Is a curved display the latest must-have smartphone feature or will it fade out into obscurity like 3D screens on smartphones?

The 5.7" full HD Super Flexible AMOLED is curved inwards from the left and right edges, helping the Round fit the contours of your hand better.

Beneath the curvy exterior resides the quickest SoC on the mobile CPU block – Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor running at 2.3 GHz per core.

Quick is the name of the Round’s connectivity game due to LTE (4G) connectivity, Wi-Fi 802.11ac and Bluetooth 4.0 being onboard.

The Galaxy Round offers 32 GB worth of internal storage, which you can boost by another 64 GB via the microSD memory card slot.

Multitasking should not result in any low-memory issues thanks to a whopping 3 GB worth of RAM.

Another curve ball

Samsung Electronics is not the only firm with round display ambitions, as its Korean neighbor LG will reportedly release its own smartphone with a curved display dubbed the LG G Flex. Although specs are not available yet, the tech rumor mill is predicting a 6" 1080p display that is curved from top to bottom, rather than side to side like the Galaxy Round’s screen.
