Samsung to release ‘curved glass’ smartphone in October

Samsung are planning to release a smartphone in October which features ‘curved glass’. The company announced this in a media event in Seoul last night.

D.J. Lee, Samsung’s mobile business head of strategic marketing said “We plan to introduce a smartphone with a curved display in South Korea in October.”

No other details were announced at the event and guesses are being made right now as to whether the curved screen will be a flexible display. Samsung recently replaced Apple as the world’s most profitable smartphone maker and they have already shown a prototype of a flexible AMOLED screen at the Consumer Electronics Show in 2011.

The Nexus S was also the first smartphone which offered a ‘Contour Display’ although the sales were not that strong at the time.

Kitguru says: Rumor has it that Apple are also playing with curved glass – and their upcoming wristwatch may feature the technology.
