The LG G Flex is what has been announced lately and is the answer to the Samsung Galaxy Round. The South Korean manufacturer has decided to officially present its first model with a curved OLED screen of 6 inches, which brings a resolution of 1280 × 720 pixels.
However, unlike Samsung’s model, the LG G Flex brings “curvature” along the horizontal axis, which, according to people from LG, should enable a better ergonomic shape of the device. This is primarily important during longer conversations. At the same time, this shape of the screen and phone brings a better atmosphere when watching videos.
However, the LG G Flex will not be just a phone with an unusual shape. This smartphone will also have a “self-healing” option. More precisely, its background is made of a special material that quickly removes minor scratches from the surface.
LG G Flex specification
When it comes to specification, the LG G Flex will have a powerful quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor with a clock speed of 2.2 GHz and a generous 3500mAh battery, which is also curved. There are also 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal memory + microSD slot, NFC, and LTE connections.
There is a 13MP camera on the back, and just below it is a volume control button, just like on the LG G2. A 2.1MP camera is located on the front. At the same time, this phone will be able to record high-resolution video.
LG G Flex software
As this phone does not represent an average in any sense, it is clear that the software must follow the current scene. The LG G Flex runs on a 4.2.2 Jelly Bean version of the Android platform with its own user interface. Interestingly, but also expected, the LG G Flex also has some special software solutions.
One of them is the Swing Lockscreen, which will “curve” the background image of the screen and give a special effect when you touch it depending on the position of the finger on the screen itself. Also, the screen is able to be divided into two parts (Dual Window), and there are Guest Mode and KnockON options with the LG G2 premium model.
LG G Flex for sale
The LG G Flex is expected to go on sale in the next few months. According to an already seen scenario, the LG with a curved screen will appear first in Korea, while the rest of the world will have to wait a bit. For now, there are no specific announcements when and where the LG G Flex first arrives.
