Here are 6 smartphones that are unique in design but they do exist. Do take a look and share your thoughts in the comment box below.
Announced in October 2013, the Samsung Galaxy Round was the world's first smartphone to sport a curved display (5.7 inches, 1080 x 1920 pixels). The Galaxy Round is basically a curved version of the Galaxy Note 3, as the two handsets share many of their features: Snapdragon 800 processor, 3 GB of RAM, 16 MP rear camera, faux leather on the back, and so on. Samsung didn't produce too many Galaxy Round units.
after Samsung unveiled the Galaxy Round, LG announced its own curved display smartphone: the G Flex. Unlike Samsung's device, the G Flex is curved from top to bottom, thus providing a totally different feel. Also unlike the Galaxy Round, the G Flex comes with a self-healing back cover, and is flexible (if you flatten it, it will regain its initial shape once you let it go). The handset is very large, as its screen is a 6-inch one with 720 x 1280 pixels. Other features include a Snapdragon 800 CPU, 2 GB of RAM, 13 MP rear camera, and a 3500 mAh battery.
BlackBerry revealed the Passport in early 2014, though it didn't launch it until September. The Passport is definitely a rare sight to behold, not just compared to the all-touch smartphones of today, but also to other BlackBerries. The handset is really shaped like a passport, thus being much wider than regular smartphones. It has a square 4.5-inch touchscreen display with 1440 x 1440 pixels, and a 3-row hardware QWERTY keyboard below it (this is touch sensitive, so it can be used as a touchpad).
Announced in September last year, at the same time with the Galaxy Note 4, the Galaxy Note Edge is Samsung's second smartphone to offer a curved display. But the approach is different here from what Samsung did with the Galaxy Round. This time, the South Korean company created a display that's curved on just one side, covering the right edge of the handset. The curved part of the screen doubles as a sidebar that can show notifications, app shortcuts, and other things. Other than that, the Note Edge is almost identical, specs-wise, to the Note 4.
The AKA itself is just a regular mid-range Android smartphone, but the unique thing about it is that LG paired it with special cases that give it personality. When in use, these cases leave the upper side of the phone's display uncovered, so the UI can show animated eyes - there's a different character corresponding to each case color. The LG AKA was released late last year in South Korea, and it's now being introduced in other select markets around the world.
Obviously, the Galaxy S6 edge couldn't have been left out of our list. The s6 edge brings symmetry to the Note Edge concept by sporting a screen that's curved on both sides (though the curves aren't as prominent as on the Note Edge). Similar to the regular Galaxy S6, the S6 edge is a beast when it comes to specs, offering a 5.1-inch Quad HD screen, octa-core Exynos 7420 processor, 3 GB of RAM, and 32 GB / 64 GB / 128 GB of storage space. The Galaxy S6 edge hasn't been released yet, but it will be launched around the world starting April 10.
