The Verge has managed to grab a hold of the LG G Flex before its official release sometime next month, having an in depth look of the device after Argentinean journalist Federico Ini provided photos of the curved device.
Even though LG cannot claim the first place on the curved smartphone race, they may be able to claim best. The LG G Flex is a different design, with the side-to-side curve instead of the top to bottom, making a lot more sense.
The LG G Flex will essentially come as a curved version of the LG G2, the same way the Galaxy Round is a curved Galaxy Note 3. The curved smartphone has the same design as the LG G2, complete with thin bezels and the back buttons.
It will come with a 13MP camera and the quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, alongside 2GB of RAM. The only major change will be the curved OLED display, still 1080p with the same resolution as the LG G2 display.
There is no current news on the software side of the LG G Flex, Samsung added some new features to the Galaxy Round to work with the flexible display and we may see this happen on the LG G Flex.
The launch is expected to only be in South Korea, where the normal early adopters lurk. The phone will not be mass produced or available in other countries. Whether it is successful or not, we believe both Samsung and LG will continue to create flexible devices.
