It seems that LGhas lost the race for the first smartphone with a curved display to be released, since the Samsung Galaxy Round has been unveiled earlier today and will become available in South Korea starting tomorrow. Unfortunately, the handset will not arrive on any other market for the time being.
Here are the technical specs of the Galaxy Round, most of them mentioned by rumors for quite a while now:
Memory/Storage: 3 GB RAM; 32 GB ROM and microSD support for up to 64 GB
Display: 5.7-inch Full HD Super Flexible AMOLED
Connectivity: WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n and WiFi Direct, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, GPS, USB 3.0
Operating system: Android 4.3 Jelly Bean
Weight: 5.43 ounces
Battery: 2,800 mAh
The Samsung Galaxy Round also provides Samsung KNOX software and hardware security features, making it an attractive solution for business and enterprise clients. Unfortunately, the handset has a price of over $1,000 and will be released in a limited edition for South Korea. Availability and pricing for the rest of the world are still unknown, as mentioned earlier.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
