Samsung Galaxy Round is now official, phone has October 10th release date in Korea

0. phoneArena 08 Oct 2013, 23:03 posted on

Tuesday night, Samsung introduced the first smartphone to come with a curved display; the Samsung Galaxy Round isn't traveling too far away as it will make its debut and launch in Korea on Thursday. The device will originally be offered in Luxury Brown but other colors will be available later. The Samsung Galaxy Round offers what is called the "roll effect" where the phone is tipped downward in the landscape mode and shows the time, missed calls and battery level...

Only problem i see is side view display looks dark, on the edge nearest you.

Look at the start of the video, before you push play at that dark display.

A lot of people said the same thing of a giant phone with a stylus. I will reserve judgement until it comes out.

LOL, I agree with you, I thought ppl that come to this site love and appreciate technology, but after this, I realized they are more into good looking gadgets than what the gadget can do. Because if you love and appreciate technology, you will see beyond the use of the new tech that has bn released. And you will realize the potential this curved screen has, instead of looking what it does now. If these companies had CEO or decision makers like most ppl here, we will be nowhere close to where we are today. Like when ppl thought Galaxy Note was a bad idea, look today. So sometimes someone has to come up with some innovation that ppl will start to look at and come up with useful ideas that will make our lives a bit easier. Samsung is one of those companies that releases gadget and let us the users and developers to come up with more uses. Hope I make sense.

Samsung teased up with the beautiful YOUM designed smartphones,,, thats what we want to see! Lately Samsung only brings out their innovations in tech when they're pushed by LG or another OEM, sigh.

What's special about this note 3 copy except a folded glass which itself isn't any achievement?

This is another RUSHED work from Samsung, they are afraid that if LG will release it first, they will be called a COPY again...

Exactly as I had predicted; Samsung never cares about the concept and use of the device, they just try to wow people with being the first presenting new technologies. I am pretty sure that flexible screens will become important in the future but this first iteration is just pointless.

The near future iterations will be based on this concept.
How do you expect results without taking the first step ?

That's like saying you want to be in grade 1 as soon as being born.

First step matters.

Its the insides that count. You can go build the best looking device in the world and put crappy parts in it and people like you would probably love that phone.

What's changed? its still a normal phone but with a curved display. If they could make a flexible body, then ill believe the flexible phone is real.

Useless! Samsung go use flexible screen in next Gear and it will look futuristic like what Nissan idea in NISMO but not in the phone.

Wow. Something new comes out and all they can say is that they don't like it. You haven't even held it or used it and you already know. This group probably saw the first flat screen and said the same thing. If you have no creativity whatsoever maybe avoid making a fool of yourself.

This phone is useless. Who gives a @#$5 if it's curved. Flexible is where it's at. Stop spamming the market Sammy.
