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_galaxy_round_3Samsung 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.
