    Samsung Launch Curved Screen Smartphone

    BBC News - Samsung launches smartphone with curved display screen

    Will only available in South Korea only but I doubt it will be long until curved screen smartphones area available here.

    Not sure if I'm missing something, but why a curved screen? What;s the benefits to a standard flat display?

    Likewise, and as with the Galaxy Gear, I am wondering: why?

    It feels like Samsung is just throwing everything at the market and seeing what sticks at the moment.

    LG are bringing out a curved screen where the screen curves round the edges of the phone. This kind of gives you a bigger screen size on a small phone but not sure how the touch thing will work seeing as you need to hold the phone which means you would be touching the touch screen.

    I suppose it would also fit your hand better?

    It's so when you put it in your back pocket it fits your bum so doesn't break when you sit down.

    The Galaxy Round has a curve of just 2.54 mm (0.10"). I can't see that making much of a difference if you sit on it, although I suppose it depends on how big your bum is?

    Not that many people want a curved phone either...

    Samsung's curved Galaxy Round smartphone fails to sell « The Inquirer

    Sales of the Samsung Galaxy Round have been lower than anyone expected, with Korean news site Daum.net reporting sales of under 10,000.
