When the Samsung Galaxy Round was announced last week amidst much hype and speculation, it was reported that the smartphone will be available only in South Korea, which raised some suspicion regarding Samsung’s plans for the global arena. Now there’s clarification coming through about that and we must agree it’s not good news. Apparently, the Galaxy Round is being manufactured in limited quantities even within South Korea, which means that this is merely an experimental prototype device, killing all the possibility of a global launch.
This also explains why Samsung decided to price the smartphone incredibly high. However, we’re still hopeful that Samsung will eventually launch a curved display smartphone meant for global customers with the Galaxy Round receiving decent popularity already. Functionality is not an issue at all as Samsung has demonstrated in its series of videos, but Samsung will want to make absolutely sure that the market is ready for such smartphones. The Galaxy Round packs an almost identical specs sheet compared to the Galaxy Note 3 but doesn’t have an S-Pen stylus.
