codename “Project Zero,” and their metal frames are supplied by BYD Electronic International. The three-sided display version will feature a screen that wraps around the left and right side of the phone, as well as the front, standard display. There are no pictures out yet for the phone, but it has been structurally fortified to reduce the chances of chipping or breaking the three display screens.
This is not Samsung’s first attempt at creative display screens. The company unveiled the new Galaxy Note Edge last year with a screen that stretched over the right side, giving users a chance to view menu bars and read news from a different angle.
