After a number of rumour and speculations, it seems that Samsung is going to win against LG in a fight to be the first on the curved display phone market. Recently, Samsuang has officially announced the Galaxy Round, one of the first smartphones with a curved OLED display on the market.
It seems that Samsung Galaxy Round will be very performant which will make it very attractive for geeks. Announced specs are:
5.7-inch 1080p OLED curved display
2.3GHz Exynos quad-core processor
Android 4.3 Jelly Bean
The phone will cost around 1000$ on the US market.
It is noteworthy also because a while ago LG also announced their plans to release a smartphone with curved OLED display.
To be honest, I don't see what could make me buy such a smartphone. The curved display itself doesn't look exciting and I don't see what could be benefits of this feature in this specific model.
