The Galaxy round features a full HD Super AMOLED flexible display and has a faux leather back just like the Galaxy Note 3. It shares quite a bit of features with the Galaxy Note 3. Apart from the faux leather back there is also a USB 3.0 charging port available as had been previously revealed in the leaked images. The Galaxy Round also has a 5.7 inch display like the Note 3 only that this one is flexible.

The Galaxy Round is 7.9 mm thick and weighs in at 154g.

Other specs include:

  • It runs Android 4.3
  • 13 megapixel camera
  • 3 GB RAM
  • 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor

It has several notable features like:

  • Roll Effect – enables the user to check information such as the date, time, missed calls and battery easily when home screen is off.
  • Gravity Effect – for creating visual interaction with the screen by tilting the device.
  • Bounce UX – enables users to control their music. When the device’s display is off while the music player is running, a short press to the left of the device will play the previous track while a short press to the right will play the next track
  • Side Mirror – feature that enables users to gain access to list of the album content with a left and right tilt.
  • One-Hand Operation feature to bring a user’s most desired controls closer to a preferred side of the screen
