New Galaxy Round phablet screen is curved

2013_10_curved phoneNot long after hinting at introducing a smart device with a curved display, Samsung Electronics introduced the Galaxy Round. Like the Galaxy Gear smartwatch introduced last month at one of the world’s largest consumer fairs in Berlin, the smartphone with a curved display is the first of its kind.

The Galaxy Round is a variant of Samsung’s popular Galaxy Note “phablet.” Its curved display moves the tech world a step closer to wearable devices with curved and ultimately flexible screens.

The Galaxy Round’s 5.7-inch display has a slight curve on the vertical axis and weighs less than the Galaxy Note 3, allowing a more comfortable grip than flat-screen models, mobile carrier SK Telecom said in a statement.

Curved displays open up possibilities for bendable designs that could eventually transform the high-end smartphone market by allowing mobile and wearable gadgets to take new forms.
