We spoke of LG’s plans to launch a flexible display smartphone a couple of days ago, and now we’re getting more information on this smartphone. The company’s first curved display smartphone will allegedly be known as the LG Z, with launch expected to commence later this month as previously rumored. This smartphone will reportedly come with a concave curved display meaning it will be slightly different from the Samsung offering, which is rumored to feature a curved edge design.
The leak also sheds light on Samsung’s rival offering which will apparently launch as early as next week as a new variant of the already available Galaxy Note 3 phablet. The CEO of Samsung Electronics gave out this information in an investor’s meet while discussing the Q3 2013 financial results. This smartphone could be known as the Galaxy Note 3 Active according to past rumors. While this is certainly good news for fans of the technology, Samsung and LG aren’t able to mass produce these display panels at the moment, so don’t be surprised if these handsets are sold in limited quantities and with a premium price tag.
