Samsung's curved-display phone: Features, video and pictures

Samsung has launched the Galaxy Round, the world’s first curved-display phone, to much fanfare.

But as the phone is initially being launched only in Korea, you’ll have to wait a little longer to get your hands on it.

Until then, check out the features of the phone to help you make up your mind:

1. Roll effect

The USP of the phone is its “roll effect” feature which lets users check information such as the date, time, battery and missed called when the screen is off. How does that work? Check out the video below:

2. Gravity Effect

The gravity effect creates “visual interaction” with the screen by tilting the device.

3. Controlling music when the screen is off

The phone’s Bounce UX feature enables users to control their music. When the display is off, but the music player is still running, a short press to the left of the device will play the previous track while a short press to the right will play the next track.
