Earlier this month, there were reports of Samsung launching a smartphone with curved display. And today, the company launched the smartphone surprisingly in Korea.
In terms of the design, the device looks like a Galaxy Note 3 but with a prominent concave display. It is 7.9mm thick and flaunts a 5.7-inch (1920×1080 pixels) Super AMOLED display. Samsung has added a whole lot of software add-ons that take advantage of the curved display like ‘Roll Effect’ that lets users check the date, time and missed calls when the home screen is off and the ‘Gravity Effect’ which creates a sort of visualization when the device is tilted.
Additionally, the ‘Bounce UI’ lets users control the music player by pressing on the sides of the display to skip tracks and finally the ‘Side Mirror’ feature allows users to access their video or photo albums with a left or right tilt.
