LG announced its first curved-screen smartphone (the G Flex) this morning in Korea, and surprise, surprise it just so happens that the first advert for the Galaxy Round, Samsungâ€™s curvaceously-designed smartphone, hit the Internet hours later.
The ad â€” first spotted by Engadget â€” is light on product details. It instead uses a range of curved things (including a babyâ€™s hand, an egg and aÂ Matryoshka doll)Â to suggest that navigating a curved screen is an entirely natural processâ€¦ and that, by assumption, the Galaxy Round isnâ€™t just a weirdly-shaped Galaxy Note 3.
Rumor has it that the Galaxy Round will not get an international release, so itâ€™s not surprising that the advert is in Korean.Â By contrast, it seems that LGâ€™s phone might make it out of Korea, going on the fact that a leak last week emanated from ArgentinaÂ â€“ we understand Argentina isÂ just one country where the company had seeded devices with local operators and retailers to drum up interest.
