After a flood of rumors, Samsung has unveiled the Galaxy Round: the world’s first smartphone to eschew a flat display in favor of a horizontal concave curve. Running Android 4.3 with its own proprietary Touch Wiz interface, the Galaxy Round comes powered by a 2.3GHz MSM 8974 quad-core processor – with 32GB of internal storage and 3MB of RAM – and sports a 5.7″ 1080p HD display and weighs in at just 5.4 ounces with a slim 0.3″ thick profile. Like the S4 and Note 3, the Galaxy Round features a 13MP camera with autofocus and flash in addition to a 2MP forward-facing camera. Highlighted by the design are brand new “roll” and “gravity” effects that expand gesturing by allowing users to access glance and music-centric screens with a rock of the device. Samsung’s Galaxy Round is set to first launch in Korea before making its way to additional markets.
