Samsung's Galaxy Round, pictured, has a 5.7-inch curved display fixed to a concave casing. It's 7.9mm thick, weighs 154g, and has a 13MP camera. The handset is on sale in South Korea through mobile operator SK Telecom and costs 109 million won (£632)


Samsung's Galaxy Round is not technically flexible because it can't bend or change shape, but it is said to be the world's first smartphone to have a curved design, pictured. Samsung claims this makes it more comfortable to hold than other phones

Not one to be outdone by a rival, Samsung has unveiled a new curved handset just days after LG declared it was working on flexible displays for smartphones.
Called the Galaxy Round, the Korean firm's new handset has similar specifications to its Note 3 device, but additionally has a 5.7-inch concave screen fixed to curved casing.
It's designed to fit in the palm of a hand more comfortably, but as Android expert Kellex from Droid Life exclaims: 'This is a Galaxy Note 3 with a curved display and a couple of extra gimmicky features. We still aren’t seeing a point.'

Other features of the Galaxy Round that take advantage of the curved display include what's dubbed Roll Effect. This lets users roll the phone towards them to see the date, time, missed calls and battery life without pressing the power button or activating the home screen
