Samsung unveiled the world's first smartphone with a curved screen Wednesday.

The Galaxy Round has a slightly concave 5.7 inch,1080p Super AMOLED screen in a 7.9mm-thick case and it weighs154 grams.

According to Samsung, the phone offers a very comfortable grip in addition to a few new features. Roll Effect, for example, allows users to check data, time, missed calls and battery status when the home screen is off. Gravity Effect, another feature, creates a visual interaction with the screen when the phone is tilted.

Additionally the phone comes with a 2.3GHz quad-core processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage memory, a 13-megapixel rear camera (plus a 2-megapixel shooter on the front) and a 2,800mAh battery.

The Galaxy Round will be available in Korea on Thursday. Samsung has not yet provided details on the phone's price or when it will become available in other countries.
