Samsung Electronics said it will release a smartphone with a curved display and a $1,000 price tag.

The Galaxy Round has a curved 5.7-inch screen using advanced display technology called organic light-emitting diode, or OLED, technology. The Korean company said such a curved screen smartphone is the first in the world.

Samsung said the curve will make it easier to grip. The high-end gizmo has some features that make use of the display’s curve, such as playing the next song in a music playlist by tilting the phone to the left or to the right.

The curved display is an initial step before handset makers develop smartphones with a flexible display that one day might be folded like a map, experts say.

The Galaxy Round will be released only in South Korea for now.
