(CBS) - In Business News, Samsung took the wraps off the world's first smartphone with a curved screen.

The new design is expected to improve comfort and convenience for users. The Galaxy Round has a 5.7-inch display and goes on sale today in Korea.

There's no word on price or when it will be available in other countries.

Rival LG announced this week that it would begin mass producing its own flexible curved screen phone that's expected to hit stores next year.



(CNN) - It's coming soon, the cardless ATM. 

So leave the debit card at home. All you'll need is an app on your phone.

Financial services giant FIS recently announced its new cardless ATMs. When using the app, you select how much money to withdraw. Then, when you're at the ATM, use the app to scan a code on the ATM screen, and money comes out. 

Right now, it's still in the testing phase.



(CBS) - Disney's paper stock certificates are heading to never never land.
