No flex glass?

I guess this phone doesn't get the fabled flexible screen.

What do they mean by "global roaming"? Don't need a SIM card if we take the Verizon version to Europe?

Don't expect to see a flexible screen any time soon. A fixed curved screen, yes - Samsung has shown very early prototypes of that - but not one that you can bend yourself.

Global roaming means it has the radios and antennas to support GSM and WCDMA on overseas frequency bands. Last year's Galaxy S III for Verizon supported this, but Sprint's version did not.

Yep, such tech. exists. Commercializing it is something else entirely.

I saw a headlines that LG us bringing flexible displays to phones by the end of this year.

Hopefully flexible displays, whether it's from LG or Samsung will help to free those stuck in the "IPhone Matrix"

Like the Galaxy Nexus, or are you thinking of different examples?

The Galaxy Nexus only has curved glass in front of the screen. The display panel itself is not curved.

Is that a deal breaker for you? I would prefer liquid metal.
