Could Huawei be following the footsteps of the Samsung Galaxy Edge series of dual-curved display devices?

The tip came from Chinese website Weibo, as reported by GSM Arena, and it points out that Chinese mobile company Huawei may be venturing into the dual-curve display business, as they are rumored to be releasing a dual-curved smartphone that is “2K” on all sides. This presumably means that the device talked about here will be having a Super AMOLED display with Quad HD (2K resolution) 2560 x 1440 resolution.

The report claimed that Huawei is planning to ship 3 million of the panel design a month.

Should this rumor prove to be true, this will be Huawei’s first take on a dual-curved display smartphone, as well as its first take on a Super AMOLED Display with a Quad HD resolution.

Another Chinese manufacturer, Xiaomi, was previously rumored to be working on a same dual-curved display device. According to a report by Android Headlines, an alleged photo leak showed what is said to be the previously rumored Xiamoi “Arch”. The image shows a phone, possibly around 5-inches wide in display size, sporting what looks like the rumored dual curved edges.

But as the site notes, the thick bezel on the screen makes it very unlikely for a dual curved edge design, which means users should take the information with a grain of salt.

While the Chinese mobile company has not denied plans or activities regarding development of dual cured edge phones, all users can hold on to now is the alleged leaked photo of the rumored Xiaomi ‘Arch’.

Rumors of the Xiaomi ‘Arch’ first popped up back in the latter part of 2014along with rumors of the Mi4 and Mi 4S starting to surface onlineand had older rumors proven to be true, it could have been the world’s first smartphone with dual-edged display.
