Samsung launched the world's first smartphone with a curved display screen on Thursday, as the electronics giant seeks to maintain its lead in the increasingly saturated market.

Galaxy Round - a 5.7-inch concave handset that fits the curve of a user's palm - has hit stores in South Korea but Samsung did not say when the new phone would be available globally.

Curved screens - billed as lighter and thinner than current display panels - are at a nascent stage in display technology, which is shifting towards flexible panels that are bendable or can even be rolled or folded.
