LG unveiled all the details for its often leaked phone LG G Flex, curved screen smartphone on Monday (28/10/2013). Weighing in at 177 grams with a 6 inch curved OLED display, it’s powered by a Snapdragon 800 processor and 2GB of RAM, with a 13 megapixel camera housed above the two rear control buttons, which is now LG’s thing. In comparison to Samsung‘s Galaxy Round, the screen on the LG G Flex arcs from top to bottom, not side to side, which at least makes a little more sense to us, hopefully fitting in better to the curvature of the users’ face. We’re yet to handle either curved phone IRL just yet, however when we’ll be able to offer up a better perspective on how both devices actually feel.
Like LG’s recent G2, there’s high fidelity audio recording and playback, dual window app functionality and tap to wake on that substantial touch screen. There’s also special animations, depending on where and how you unlock the phone. The Korean press release is also reporting that there’s a self healing coating that can repair hairline scratches on the rear of the phone. LG speaks about it that they are repaired “within minutes”. Korean smartphones with the power to control the elements are, however still to be come. The LG G Flex will arrive on Korea’s three major carriers next month, but again there is no word on global roll out, hinting that the smartphone could well be a test model for the company. If LG successfully launches this smartphone it would be a revolution in the field of smartphone and they can make a tough blow on Sony Xperia Z Series and Samsung Galaxy Series.
