Galaxy Round TV ad shows us plenty of… round things

Samsung has released a new TV ad for the Galaxy Round, promoting its first flexible display smartphone.
October 27, 2013

The Galaxy Round is the first flexible display smartphone in the world, and Samsung has released a new TV ad to highlight its main feature, the curved screen.

In the 30-second video above, Samsung insists on plenty of things that have a round shape/surface, and therefore easier or better to handle – or at least that appears to be the message.

However, the Galaxy Round is just a concept phone, and Samsung is yet to prove that we actually need a flexible display smartphone in our life.

As you can see from the TV ad, the Galaxy Round is coming to SK Telecom in South Korea, and it may be quite a while until we see flexible display smartphones in other markets.

In fact, LG has also made its G Flex flexible display handset official, and the phone will only be available in South Korea at first. For what it’s worth, LG is also yet to convince us that flexible displays are a must have technology in today’s phones, but we’re certainly looking forward to seeing where it all goes.

What about you? Are you buying a Galaxy Round or LG G Flex the first chance you get?
