Samsung Unveils First Curved Display Handset Samsung Galaxy Round

Samsung unveiled  first curved display device with  5.7 inches of curved or flexible display that supports Snapdragon 800 processor with 3gb of ram. The phone itself doesn’t fit in a phone category neither in a tablet category and it’s better to give it a phablet category like Galaxy Mega 6.3, Note 3  launched by Samsung.


Round  packs Super AMOLED flexible  display  that runs at 1080p resolution with 386 pixels per inch. 


Round is powered with mighty Snapdragon 800 processor with a 2.3 GHZ clock speed and 3gb of Ram, this is a best clock speed you can have in your mobile until now with 3gb of ram like Note 3. Round  have powerful Adreno 330 GPU same Gpu that we have on Note 3, LG G2 and Xperia Z Ultra to push all the power for gaming and graphics. Hardware is one of the strength in this mobile as it introduces you to most powerful Snapdragon 800 with over clock cpu speed and this is with 3gb of ram.


Despite the fact Round sports 5.7 inches of display the Round  is thinner and lighter than Note 3, measuring 151.1 x 79.6 and its 7.9mm thick and weighs just 154grams. Its easy to grip Round in comparison to  Note 3 due to its curved design and its fit easily in your hand as compared to note 3 for doing one hand operation. On the back of a device you will have a same leather textured removable plastic battery cover with fake stitching which looks good and give you some sort of premium feel.


Round ships  with Android 4.3 and runs Samsung Touchwiz with a same feature that we have on Note 3 and  S4, like air gesture, air view, smart scroll, smart stay and many motion sensors that we have on S4, Note 3. However, a downside of Round is absence of Spen that we have on Note 3.  

Internal Memory

There's 32GB of built-in storage, while a microSD slot will add upto 64GB if needed. 


Round packs 4G LTE-A  connectivity, HD Voice along with NFC, Bluetooth, Wifi, GPS, AGPS, Wifi Tethering and packs all other connectivity options that we have on S4.


Round is equipped with removable 2800 mAh battery which seems to me lower than the power of might 3200mah available on Note 3


Round has 13 MP camera at the back which is capble of recording 1080p and 4k videos from it and supports HDR for both stills and movies with Dual shot mode like S4 Camera with single flash. On the front of Round we have 2 Mega pixel camera similar to Xperia Z Ultra and LG G2. 

Final Verdict

To give my final verdict we are going to use a SWOT analysis below


Round packs a considerable beautiful 5.7 inches 1080p curved display which is so called flexible Amoled Display  with a superior design, better camera and strong processor.

One of the weaknesses I have found in Round  is its build quality for some of the users and unrelated Touchwiz  software features which people think slow down a device and doesn’t make any good use for them. Another weakness is its round shape which seems to me curved rather than a flexible display because you can not flex it.


3gb of ram is the biggest opportunity Samsung can avail by introducing a Snapdragon 800 processor in its first curved phone.


The biggest threat to Round is Lg Flex, but Lg flex supports 720p where as Round supports 1080p display.
