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

Samsung Galaxy Round

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.
