Comparison with Samsung Galaxy Round
Samsung had launched the Galaxy Round, earlier this month. It’s a variant of its Galaxy Note 3 smartphone, with a display that curves side-to-side (horizontally). The phone sports a 5.7-inch OLED full-HD display and is powered by a 2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and 3GB RAM. It sports a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel front facing camera. The phone runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. It comes with a 2800mAh battery and offers LTE-A high-speed 4G connectivity. Comparing it with the newly announced LG G Flex, LG has an edge when it comes to screen size and battery but otherwise Samsung takes the lead. The real difference can be made when we have both of these smartphones kept next to each other. Let’s see what they have in bag for the Indian public.
