Samsung Galaxy Round now available for pre-order from Mobicity for $1,299.95

Galaxy Round - Mobicity
If the vertically curved Samsung Galaxy Round caught your eye when it was announced, then Mobicity are offering you the chance to own this intriguingly designed phone.

The Samsung Galaxy Round is now available for pre-order from Mobicity for the price of $1,299.95 exGST, with a total price of $1,481.95 including GST($130) and Customs and Courier GST Processing Fee($52). The device is available in Black only – surprising as it was announced only in Luxury Brown – and is expected to arrive into the Mobicity warehouses next month.

The Galaxy Round is LTE-A compatible and will work with all 4G networks in Australia on the 1800MHz frequency(Sorry Optus 4G Plus users) as well as all the 3G operators networks in Australia.

Galaxy Round(GT-I910S) Specs:

  • 5.7″ FullHD(1920×1080) Super AMOLED Screen
  • 2.3GHz Quad-Core Krait MSM 8974 SoC
  • 3GB RAM
  • 32GB On-board storage with microSD Card Slot(Up to 64GB)
  • 13MP Rear Camera with AF and 2MP Front-facing camera
  • Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, GPS, USB 3.0 support, MHL
  • Android 4.3
  • 2,800mAh Battery
  • 151.1×79.6×7.9mm @ 154grams

It’s an intriguing phone design and one that’s been shown off by Samsung as what’s possible with curved screen. Demos of the device show that if laid on a desk in landscape, tipping the phone up using the rounded back will allow you to see notifications splashed up on the screen.

If you’re in the market to spend nearly $1500 on a device that seems to be a proof of concept for curved screen technology then head over to the Mobicity Website.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

Only an idiot would be stupid enough to pay this much for a phone outright.

Some of Mobicity’s initial prices for devices makes me wonder if they are’t losing the plot at times.

Or they fancy the device. Just Because you don’t like it doesn’t mean someone else has to!
