Samsung to announce first flexible display smartphone this week? Multiple Korean sources are reporting that Samsung will be first to market with a flexible, curved display smartphone.
The tech giant could launch the phone as early as this week, with the tentative name "Galaxy Round."

By using a plastic panel, the display will be more durable and cheaper to produce. The device could also feature the thinnest bezel of any smartphone, due to its flexibility.

It is unclear how much the Round will cost, but it is expected to specs similar to the recently unveiled Galaxy Note 3.

LG today announced they would be building a 6-inch curved display for launch in November. The race is on.

I wonder how bad it'd be damage if I put it in my rear jeans pocket. Just how much could it tolerate.
