That just looks weird. Three sided display? I'm confident Samsung won't risk their precious Note line on too much experimenting. This would probably show up only as a pilot project on the side, like the Round. At least I hope so...

Just give me a S5 quality screen, perhaps increase the size to 6", work on high quality everything and then leave it at that - and I'll be happy. Oh and kill TouchWiz with fire while you're at it. :cool:

I agree that Samsung won't drastically change the Note 4. That's not to say that it won't be great, but it has developed a loyal following and this rendition is a bit out there. We'll see...

yes....TW still needs a work!
I thought these same rumors were floating around last fall that this design would end up on the S5 too?

Agreed. I think this might be a prototype that will never be massed produced.

I just want Samsung to hurry up and produce a limited run of their folding phone concept.

I love the idea of a pocket phone that opens into a mini tablet.

I don't even care if it only lasts a year before it gets too many screen traces broken. Samsung, take my money!

I'm getting old, man. I can't wait forever to tech to catch up :)

This is also the form factor I am waiting for Samsung to hopefully release in the not to distant future. My Note 3 is already the device you find in my hand over a iPad or other device so this would just be the best of both worlds.

Please, just don't make it bigger like they did with the S5.

Same size screen
Smaller form factor
Premium materials

Thats all I want!
