Samsung Galaxy Round

Samsung introduces the world's first smartphone with a curved glass, the Galaxy Round. 
In terms of specs, the Galaxy Round features a mammoth 5.7-inch Super AMOLED display, and weighs in at 154 grams with a waist line of 7.9mm. To deal with such a beastly screen size, the Galaxy Round will also include features like One-Hand Operation, letting a user put customizable controls on a specific, close corner of the display.  Users can also run multiple applications in the same window, or run simultaneous multiple instances of the same application if they so choose.  The phone will run Android 4.3 Jelly Bean on a 2.3GHz quad-core processor, complete with 32GB or 64GB of internal memory under the hood.  The Round will also sport a 13-megapixel rear-facing shooter and a 2MP front-facing for video chat, as well as a 2,800 mAh battery.
