Firstly, the horizontally curved screen is 5.7 inch big and is a full HD Super AMOLED display. A quad-core 2.3 GHz processor powers the device alongside a solid 3GB RAM that supports swift gaming and browsing actions.

The Samsung Galaxy Round is a lot light weighing model in its category of high-end phones. The battery in the phone is not curved like the screen.

It uses a 2,800 mAh battery rather than the 3,200 mAh one found in the Note 3.

The physical design of the device includes the ability to view details by tilting and rocking the device. An user can simply control music by pressing down on one side while it rests on a table.
