Samsung Galaxy S III to get curved design?

New snaps show a mystery Samsung handset with a slinky S-shaped build – but will we see it in 2012?

We might not be getting a Samsung Galaxy S III at Mobile World Congress this month but that hasn't stopped the (supposed) leaks coming thick and fast. Like this mystery handset snapped and shared on Chinese site XDA – could that be the Sammy lettering up top? And how comfortable would that S-shaped design actually be?

Your guess is as good as ours as to whether we're looking at a next-gen Sammy smartphone, let alone one we'll see in Summer 2012. But that doesn't stop us ogling the elongated 4.6in, curved form in the photo above.

XDA also reckon the massive display will rock 3D – we'd like to see how that works on a bendy handset like the one pictured. Flexible phones? Yes please, but not for the foreseeable future we'd bet.
