The LG G Flex is now officially rolling out worldwide according to a press release issued by the company. The smartphone was announced in South Korea in late October and LG promised to launch it in global markets including the U.S. But Americans might have to wait a bit to get the smartphone officially.
First of the countries to get the smartphone in this global rollout will be Singapore and Hong Kong on December 8th and 13th respectively, followed by neighboring Asian countries. Although LG hasn’t specified elease dates for the rest of the world, it has briefly mentioned that the smartphone will start landing in Europe by the end of January. Good news indeed.
We have already seen American carrier variants of the LG G Flex visiting the FCC, so the smartphone should be announced anytime by January in the U.S. as well. LG is taking a different approach with its flexible display smartphone compared to Samsung, which is very commendable.
The smartphone packs a 6 inch flexible OLED panel with a resolution of 1280×720, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a 13MP camera, a 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 800 chipset, Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and a massive 3,500 mAh battery. The smartphone also features something known as the self healing back cover which apparently heals itself from minor scratches.
