Aside from the Nexus 5 hype, curved screens are the next big thing to tickle our Smartphone taste buds.
Companies like Samsung and LG are one the forefront in this category, and each have their own idea on how to incorporate a somewhat flexible LCD screen to a device and that it will not look like an old wallet. On their part, LG expressed their intent a week back but was overtaken by Samsung as they recently revealed the Galaxy Round.
Yes, the OLED technology of Samsung, paired with the best of their acclaimed insides comes together in a 5.7-inch phablet with a flexible 1080p LCD display and a Note 3-esque 3GB RAM, 13 megapixel main clicker enclosed in a sweet and sexy 7.9mm curved chassis. It may look (or feel) like the Note 3 (minus the curve), but the Round, as its name suggests has this “roll effect” as demonstrated on the video. Not exactly the thing you have in mind, but it’s a breath of fresh air, if you ask me.
As per the news, the Galaxy Round will, as of the moment be available ONLY in South Korea for about P44,000. International release were not mentioned YET by Samsung.
