LG has finally unveiled its first curved smartphone, the G Flex, which comes with a curve design and also comes loaded with new user experience (UX) features to support the curved form factor.
Talking of the design, LG G Flex comes in this curved unibody design with a non-removable back and battery, and features volume rocker and power key at the rear, like were seen on the LG G2. Also, the back has an elastic coating which will protect the phone from scratches and damages.
In terms of specifications, the Korean version of the phone has been launched with a 6-inch 720p Curved P-OLED (Real RGB) display. On the software front, it runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with new features like QTheater, Dual-Windows, Swing LockScreen, Face-Detection, Camera-timer and Urgent Call Alert along with some of the LG G2 like UX features such as KnockON, Guest Mode and Plug & Pop.
The phone is powered by a 2.26 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 (MSM 8974) processor with 450MHz Adreno 330 GPU and 2GB of RAM, with 32GB of internal memory. There is a 13 -megapixel rear camera and a 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera. Other features in the phone include connectivity support for standard features like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC, 3G and LTE which could be based on a country’s network support, and houses a 3,500mAh battery which the company claims would run for more than a full day of use. The phone has been launched in titan silver color.
There is no information on the launch date of the phone in other countries and we don’t expect the phone landing in markets like India anytime soon. It will compete with Samsung’s Galaxy Round, which was announced recently.
