updated 10:15 pm EDT, Tue October 8, 2013

New phone only available in South Korea, no expected US availability

Confirming earlier rumors, carrier SK Telecom and manufacturer Samsung have officially announced a curved screen smartphone for the South Korean market. The new Galaxy Round has a very slight front-glass curve on its 5.7-inch screen, and runs a custom variant of Android with what Samsung calls "interface tweaks" to take advantage of the unique front glass.

The device's screen is a 1080p OLED display, in a case with a minimum thickness of 7.9mm (0.3 inches). The phone weighs approximately 154 grams (5.4 ounces). A 2800mAh battery provides power to the LTE-A radio and the quad-core MSM 8974 2.3GHz processor. The phone has a 802.11ac chipset and 32GB of storage, expandable with a MicroSD card. The device will be available in silver or brown.

The new Round retails for 1,089,000 won ($1,016). The device is not expected to see release in the US.
