Samsung To Launch Phone With 'Curved' Display In October

Samsung To Launch Phone With 'Curved' (But Not Bendy) Display

Fresh from revealing its latest curved TVs, Samsung might be about to announce something a lot smaller - but also a lot bigger.

Reports have emerged that the South Korean tech giant will launch a curved phone in October.

Reuters reports that the news was dropped by Samsung's mobile business head of strategic marketing D.J. Lee at a Galaxy Note 3 launch event in Seoul.

"We plan to introduce a smartphone with a curved display in South Korea in October," he is reported as saying.

But while you might be harbouring dreams of a phone you can fold up and put in your pocket, we're not expecting anything quite that innovative (yet).

What we're hearing and reading is that the phone will have a curve but not totally flexible design - unique, but not world-changing.

Back in January Engadget reported on a prototype Samsung device with a similar form factor - it seems that the phone to be announced this year will resemble that gadget in most respects.
