Samsung is reportedly set to announce a curved display smartphone known as the Galaxy Round, reads the Cnet article. The phone would use a plastic display rather than one made of glass. The Asiae report follows a comment made by a Samsung executive in September confirming such a phone. “We plan to introduce a smartphone with a curved display in South Korea in October,” D.J. Lee, Samsung’s mobile business head of strategic marketing, said at an event launching the Galaxy Note 3 smartphone, Reuters reported at the time. LG is also gearing up a flexible display smartphone called the G Flex, CNET recently learned, though that phone may not surface until November. What exactly is a flexible display smartphone? Those of you who envision bending and flexing such smartphones may be disappointed. The phone’s body itself is rigid. Rather, the display is curved although stationary. The curve allows the phone to fit more snugly around the contours of your face.
