Samsung Galaxy Round: First Smartlet With Curved Display

The Galaxy round has the specs of the grade 3, but a curved screen. The offers but far fewer benefits than initially expected.

If you think back to the first Samsungprototypes of curved and flexible Smartphone screens, associations such as Lateral display ads, Smartphone table clocks and aufroll – or fold-out display come up quickly.

Barren special features

Also can be among others, listening to music, if the device on the back with an inclination to the right, the next control track, goes to the left of previous track I personally hope that that is really not about what the Galaxy round of specials thanks to its special construction has to offer, because quite frankly, quite off the stool the Smartlet or the gimmicks not skin me.

High-end technology

The Galaxy round was announced today in Korea, on the corporate blog SamsungTomorrow was to read a message with photos of the good piece, there was more info on News.mt.co.kr. The known specs for you even in fast forward: 5.7 “-FullHD SuperAMOLED screen (1,920 x 1. ppi 080p, 387), 2.3 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S800 Quad core processor, 3 GB RAM, 32 GB ROM, Android 4.3 jelly bean, 2 MP front – and 13 MP back camera, 2,800 mAh battery, LTE- A, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, 151.1 x 79.6 x 7.9 mm, 154 grams, leatherette back.”
