Smartphone major Samsung has taken the first step in the direction of futuristic display technology for mobility and launched its Galaxy Round phablet with flexible display. Many companies have been flirting with this technology but are yet to launch it for the public and this is where Samsung has taken the first-mover initiative with Galaxy Round.
