Rumors of smartphones boasting flexible displays have been unusually quiet over the past few months, considering 2013 has long been tipped as D-Day Year, but apparently we only needed a spark to ignite the bendy flame.
Spark that came less than 24 hours ago by way of a report based on confidential sources and published by members of the Korean press. And now the fire is unquenchable, as a cryptic Samsung smartphone carrying the SM-G910 model number and believed to be the world’s first (or second) handheld with a curvable panel of sorts has been benchmarked over at GFX Bench.
To our knowledge, the SM-G910 code doesn’t jibe or tie in any way to previously released Samsung devices, meaning it could be the road-opener for a new breed of gadgets. But if that’s the case, we highly doubt it will be so similar to the Galaxy Note 3 as some sources claim.
As far as actual specs are concerned, the SM-G910 appears to be built around a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor (huzzah), with a pairing Adreno 330 GPU and pre-loaded Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. Meanwhile, the display (whose size is unknown) clocks in at an impressive Full HD (1,920 x 1,080) resolution. Well, whatever this thing is, it’s safe to assume it’ll sit proudly at the very top of the Android totem pole, eh?
