We reported a few weeks ago that Samsung has been developing a smartphone with a 3D curved display that would have allowed the company to achieve an unprecedented 110% screen to body ratio.

As illustrated by this graphic by Samsung leaker Ice Universe this would be because the screen would not just have fully covered the front of the device, but also wrapped around all sides.

Now however according to the same leaker the revolutionary device has been cancelled:

The device would have been a special 10th-anniversary handset with presumably all the latest technologies.

Ice Universe promises that the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 will still be pretty good.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 has tiny bezels, is believed to use a vibrating screen as an earpiece and have a special depth-sensing Time of Flight camera, but my enthusiasm for that handset has been dampened by strong rumours that the 3.5mm headphone jack has been removed.

Were our readers looking forward to the truly bezel-less smartphone, or is the technology just too impractical? Let us know below.
