“Galaxy Round” to be how Samsung’s curved display smartphone arrives?

Samsung’s put together a phone using flexible display technology to give it a curved screen, and we know that the company intends to launch the handset this week. That puts us only days away from finally seeing this next-gen display make it into a commercial phone, but just how will it arrive? Some rumors have talked about a device taking its cues from the Note 3, while others have looked to a smaller handset. As we wait to get to the bottom of that hardware question, we’ve begun to hear talk about a possible name for the model, which could launch as the Galaxy Round.

It’s an odd name, sure, and we’ve already heard suggestions that it might just be a code name. And one of our first thoughts was that this could be a translation issue, like that bigger iPhone Math/+ confusion from earlier this year, with “round” supposed to be something more like “curved.”

Nevertheless, a trademark application just over one week old clearly confirms that Samsung’s interested in using the name Galaxy Round for a product. If it really is this model, we can’t say, but it could easily be corroboration that those rumors were on the right track.
