Samsung's recently launched Galaxy Round smartphone featuring curved display is under the limelight as an unboxing video of the new smartphone has now surfaced online. The video shows the contents which are to arrive in the box.
The Samsung Galaxy Round pack includes the following contents:
-Samsung Galaxy Round handset
-Battery charging pod
-Two batteries along with the case
-microUSB cable (USB 3.0 capable)
-Headphones along with an extra ear buds
The video talks about the leather casing at the rear of the handset, which looks quite similar to that of Samsung Galaxy Note 3. It also shows a long and thin battery for the handset which stretches from the device's rear camera till the speakers placed far below. The video raises question on why people should buy Galaxy Round when Galaxy Note 3 has almost the same specifications and functions and is cheaper.
In related news, it has also been revealed that the Korean tech firm is working on the magnetic resonance wireless charging technology, which will arrive in their smartphones starting mid-2014. After Nokia introduced wireless charging in its Lumia 920 model in 2012, Samsung and Google have been working on a similar technology to make a smartphone users' lives easier.
A wireless charging method, till now, has been only seen through the devices kept on the charging pads, which has its own inconveniences. However, Samsung is said to be working on magnetic resonance wireless charging which will eliminate the use of charging pads. This means a user can charge his or her device while on the move within the charging range.
Sam Mobile explains resonance wireless charging as a method which uses the magnetic induction principle of charging, as used these days, but allows the transfer of power between the two devices over longer distances, eliminating the need of the two devices to stay in contact with each other.
The technology that Samsung is working on, is done in collaboration with PowerbyProxi, a New Zealand firm.
