Samsung took the wraps off the Galaxy Round – the world’s first smartphone with curved display. The peculiarly designed handset will be available in Korea on October 10.


Undoubtedly, the biggest highlight of the Samsung Galaxy Round is its curved display. The latter is a 5.7” Super Flexible AMOLED unit with Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels)


The rest of the Samsung Galaxy Round are quite Note 3-ish: there is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC with quad-core Krait CPU clocked at 2.3GHz, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of built-in memory, and microSD card slot. There’s a 13MP camera on the back of the device, a 2MP front-facing unit, as well as full connectivity suite on board. The Samsung Galaxy Round measures are 151.1 x 79.6 x 7.9mm, while its weight tips the scale at 154g. The handset is powered by a 2,800mAh battery.


The Samsung Galaxy Round boots Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, dressed in Samsung’s latest TouchWIz UI. Samsung has naturally added a couple of tricks to utilize the curved screen of the device. They include Bounce UX for controlling the device’s music player by tapping on its sides, and Gravity Effect for interacting with the display by rolling it.


The Samsung Galaxy Round will be available in Luxury Brown for (approximately $1,000). More colors will be available soon.


Unfortunately, currently there are no plans for international availability (as in outside South Korea).


LG is also ready with Curved Display Smartphone that is going to released in November.
