    @evleaks, who is always a source you want to pay attention to when it comes to leaks, has just posted this picture on their Twitter account. Yes, this is what appears to be the curved display phone from Samsung we've been hearing about for a while.

    I understand the use and need for flexible displays when it comes to be dropped and what not. Shatterproof would be amazing. but why an actual curved device. My wife had a Galaxy Nexus and the curve was super minimal and IMO, pointless. Am I missing something here? I get having a curved screen for something like the Galaxy Gear watch...buy why a phone?

    I remember getting so excited over the GNex but the curve was so slight I then wondered "what's the point?" Shatter proof makes sense to me.

    A paradigm shift is usually proceeded by baby steps, folks. Flexibility is the future and this is paving the way. Embrace it.
