LG showcases G Flex’s prowess
LG G Flex is currently one of the pioneers in curved smartphones. So, what makes it standout from the competition or specifically the Samsung Galaxy Round? LG showcased them just in time before the launch.
G Flex’s 6″ 720p P-OLED display is curved on the y-axis oppose to Samsung Galaxy Round. That makes the device more usable in both landscape and portrait orientation. Thus, it mimics a giant silver screen like IMAX. From what it seems, it offers a better viewing experience. There’s a unique dynamic wallpaper too that takes advantage when it portrait.
From the screen to body. LG G Flex offers a cool (somewhat skeptical) self-healing back-cover that “heals” scratches off. It might be too good to be true but basing from the video by LG, it actually works! Not like Wolverine though, but a 3-minute healing time is better than seeing those nasty scratches forever.
LG also announced some accessories to go with their new flexing phone. The familiar Quick Window flip cover that is virtually the same as G2’s except for the curve, a “vest” for protecting the flex of the phone and a rather handy 16GB OTG USB that has a full size and a micro port for easy transfer. No news on availability and pricing for the accessories yet.
LG will be releasing the G Flex tomorrow, November 12 exclusively in South Korea. International release might soon be on the way. Perhaps they are just waiting for the world to be ready for it.
