Samsung Galaxy Round announced with a 5.7-inch display that curves vertically

And the race for flexible smartphones has finally kicked in, with Samsung announcing its own smartphone called the Galaxy Round. It's worth noting that LG drew the first strike a couple of days ago when it showcased its flexible OLED display. But Samsung's upping the ante clearly this time around by revealing an actual phone, shutting down naysayers who claim that such technology isn't possible.

The Samsung Galaxy Round will feature a 5.7-inch 1080p screen similar to its Galaxy Note 3. Applying its expertise in display technology, Samsung says that the Galaxy Round uses a Full HD Super AMOLED display that is curved vertically. Yes, it's somewhat similar to the company's OLED TVs in the market. Tipping the scales at 154g and with 7.9mm thickness, the phone boasts a nifty features called "Roll Effect" which allows users to check for messages, time, and missed calls, even when it is turned off.

There's even a "Gravity Effect" which proffers notifications each time it is tilted (check out the video below to see how it works). Samsung's also boasting about the "Side Mirror" feature that will allow users to check for content with just a left and right tilt. The Samsung Galaxy Round is  a true innovation and will be available tomorrow via SK Telecom, but will it really bend?
