The leak was just posted a couple of hours ago and it looks like it took the shortest leak-to-annoucement time: Samsung Galaxy Round has been announced, the phone which has a curved display from side-to-side. Apparently, for the moment, this is for Samsung’s home turf, and will be available on October 10 (tomorrow) in South Korea.
We’ve got a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display, curved, with a Full HD 1080p resolution — same as on the Note 3. Other specs are also common with the Note 3 (both inside, as well as stitched leather back on the outside), as the Galaxy Round packs a 2.3GHz quad-core processor, 3GB or RAM, 13MP camera, Android 4.3, and 2,800mAh battery.
Special software features seem to take advantage of the round display: the Roll Effect enables the user to check information — date, time, missed calls and battery — the Gravity Effect allows creating visual interaction with the screen by tilting the device, Bounce UX enables music control, and Side Mirror allows access to list of the album content with a left and right tilt.
Luxury Brown is the available color in Korea but more will be added soon. Check out a feature video below and, please do let us know what you think!
