After many rumors and many leaks, LG has officially announced the G Flex. The phone brings a top to bottom curved, 6-inch, 720p, display. While LG hasn’t built in features that take advantage of the shape like Samsung did with their Galaxy Round, LG says that they are focusing more on better ergonomics. There are however a couple features specific to the device including dual-window and “theater curtain” interactions. LG also claims that the curved display will bring a better entertainment experience providing an IMAX-like curve to the display. They also claim this will bring better sound as well.
It is powered by a 3500mAh battery with a Snapdragon 800 and 2GB of RAM. The device also sports a 13 MP camera. Taking a design cue from the LG G2, the phone has no buttons on the side and instead places them on the back. Another interesting part of the back of this phone is the fact that it is “self-repairing”. The rear cover is coated in a special material that can repair minor scratches over the course of a few minutes. It’s not clear exactly how it works, but LG actually compared it to Wolverine from the X-Men.
This phone, unfortunately, will only be available in South Korea with no word of an International or U.S. release.
