Samsung upset a lot of early Galaxy S5 adopters back in June when it announced the Galaxy S5 LTE-A, an improved version of the Galaxy S5 with a better display and a faster processor, just two months after the original first went on sale. However, it was only made available in South Korea.

Now a similar handset has popped up on international Samsung product pages with a new moniker — Galaxy S5 Plus — indicating a worldwide launch could be right around the corner.

Although we’ve yet to see a truly mass-market wearable device sweep the world, most people working in high tech believe that devices like smartwatches represent the next big frontier.

With that in mind, Samsung has debuted a potentially transformative creation at the ongoing InterBattery 2014 exhibition being held in Seoul, Korea: a rollable, flexible battery.

Although not too many details are known yet about the exact materials and structural design advances used to create it, it is reported that the battery can function even when bent in half, or rolled up into the shape of a paper cup.
