The awkward looking Samsung Galaxy Round leaked earlier today and Samsung decided to make it official . It’s essentially like a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 that’s lost its stylus pen, and is….. well, bent (As in totally curved).
Under the hood, we’re looking at a very capable device. Notable specs from the Samsung Galaxy Round include:
- 5.7-inch 1080p OLED curved display
- 2.3GHz Exynos quad-core processor
- 3GB RAM
- 13MP camera
- 2,800mAh battery
- 7.9mm thick, 154g
- Android 4.3 Jelly Bean
So what separates the Galaxy Round from one of Samsung’s other “flat” offerings? Aside from giving the Korean manufacturer the pleasure of claiming “firsts”, Samsung has also tweaked their Touch Wiz software to feature a UI that is better suited for the Round. This is done in a variety of visual changes to make things appear “rounder” on the device, as well as featuring something Samsung is calling “Round Interactions”.
Tilting the phone while on a flat surface will allow users to quickly peak at the time and notifications on the device, something that sounds neat. Samsung has also added the “Round Interactions” into their other apps like music and photo apps, although it’s unclear how it will be implemented.
Two words... Nawa ooooo..
