Galaxy Round: World's First Curved Phone Will Soon Hit The Shelves

At CES 2014 Samsung unveils its curved screen smartphone. The handset is called Galaxy Round and features a flexible 5.7-inch high definition display.

By curving from side to side the device will be more comfortable to hold, according to Samsung. Along with a bendable screen, the large handset features a 720P OLED display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 mobile processor, 2 GB of RAM and a 13 MP camera.

It will also allow users to check the information such as the date, time, battery life and missed calls more easily while the home screen is off. In beating rivals to launch the first curved screen phone, Samsung – the world's bestselling smartphone maker – will hope to establish a foothold in a market that is set to boom over the coming years.

Earlier this week LG announced it will start mass producing flexible screens and expects to unveil a curved smartphone early next year. The global flexible display industry is predicted to grow rapidly in the next few years. Research firm IHS Display estimates the market will be worth $1.5 billion (£900 million) by 2016 and more than $10 billion by 2019.

Bendable displays could revolutionise the high-end smartphone market by making foldable designs possible as well as helping create an "unbreakable" screen thanks to its plastic base.
