Posted: October 9, 2013 by Emily Brown
Samsung's concave phone is very much real. As it was announced, the Korean firm has just taken the wraps off "the world's first curved display smartphone." The unusually designed handset is said to be available in Korea on October 10.
The gently curved display offers a range of "exclusive experiences," including a roll feature that will let the users check date, time, missed calls and battery life with the display off. Also, they will have the ability to incline the phone to manage such apps as music, pictures and videos.
When it comes to specs, the phone will run Android 4.3 Jelly Bean on a 2.3GHz quad-core processor, which comes with 32GB or 64GB of internal memory. And of course, it goes without saying that the Galaxy Round features a vast 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display. Plus, there are speculations that a variety of software adjustments will be made to the smartphone, aimed at making the most of it.
At first, it will come in "Luxury Brown," with more color flavors to follow. As for the exact pricing and availability, they were not revealed.
