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.

      I must say, this is an innovation made by LG to cater our needs in a more convenient way. :)

    • Yong says:

      I think you’re generalizing too much. Different people = different needs.

      The self-healing technology itself is pretty extraordinary for a smartphone. That combined with the curved screen and the rear key makes quite a beast.

    • Luwki says:

      The vertical bend seems useful when you’re talking on the phone. In addition, it improves the whole viewing experience!

    • wew says:

      sorry mejo misleading ung comment ko im referring to the main characteristic of lg g flex which is the curved screen,im sure ung selfhealing technology makikita rin yan sa ibang models especially future LG phones =)

    galaxy nexus by samsung already had this kind of curved screen :)

    • setsuna says:

      Not quite…in the galaxy nexus, it is only the glass that is curved, the display panel however is still flat.

    • galaxynexus says:

      oh is that so, thanks for the info @setsuna :D

    • Marc Daniel says:

      LG is far different amidst other brands, they are providing the technology that is fitted perfectly for consumers.

    • Jell says:

      LG G Flex is totally the norm today. More flexible, more convenient, more fun!

    • silver says:

      the G-flex is curved because of its self-repair function.. check out other blogs for more info!

    • Todd says:

      Samsung bends horizontally while LG bends vertically.

      The vertical blends allows easier use of the mobile for phone calls. It also has, as what others say the “self-repair back coating. In addition, this one has implemented the rear key button from the G2 phone.

    I bought one 2 days ago from a sulit seller for P28,000. Hong Kong sourced.

    As your wardrobe changes with the seasons, so will the items of jewelry that you choose.
    Spring cleaning is such a huge task because you have actually spent so much
    time in the house all winter. The bezel setting offers a more contemporary look to this
    classic style.
