Curved will soon be the new square smartphone shape, according to Samsung executives, the company plans to “introduce a curved display smartphone in October,” at an event today in yesterday, in Korea dedicated mainly to showing off the
Galaxy Gear and Galaxy Note 3. The executive however declined to give any further details — including price, exact release
date, or even what operating system it would be using. Samsung has technically shown off curved-screen phones before at CES early this year in collaboration with YOUM. The company also applied for a recent patent for a smartphone that is curved along its vertical axis. However, presumably this upcoming smartphone would include something more dramatic than what it offered with the Nexus S or Galaxy Nexus.
