Samsung finally announced its new anticipated smartphone with curved display, the Galaxy Round.
The phone is a duplicate of the Note 3 inside and out, with the 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display, curved, with a Full HD 1080p resolution, a 2.3GHz quad-core processor, 3GB or RAM, 13MP camera, Android 4.3, and 2,800mAh battery.
The curved display is possible because it is made from durable plastic polymer. And it doesn’t just make a gradual bend possible — it also sheds some weight. The Galaxy Round weighs in at just 154 grams, which is 14 grams lighter than the Galaxy Note 3.
Samsung had made some new features to take advantages of the curved: the Roll Effect enables the user to check information — date, time, missed calls and battery — the Gravity Effect allows creating visual interaction with the screen by tilting the device, Bounce UX enables music control, and Side Mirror allows access to list of the album content with a left and right tilt.
The angle of the arc will make easier to put it in the pants pocket, and feel a bit more natural to hold in your hand than a near-6-inch flat slab of phone would. And With the ultra-wide viewing angles today’s smartphones display offer, the Samsung Galaxy Round’s curved display could be just enough to keep sideways glances from skimming any important details about what you’re doing on your phone.
The device will be available with Luxury Brown color, and the price will be 1000$, but the sad thing is that it is available now only in Korea.
