Samsung's curved Galaxy Round phone - possibly just a prototype

Last week, Samsung broke ahead of the curved AMOLED pack with the introduction of its potato chip shaped Galaxy Round phone.

Spec-wise, the phone is basically a Galaxy Note 3, but with a slight length-wise bend that users can push on for a new level of UI.

Unfortunately for those harboring dreams of getting their hands on a warped and wobbly handset, SamMobile is reporting that an unnamed "insider" says that the Round is only a prototype with a strictly limited run for the Korean market.

We have reached out to Samsung for comment.

Still, not all hope is lost for those in the market for a phone doing a sit-up! LG's all-but-official curved G-Flex is widely expected to make its debut next week.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
