Thanks to Ian Nott, the Samsung Youm smartphone turns from prototype to render, a pretty beautiful one, I have to say. As you can see, this Samsung concept phone has one normal straight edge and one that goes around the bezel and keeps going.

The Youm looks like more of a device with an already bent screen, since it doesn’t seem to flex…
