This Could Be Our First Look at Samsung's New Galaxy Phone

Feb 03, 2015

Samsung might be bringing a wraparound screen design to its main line of smartphones.

In the smartphone maker's invite to its next media event, Samsung teased an image that appears to be a new device with a wraparound screen, similar to its Galaxy Note Edge. The Edge's secondary side screen lets users navigate app menus and control media.

The invite is for Samsung's Galaxy Unpacked event on March 1 at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, where the company is widely expected to reveal its next flagship Galaxy phone.

Samsung is under pressure to deliver a popular new flagship phone. Samsung reported last week its first drop in quarterly profits in three years. The company had already teased in its earnings statement "innovative design and differentiated features" to boost flagging smartphone sales, which have come under threat by Apple's record-breaking iPhone sales.
