Just in case you wanted a phone that was shaped like a Pringles chip
A mere handful of hours after press images of a purported curved device from Samsung leaked out, the manufacturer has released initial details on the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Round. The device packs a 5.7-inch display just like the Galaxy Note 3, but this one has a not-so-subtle curve to the entire device that distinguishes it from other “flat” phones.
Samsung says that it has also developed new software experiences to take advantage of the curved design such as tilting the phone while it’s sitting on a table to check notifications, battery life and the time. Throughout the interface Samsung is working to make the software feel more at home on a curved display, offering tilt-based interfaces for some apps.
Beyond that wacky curved form factor, the Galaxy Round’s screen is 1080p resolution and is powered by a 2.3GHz quad-core processor paired with 3GB of RAM and a 2800mAh battery. We’re also looking at a 13MP camera and the same Android 4.3 software experience you know from other Samsung devices.
