    » Samsung debuts smartphone with curved display, but only for Korea

    By Michael

    Breaking away from the
    flat screens found in so many smartphones, Samsung is releasing its Galaxy
    Round handset with a curved display.

    The new Android phone
    will only be released in South Korea on Thursday, but is the world’s first to
    use the curved screen technology, Samsung said Wednesday. The Galaxy Round
    has a slight arch in its design and is built with a 5.7-inch full HD
    screen.

    To take advantage of the phone’s curved display,
    Samsung has included special software features for the way content is shown
    on the device. For instance, when tilted on its side on a table, the phone’s
    Roll
    Effect
    ” will automatically show information like the date and time,
    without the need to press the power button.

    Users can also
    move through music tracks played on the phone, or access pictures and video
    content by simply touching or tilting either the phone’s right or left side.
    In addition, Samsung claimed in a blog
    post
    the phone’s curved frame fits comfortably in the
    hand.
