- Samsung (SSNLF.PK) has launched the Galaxy Round, the world's first mobile phone with a curved display.
- The handset is more of a "symbolic product," says analyst Nam Dae-jong, as it doesn't have many new unique features, other than its shape. However, he does see the phone as a "step forward for having unbreakable gadgets and flexible devices eventually."
- The Round's display is 5.7", and it will enable users to more easily check information such as missed calls when the screen is off.
- Samsung intends to initially launch the Round in South Korea, although there's no word of its plans for other countries.
