Samsung Galaxy Round a Rocking Phablet, Features Curve Display – Watch the Video Demo Here
Published on October 10th, 2013
Samsung has recently revealed a rather odd but unique and first of its kind phablet with a curve display and body – the Samsung Galaxy Round. This one of a kind Android phablet features a huge 5.7-inch Super Flexible AMOLED display with Full HD resolution. It also features an ultra-fast LTE-A 4G network connectivity, and the rest of the specs are already similar to Galaxy Note 3, less the stylus pen.
Samsung Galaxy Round Specifications
Like I said, the rest of its specifications are like from that of the Galaxy Note 3. Under the hood of the Samsung Galaxy Round is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC with Krait CPU clocked at 2.3GHz, paired with a 3GB of RAM. Meanwhile, graphics processing is handled by an Adreno 330 processor. There’s also a built-in 32GB of storage plus a microSD card slot that is able to read up to 64GB of microSD. It runs on Android v 4.3 Jelly Bean out of the box since Kit Kat is not yet released.
The Samsung Galaxy Round has a 13 megapixel real facing camera paired with a 2 megapixel front facing camera. The camera has the same features from that of the Galaxy Note 3 like dual shot, simultaneous video and image recording, image stabilization, HDR, panorama and the others.
The rest of the internal specs are really similar to the Galaxy Note 3. You could say they are like brothers. The Galaxy Round even has a metal frame and a fake leather-textured-stitched back covering. The only difference is probably the Galaxy Round doesn’t have a Stylus Pen, and battery capacity is 1,000 mAh lesser.
The only new thing that the Samsung Galaxy Round has is the curve display and body, that is made possible thanks to the Super Flexible AMOLED display. I’m sure this is only the beginning of odd-shaped devices like this one. And it won’t be long, probably a couple of years from now and we will see a full blown flexible/bendable smartphone.
Note: Why did Sammy named it Galaxy ROUND, when it is not round at all? Literally it is curved. I think they should have called it Galaxy CURVE instead. Watch the Galaxy Round in action below.

What do you think? Is the Galaxy Round a great move / innovative idea? Or a gimmick / silly design and will probably fail if released worldwide?
