Samsung’s flexible display smartphone launching this week as the Galaxy Round

Samsung Galaxy Round

Samsung’s flexible display smartphone has been in the works for quite some time now. The company has been competing with LG to bring the world’s first flexible display smartphone to the market. And with LG postponing the launch of its smartphone until November, Samsung is the clear front runner. It has now come to light that Samsung’s smartphone will launch later this week (as rumored), under the name¬†Galaxy Round.

Other hardware features of the smartphone will apparently resemble the Galaxy Note 3, including the processor and display resolution, so we know what to expect. As the smartphone will be manufactured in limited quantities for the time being, we don’t expect Samsung to launch it simultaneously in global markets. It is being said that the handset will break cover in Korea first, to test the waters somewhat. This also means that the pricing won’t be reasonable either. Although flexible displays are going to be cheaper to produce in comparison to regular glass made displays, the pricing could be beyond the common man in its early stages.
