Samsung's curved Galaxy Round phone won't be available to the rest of the world anytime soon

According to reports, the curved Round is a limited run only for the Korean market

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.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
