Samsung Galaxy Round goes official

Just few hours ago we saw the leaked images of Samsung new device that features curve screen and now it is official as Galaxy Round!

Samsung Galaxy Round Key Specification :

  • 5.7" Super AMOLED with 1080p resolution
  • 2.3GHz quad-core processor
  • 3GB RAM
  • 13MP back facing camera
  • 32GB internal storage
  • LTE
  • 2800mAh
  • Android 4.3 Jelly Bean
  • 151 x 79 x 7.9mm

Samsung says that it has also developed new software experiences to take advantage of the curved design such as tilting the phone while it's sitting on a table to check notifications, battery life and the time. Throughout the interface Samsung is working to make the software feel more at home on a curved display, offering tilt-based interfaces for some apps.

Samsung says that this curved design makes the Galaxy Round comfortable to hold, and the company has also included several unique features that take advantage of the concave screen. One such feature is the "Roll Effect," which allows the user to view information like the date, time, missed calls and battery level when the screen is off and the device is tilted from side to side. The curved display is also said to create a smoother-looking transition when flipping between multiple home screens.

The device is exclusive to SK Telecom in Korea at the moment starting October 10th in "Luxury Brown" with pricing set at 1.09 million won (about $1015), with no details on a broader release at this point.
