Samsung might ramp up to a 5.8-inch curved screen for its upcoming Galaxy Note 7, claims reports from GSMHelpDesk and Korea Herald. These reports also indicated that there will be no flat screen variants for the model.
If the reports are to be believed, Galaxy Note 7 would be the first phablet to sport a dual-edge display.
