The report cites a company insider and claims that the curved display smartphone's are being developed according to its release schedules.

Moreover, the report also suggests that the South Korean giant will be launching its first Firefox OS smartphone next month, which tips-off that the company might unveil both the curved display smartphone and the Firefox OS device together at an event.
