Samsung’s upcoming curved smartphone allegedly leaked, could this be the Galaxy Round? [UPDATE]

Samsung Galaxy Round curved smartphone

Yesterday we filled you in on a rumor that Samsung’s long rumored flexible OLED display phone could launch with the name “Galaxy Round”. Today, that device may have been leaked by none other than @evleaks.

Aside from its model number (SM-G910S), no other details were given. Mr. Leaks was unable to confirm the “Round” moniker we heard Samsung could go with when the device is made official. While this particular model is headed for Korea, it’s unclear if Samsung will bring this monstrosity to other markets.

Samsung Galaxy Curve flexible OLED smartphone

We’re not sure if we should only blame ourselves, but we had something much different pictured when we heard a “curved display”. Seems this is merely a bent Samsung Galaxy Note 3, minus the S Pen. We suppose this could help the device fit better in those skinny jeans the kids are wearing nowadays — but what do you think? Love it, or hate it?

This definitely leaves the door wide open for LG to swoop in with a better designed version of their own rumored flexible display smartphone, said the be called the LG Z. According to leaked images, LG’s device will bend a different way, more like an extreme version of the Galaxy Nexus we saw a few years back.

  • GoAndroidForever

    Fake!!!!

    • Leo

      Agree, why would the front facing camera be pointing at an angle? If this is real, Samsung is just ridiculous.

      • Danny Dodge

        It has been confirmed as real :(

  • GoAndroidForever

    Zero benefit from this kind of curve. Useless.

    • scoter man1

      I think it’s supposed to fit against the curve of your leg, but I agree. I don’t see it.

    • spicymeatball

      There are non ascetic reasons. Like a lighter, thinner, less fragile display. If none of that is maximized in this phone then they are just trying to steal LG’s thunder and it will make them look bad.

      • Wesley Da’Nomad

        Trying to steal LG’s thunder? Samsung has been developing flexible displays for ages, too. Why wouldn’t they release it?

    • thedicemaster

      it fits better in pockets, and it’s easier to reach the left side of the screen.

  • MITM

    DAFUQ? O_o

  • Cesar Ortiz

    this looks hilarious.

  • MK2

    Let’s take a moment to remember how starkly different the Galaxy Gear ended up being as compared to the leaked renderings. Unfortunately.

  • Benjamin Mackie

    No helicopter in the top left corner, fake for sure

  • Hrethgir

    I can see that curve making it a little more comfortable to hold in your hand.

  • Mike

    That is not the final design. The image is to create hype around the unknown device.

  • Jody Schoolcraft

    Here you go take my mone…wait a second!!! Okay Samsung that’s strike two!

  • CGS

    Why would I want a curved phone?

    Oh, that’s right. I wouldn’t.

  • Fel Pe

    Before flat screens were the shiii, now curved screens are coming back…. go figure.

  • SorinDobrin

    When you guys mentioned “curved screen”….I thought will get a screen with big tities on it

  • Jerry

    WTF??!!!!

  • josh nolan

    Lol this is what happens when you are simply just throwing out ideas simply to be first…. You over saturate the market… And you …produce…turds…(galaxy gear)… Hopefully this is fake

  • EnX$$

    Samsung Galaxy Taco :) go home samsung you drank

    • Cesar Ortiz

      I would like a Galaxy chalupa please, lol!!

    • Fel Pe

      Samsung is always ahead of the competition. When everybody is rushing to release wearable devices Samsung is creating a new niche of tech products: edible devices!!!

  • Chris

    chris, where are the lg photo leaks? I am interested in seeing what they are possibly bringing to the table. this is definitely not worth a premium over the note 3 in my eyes if this is real

    *nevermind, in the oct. 3rd post:

      Linked in the post but yeah, that’s the one.

  • IOS is for winners

    iphones are much better than this, so pathetic for Samsung to create this POS.
    iphones are the best and ipad is the best selling tablet ever.

    • bstiff

      Really? I guess I missed the part where the iphone had a curved screen or a larger screen size.

    • Cesar Ortiz

      wtf, why are you posting on this android articles?

    • moises1204

      IOS is for winners! hahaha you mean for weirdness?

  • Wes Loveday

    And the point is?

    • http://twitter.com/gamercore Chris Chavez

      To put taco meat on the screen and consume.

      • Fel Pe

        Finally a real good use for it!!

  • ac

    Sorry, I’ll take my Note 3 over that ugly ish. I dunno why they felt the need to be first to market with this. They should’ve just held off, even if they weren’t first, to make the completely foldable screen.

    • http://twitter.com/gamercore Chris Chavez

      Was really hoping they’d do something fun and stylish, like bend the screen around the sides, or make it wrap around the top and bottom. *shrugs*

      • ac

        Yup…Oh well. I’ll just wait until they finally get their concept/mock design to actual production.

  • Son Nguyen

    this is stupid

  • John Andrew Stuart

    *face palm!*

    This makes about as much sense as the fox saying,
