Samsung exhibits curved Galaxy Round smartphone

Just a day after LG demonstrated the world’s first flexible OLED display, rival Samsung has struck back – the Korean company has shown the Galaxy Round – a smartphone with a curved display.

Samsung says that using a curved display will make it easier for customers to hold the device despite its large 5.7-inch display at Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels). The Galaxy Round also measures 151.1 x 79.6 x 7.9 mm and weighs 154 grams – these dimensions pack a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor with four cores at 2.3 GHz, Adreno 330 graphics, support for LTE, 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal memory, a microSD card slot, 802.11n Wi-Fi, rear 13 MP and front 2 MP cameras, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, a USB 3.0 port and a 2800 mAh battery. The device runs Android 4.3.

Don’t be too excited though – the Galaxy Round will be available in South Korea only as of now and it costs around USD 1000, which is not cheap by all means.
