True to its word earlier this month, Samsung has taken the wraps off its first curved OLED display smartphone, the Galaxy Round.
Announced on Tuesday, the 5.7-inch display device is similar in design and size to the recently launched Galaxy Note 3, though instead of lying flat on a table, Samsung's curved OLED display technology means the Galaxy Round can roll much like a rocking chair.
At 7.9mm thick and weighing 154g, the Galaxy Round is also slightly thinner than the Note 3, at 8.3mm thick and 168g in weight.
The roll effect
One feature made possible by the curve is what Samsung calls the roll effect, which lets the user check things like battery levels, the time, and missed calls by simply tilting the device while it's lying on a flat surface. When the device is rocked, the information will appear on the screen (shown above), and then disappear once it lies flat again.
