Ryan Martin / 5 years ago
Samsung have finally made the Galaxy Round 5.7 inch curved smartphone official. We reported a couple of days ago that the handset would be announced this week and Samsung have duly delivered. The official Samsung blog, Samsung Tomorrow, revealed the phone – but only to the South Korean market initially. South Korea will get the new handset from tomorrow (October 10th).
The handset features a concave inward-curving 5.7 inch 1920 x 1080 display which is one of Samsung’s Super AMOLED panels. Internally a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC powers the whole unit with a 2.3GHz quad core CPU, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. There is a 13MP rear camera and 2MP front camera. A rather large 2800 mAh battery powers the whole device which measures in at 151.1mm x 78.6mm x 7.8mm and weighs 154g.Samsung are equipping the Galaxy Round with Android 4.3 and a feature called the “roll effect” which allows the rolling motion on the curve to interact with the phone. There is also a “Gravity Effect” that allows you to switch songs by tapping either side of the display.
Samsung’s Galaxy Round certainly isn’t going to be gentle on your pocket and in South Korea the luxury brown model will cost 1,089,00 South Korean Won which is about $1010.
