Samsung has taken the wrapper off its rumored smartphone with a curved OLED display. The Galaxy Round, which will launch on SK Telecom in South Korea, has a 5.7-inch 1080p screen the same size as seen on the company’s Galaxy Note 3, but there’s a difference – it curves on the vertical axis in a similar fashion to some of Samsung’s OLED TVs.
Technologically interesting, but otherwise, I fail to see the point. The screen itself is probably more resilient than traditional ones, but since I’m assuming it has a glass cover, that aspect becomes moot. Also, it just looks weird.
Then again, everyone doubted the Note – now it’s a legitimate category and the Note series alone sold more than 40 million devices, so what do I know.
