Samsung's SM-G930 said to be a new high-end model, possibly a sequel to the Samsung Galaxy Round
A tweet from tipster @upleaks reveals that Samsung is working on a new high-end device with the model number SM-G930. The Samsung Galaxy S6 is expected to be the SM-G920 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge should be the SM-G925. After ruling out the new Galaxy S6 models that Sammy will introduce at MWC, is there a way that we can look at the past to predict the future? There absolutely is.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 is the SM-G900. Adding 10 to that model number (just like the SM-G930 is 10 points above the Galaxy S6) gives us the SM-G910. Now if we can figure out what that model is, we would have a strong idea about the new high-end phone.

Sure enough, the SM-G910 is the Samsung Galaxy Round. Hmm. Seems to us that we could be seeing a new curved screen phone from Sammy. Keep in mind that unlike the LG G Flex 2, which bends in at the top and bottom, the Galaxy Round curves in from the sides.

So our projection calls for a sequel to the Samsung Galaxy Round. Will this be unveiled at MWC? We will know for sure on March 1st.

Thanks for the tip!

That curve is so weird.. i mean i can at least understand the curve in LG Flex which may give better viewing experience when playing games or watching movies.. But this curve??!!

Otherwise Apple will sue them for copying the iPhone 6+ curve

Both types of curves reduce reflections of surrounding light. The face is usually darker than the surroundings, especially outside and it's mostly the face that gets reflected this way. Thus better contrast, less reflections and better readable screen.
Here's a full explanation of the benefits, including measurements regarding reflections:

That's quite an interesting read
So I guess it might not be a gimmick after all

And why does more options bother you?
Let me guess, because it is Samsung, right?

i remember when the round was first announced and a few people were saying visibility would be better because of the shape. they never said why though...

I think the round is kinda sorta goofy looking.

No! Stop Samsung! Just Stop! There's no benefit to the Galaxy round other than an awkwardly shaped phone in your pocket.

Galaxy Round was an awesome phone! IMO it is better than Note Edge
