The Samsung Galaxy Round was made official recently, the device will only be available in South Korea, and the handset will retail for the equivalent of $1,000.
According to a recent report, Samsung see the Galaxy Round as a prototype device, that will see limited production and will only be available in limited quantities in South Korea.
This would explain why Samsung has decided to sell the device in South Korea only, and has also said that it has no plans to launch the handset in the US and Europe as Yet.
Still paying $1,000 for a prototype device, which Samsung are basically testing in the market seems a high price, the handset is one of the first smartphones to launch with a curved display.
The Samsung Galaxy Round features a 5.7 inch display that is curved horizontally from left to right, the display is a flexible Super AMOLED display that has a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.
The Galaxy Round is powered by a quad core 2.3GHz processor and also features 3GB of RAM, the device also comes with a 13 megapixel camera.
As the device is apparently a prototype handset that Samsung is testing the market with, this would mean that they may have other flexible display smartphones in the works that we may see in the US and Europe at a later date.
