What's under the hood on Samsung's latest big, curved phone?
The latest boundary-pushing form factor coming out of Samsung is the Galaxy Round, a phone with a display that is notably curved on the vertical axis. With a curve that is much more pronounced and technologically impressive than previous "curved" phones, Samsung is definitely taking things to a new level.
Under the hood the story is much the same as what we've seen on the recently announced Galaxy Note 3, however, and that's not a bad thing. You'll find the same screen resolution and internal specs that are nearly identical, with the tradeoff for that curved display being a lack of S Pen functionality.
Hit the break for a full list of internal specifications — note that some parts may change when the device comes to other markets outside of the initial launch in Korea.
