First image of the Samsung Galaxy Round curved smartphone leaks
The last couple days has been a buzz about flexible displays, because after an incredibly long time where all we heard was "the flexible displays are coming", the message has finally shifted to "they're almost here!" We learned that LG has been working on flexible components, like batteries, to go along with new curved displays, and the rumor put Samsung announcing its new curved glass smartphone this week.
An FCC filing has put the name of Samsung's new line of flexible glass devices as the Galaxy Round, and now @evleaks has released what look like the first two images of the upcoming curved display device from Samsung. The images show a device that looks like it is bound for the South Korean market, based not only on the Korean text, but the LTE-Advanced branding on the back. It also includes the same fake stitching that we saw on the new Galaxy Note 3 and Note 10.1 (2014 edition).
Of course, the big news here is the curved display. It looks to have a fairly pronounced curve, and unlike some concepts we've seen which used the curve to wrap the screen around the side, this first one looks like it is just aiming for ergonomics during the rare times that you're actually using your smartphone as a phone. The curve should make it more comfortable against your face. This is just the first flexible display device, so the more innovative designs are likely still in the works.
