Samsung Prepping Galaxy Round Smartphone with Curved Screen

Forbes has just run a report today that puts the spotlight on an upcoming Samsung handset with a curved display being announced sometime this month called the Galaxy Round.  Some have speculated that the Galaxy Round will included a curved OLED 5.7″ screen.  This is just after LG has announced similar screen tech in a 6″ variety.  One date being thrown around is October 10th 2013, which could possibly be the initially unveiling of the device.

It appears that specs of the Galaxy Round match those of the Galaxy Note 3, which packs the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor clocked at 2.3gHz and 3GB of RAM.  Some expect the new Galaxy Round to cost as much as $950 dollars which would make it one of the most expensive smartphones on the market, surpassing the high-end iPhone 5s and Samsung’s own Galaxy Note 3.

More details regarding availability and press shots should be available sometime later this week.
