The Samsung Galaxy Round was launched last month as the world’s first ever smartphone with a curved OLED panel. While the smartphone was promising and had all the makings of a true flagship, Samsung decided to limit its reach to South Korea which meant that users elsewhere weren’t able to get their hands on the smartphone.
A new report has now shed light on the actual sales of this smartphone and it’s nothing short of disappointing. According to the latest estimates, Samsung has only managed to sell over 10,000 units of the smartphone so far, which is poor for a smartphone of its caliber. But considering the limited availability and steep pricing, we can’t say this was unexpected. People are expecting more from the LG made G Flex smartphone which features a slightly different design and is substantially bigger at 6 inches. Although it sports a relatively sub-par 720p resolution, features like the Self Healing back cover make it a worthy rival to the Galaxy Round. The smartphone will arrive in the U.S. sometime next year, so people will be looking forward to that.
