I'm glad Samsung keeps pushing the design envelope! However this idea does not seem too appealing. I keep trying to imagine uses for it and all I can think about is it would only be useful if I've set the phone down on a table or bed and right I lay my head next to it, but how often would someone want to view an alert on their phone without raising their head it picking up the phone? Never sounds about right. It also sounds like it would be more dangerous to drop your phone as it would always be falling directly on one of the screens.
Using the sides as extra display space for notifications/status is interesting, but more desirable IMO is an e-ink e-reader display on the back, as presented by this Russian-designed YotaPhone phone: http://hothardware.com/News/DualScreen-YotaPhone-Launching-in-December-Rocks-Android-and-Two-43Inch-Displays/.
