Called the Galaxy Round, the Korean firm's new handset has similar specifications to its Note 3 device, but additionally has a 5.7-inch concave screen fixed to curved casing.
It's designed to fit in the palm of a hand more comfortably, but as Android expert Kellex from Droid Life exclaims: 'This is a Galaxy Note 3 with a curved display and a couple of extra gimmicky features. We still aren’t seeing a point.'
