I asked the very same question.  It's obvious, so you'd think that the Samsung engineers would have thought of it and incorporated some sort of protection against unintentional touches.  We'll see.

How Do You Hold It?

Remember this phone is the size of a Galaxy Note. How do you hold it without accidentally hitting the edge buttons? The pictures I saw showed hands holding that edge very delicately, which seems likely to lead to dropped phones.

I believe that we will have in a few years smart phones, which consist only of an OLED. Front side, back side and the edges. Imagine how much information you could display on such a device.

Good idea, will it break?

This looks very cool. However, people do employ device protection cover. How it can be used for curved display? If not, what are chances of it breaking more?

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
