Samsung Curved Phone Revealed as Galaxy Round

by Sean P. Aune | October 8, 2013October 8, 2013 8:09 pm PDT

Samsung has pulled back the curtain on its curved phone and you can now call it the Galaxy Round.

A few leaked photos showed up earlier today, and now the Galaxy Round is officially out there, but it appears it will be staying only in South Korea at this time.

The curved Super AMOLED display will measure in at 5.7-inches and will bring some new functionality that will take advantage of the screen to give it some unique uses. The Roll Effect will allow you to check your display for things such as notifications, date, time and more by just rolling the phone towards you while its resting on its back. The phone will also make use of those raised sides when doing things such as listening to music. A short press to the left of the device will play the previous track while a short press to the right will play the next track.

You can check out the full specs below, and the video below will demonstrate the Roll Effect. The Galaxy Round will launch in Korea immediately in Luxury Brown with more colors to be announced at a later date.
