Samsung has announced its Galaxy Round smartphone, which features a 5.7-inch curved OLED display. The Galaxy Round will launch on SK Telecom in South Korea, featuring a 5.7-inch 1920x1080-pixel curved OLED panel.

We don't know what to expect from the curved OLED display - other than it being curved of course - but Samsung is pushing something it is called "Round Interaction" which allows you to look at information like missed calls, battery life and more when you tilt it on a flat surface with the screen off. The South Korean giant also claims that you can switch between home screens, and it'll feel like one continuous transition.

 

The Galaxy Round weighs in at 154g, is just 7.9mm thick, includes an 2,800mAh battery and runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. It will be released in a "Luxury Brown" color - which doesn't sound too appealing at all - for around $1,103. At $1,103, it is quite expensive and I think it's going to scare most people away for now which might be the reason for a limited launch.
