Samsung Galaxy Round, World’s First Curved Display Phone Gets Official

Samsung Round

Rumours were true. Samsung’s curved display phone is finally here and its called Samsung Galaxy Round featuring a horizontal curve that is pretty much deep and hence notable.

Carrying forward the convectional design, Samsung Galaxy Round offers 5.7″ Full HD Super AMOLED with 7.9mm thick and weighs 154g offers a comfortable hand grip feeling to user, and exclusive experiences of curved display.

Samsung said that it has put the curved nature of phone in use by allowing users to check information such as date, time, missed call and battery easily when home screen is off, and the Gravity Effect for creating visual interaction with the screen by tilting the device.

Other than this the deep curve will serve no purpose, but probably a distinction you can experience amongst your fellows.

Inside the Galaxy Round there is a 2.3 GHz MSM 8974 quad-core processor to power the phone. Other luxuries include 32GB of internal storage expandable up to 64GB through MicroSD and 3GB of RAM.

Galaxy Round sports a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera while there is a 2MP front-facing camera too.

Galaxy Round will run on Android 4.3 with Samsung’s Touch Wiz interface.

There is a 2,800mAh battery to offer at least one day of fair usage.
