Posted by Stanislav Furman on October 11, 2013

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
3GB RAM
13MP camera
2,800mAh battery
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.
