LG has just unveiled the G Flex smartphone in Korea with official availability starting next month. Pricing hasn’t been disclosed yet, but we expect it to cost no less than $800 as it is pretty much a concept device. The smartphone expects to rival the Samsung Galaxy Round in Korea. LG hasn’t given out information on a global rollout of the smartphone and we’re not hopeful of seeing it outside South Korea anytime soon.
The G Flex comes with a 6 inch 720p curved OLED display, a 13MP camera on the back, a 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 800 chipset, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, Android 4.2.2 and a 3,500 mAh battery. It’s a bit of a let down that LG decided to go with a 1280×720 resolution display rather than a 1080p Full HD panel like the Galaxy Round. The smartphone comes with tons of LG specific software features and comes with hardware buttons on the back much like the LG G2. One of the unique features of the smartphone apart from the curved display is the self healing back cover which apparently removes minor scratches on its own. LG compares this feature with the healing powers of Wolverine in its press release. It’s a real shame that the device might not see a wider release, but since this is the first of the many flexible display smartphones to come, we’re hopeful of having more smartphones coming our way next year.
