Samsung GALAXY Round

Samsung Galaxy Round finds an ally in DisplayMate

If Samsung and LG are to be believed, the next smartphone battleground will be around flexible or curved displays in hand-sized proportions. But for now, it all sounds too much like a gimmick. That, however, may not be the case, at least based on some hands-on experiments done by DisplayMate Technologies, a company that specializes in display calibration, optimization, and consultancy.

Samsung Galaxy Round tipped as publicly available prototype

Following rumors of a Samsung Galaxy device with curved display, there was an official announcement for the Galaxy Round. The handset has what Samsung refers to as a 'roll effect' which basically means the handset can be tilted to the side. The unique aspect here, instead of simply rolling back and forth, when you roll the handset the display will activate. But while this sounds like a neat feature, it may be one not seen by many.
