LG G Flex with curved screen officially announced
LG has finally unveiled their first smartphone to feature a 6-inch curved display and powered by a Snapdragon 800 CPU – the LG G Flex.
Like its Korean rival, the Samsung Galaxy Round, the G Flex also sports a curved OLED screen that is 6-inches across. However, it only has 720p resolution or 244ppi and is curved at the Y-axis. Although the Flex’s pixels aren’t as dense as the Round’s, the way LG curved the display makes it great for watching movies in landscape.
The G Flex also features the rear volume controls and power/lock button of the G2, a Snapdragon 800 CPU clocked at 2.26GHz, 2GB of RAM, 13 megapixel camera, and a 3,500mAh battery. All of that are housed in a body that is 177g in weight and is 8.7mm at its thickest.
Now for the most exciting part, LG mentioned that they added a “self-healing” technology on the G Flex which is a special protective film placed on the back of the device. The company claims that it can heal minor scratches on the phone within minutes.
No information yet on pricing and international availability but it will be available first in South Korea starting next month.
