ZDnet’s sources also indicate that the Galaxy Note 4 will include a Youm panel, a type of flexible screen which Samsung demonstrated in 2013.

However, as these sort of displays can only be produced in limited numbers, the three-sided Galaxy Note 4 could be a Korea-only product.

Verizon, T-Mobile, AT&T, and Sprint should be carrying the Galaxy Note 4 in the United States.
