Following the publication of a patent filed by Samsung for a quad-curved display, Concept Creator and LetsGoDigital have teamed up to imagine what such a smartphone could look like. Featuring the rear-facing cameras from the Galaxy S20 Ultra, the design resembles a P40 Pro, but one that truly curves over the front of the device.
Alex Alderson,

While Huawei advertises the P40 Pro and P40 Pro+ as having "quad-curve overflow" displays, we have already demonstrated why you should not trust marketing renders. Simply, the quad-curve overflow display does not curve over all the edge of the device as its name suggests it does. The display in the next Samsung Galaxy smartphone might, though.

Spotted by LetsGoDigital, Samsung has filed a patent for a display that curves over the top and bottom edges of the device. Filed in July 2019 by Samsung Display at the Chinese National Intellectual Property Administration (CNIPA), LetsGoDigital seemingly found the designs after the World Intellectual Property Office (WIPO) published them on its Global Design Database on March 24.

The website has also teamed up with Concept Creator to help us imagine what such a device could look like. Imagined with the rear-facing cameras of the Galaxy S20 Ultra, the extreme curvature would certainly catch people's attention. While the display undoubtedly looks futuristic, we would question how it is any more useful than contemporary display designs.

Indeed, Samsung moved away from aggressive curvatures with the Galaxy S20 series, so this design may never make it market. Nonetheless, the renders that Concept Creator and LetsGoDigital have created still look striking.
