Samsung recently announced their first ever smartphone with a curved display known as the Samsung Galaxy Round and its competitor is already here. LG – one of Samsung’s main rival in the Asian region – officially revealed the LG G Flex, a 6-inch Android phone and LG’s first ever curved display smartphone, also they are calling it the “world’s first real curved smartphone” – may be this statement is just to tease Samsung.
LG G Flex is curved vertically from top to bottom, unlike the Samsung Galaxy Round which is from left to right. Also LG notes that this is the ‘ideal curve’ because the positioning of the earpiece and microphone, makes for a richer and better sound quality. About the specs of the G Flex, it features Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, a 2.26GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, a 13MP camera with a 2.1MP front-facing camera, 3,500 mAh battery, and also it is LTE-enabled. Just like the LG G2, the G Flex has the rear control buttons as well.
Now let’s talk about some unique features. It includes “swing lock screen”, which actually sees the lockscreen move to the direction of the curve. And also LG G Flex is like ‘Wolverine’ in X-Men, as the company claims that the back of it is “self-healing”: “a special protective film on the back cover is designed to get rid of scratches on the phone within minutes”. This is some unbelievable innovation, so let’s wait for some reviews before putting any money on it. LG will be releasing it in their hometown i.e. Korea and all three major carriers will carry it, so we hope to see an international announcement soon.
Like the LG Curve smartphone customers real value and convenience to make you feel ‘LG G Flex’ by adopting the best up and down in the direction of curvature bend 700R made. Thus, only in the easy-to-use ergonomic design and portability, the immersion when watching videos, etc. Like the existing curve smartphone fails to implement ‘G Flex’ is a unique competitive differentiation.”
