Samsung has launched the Galaxy Round smartphone in Korea. This is the world's first smartphone with a curved display. The display is a 5.7-inch HD Super AMOLED flexible display. The phone is 7.9 mm thick and weighs 154 grams.
Samsung says the curved screen enables features like its Roll Effect, that enables users to check information, such as date, time and missed calls, even when the home screen is off. The video below shows how this feature works. Users can also interact with the phone and access certain features by tilting the phone.
No plans have yet been announced for launching the device outside of Korea.
