Samsung executive says model with curved screen will have October release date

While Samsung has shown off a working prototype with a flexible display, the problem for the OEM is mass producing the screens and having them work. Not only do these screens have to be flexible, they need to be thin and resistant to heat. A number of times over the last few months, we passed along the rumor about a variant of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 to launch with a Gumby-like screen. Instead, the curved display is the next evolutionary step for the smartphone screen which eventually will lead to flexible screens, or ones that can fold up for a better fit in your pocket.
Recently, a mystery Samsung branded handset recently slipped into India for some R&D action. Perhaps this model, SM-W2014, will have something to do with the upcoming unit with a curved screen,

It'll probably be a low tier region based phone to test out the market

It's going to be low end like the Galaxy Beam, GS4 Zoom, Mega, Rugby etc. You know, they actually see if people want these things before adding them to their flagships at the expense of size like cough...HTC, Sony, and Nokia.
