Dual curved edge smartphone displays have been exclusive to Samsung for a really long time (that is, if you don’t count LG’s G Flex and G Flex 2) and It’s only recently that the technology has started showing up on other manufacturer phones. You might argue that it doesn’t add any real value to the core functionality, but it sure as hell looks enchanting. Here are a few non-Sammy phones with curved displays.
Xiaomi Mi Note 2
When Xiaomi launched its Mi Note 2 in China late last year, it was instantly flagged as a Samsung Galaxy Note 7 replacement simply because of the design similarities that it holds with the ill-fated Samsung flagship.
The Mi Note 2 has a 5.7-inch Full HD dual curved edge display layered with 3D curved glass on both front and rear. Other high-end specs associated with the phone include Snapdragon 821 chipset, 6GB RAM, up to 128GB storage, 22.56MP rear camera, HD audio, and 4070mAh battery.
Huawei Mate 9 Pro
Another Huawei phone to flaunt a dual curved edge display is the Mate 9 Pro. The Curves on the Mate 9 Pro aren’t as pronounced as the ones on Galaxy S7 Edge, but still the subtle ones too look cool.
The handset includes a 5.5-inch QHD AMOLED panel, 6GB RAM, 128GB storage, dual 20MP + 12MP rear camera, 4000mAh battery and is powered by Kirin 960 octa-core chipset.
In terms of design, the Vivo XPlay6 borrows from both iPhone and Samsung. This Snapdragon 820 powered phone flaunts a 5.46-inch AMOLED display with curved side edges and also implements an edge launcher like Samsung.
Other features include dual rear cameras, 16MP front camera, 6GB RAM and 128GB storage.
LG is ending 2017 on a high note with the V30. The handset includes an 18:9 aspect ratio POLED display with subtle curves on both sides. It’s also powered by Snapdragon 835, is dust and water resistant and has a HiFi quad-DAC.
The handset is currently running on Android 7.1.1 Nougat but will get Android 8.0 Oreo update by the end of this year.
LeEco Upcoming Flagship
LeEco’s upcoming flagship will reportedly house a Snapdragon 835 processor and have a dual curved edge display. Also confirming its high-end aspirations is the 8GB dynamic RAM integrated within.
The new LeEco flagship with Snapdragon 835 processor is expected to release this April.
Zuk Edge II Special Edition
Rumors of Zuk using a dual curved edge display have been around for a while. The recently launched Zuk Edge, however, was missing the edge to edge dual curved display.
At the same time, fresh leaks on Weibo give credible evidence that Lenovo is all set to launch a special edition dubbed as Zuk Edge II that will finally brandish those killer curves.
