Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (KRX:005930) is reportedly going to announce a new curved display smartphone this week called the Galaxy Round, according to Korean news agency Asiae. The translated version of the article mentions the date October 10th, but it is not entirely clear whether that is the date for the revealing of the Round.
The Galaxy Round smartphone would use plastic instead of glass to give the phone it’s curved display.
At Samsung’s launch event for the Galaxy Note 3 smartphone, Samsung’s mobile business head of strategic marketing D.J. Lee said that they were planning on launching a smartphone with a curved display in South Korea sometime in October.
Samsung also filed a trademark for the name “Galaxy Round” also, but the filing did not reveal anything about the device.
