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.
