Samsung has begun testing three-sided displays for potential application on mobile devices, reported Korean site zdnet.co.kra citing a Korean supplier of Samsung parts.

The technology has been rumored before but now online sources claim that the device could go into production by the end of this year.

"While I cannot mention specifics, we are planning on unveiling an innovative large-screen flagship model, an attractive phone that takes advantage of cutting-edge materials," Kim Hyeon Jun, executive manager at Samsung's Wireless Business Division said during Samsung's second-quarter earnings conference call.

According to tech site Cnet, the three-sided screen will utilise a plastic substrate that is reportedly limited in quantity and difficult to work with. If released by the end of this year, it will most likely be limited to Korean audiences.
