LG announces the G Flex – The first “real” curved phone

g2-flexLG has just recently announced that it is releasing a new device which is allegedly the first “real” curved smartphone, which of course means that the Nexus S sitting beside me is imaginary.

Along with this debatable slogan LG threw in some respectable specs, but fell short at its most interesting feature, it’s screen.

The LG G Flex ships with a 6 – inch 720p AMOLED display, which of course is curved around the x-axis , much like the Nexus S and the Galaxy nexus. I’m not quite sure why LG went for a 720p display on a screen that big in a market where 1080p is queen.

The G Flex also comes with the norm for high-end devices, it comes with a quad-core snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, android 4.2.2 (I presume no 4.3 and will be updating straight to 4.4) , a 3,500mAh battery and a 13 mp camera on the back with the same positioned camera buttons as the G2.

LG also included a “self-healing” capability on the rear of the smartphone. This “works” as the back is a form of elastic that can repair itself from daily bumps and scratches, helping to keep the phone looking new. Whether this feature actually works is yet to see, and will be quite interesting if it works.

The LG G Flex is only going to be available in Korean markets at first but there is no word on global markets at present, but I’ll keep you updated on that.

So what do you think of the LG G Flex? Is it another gimmick with the curved display and self-repairing or is it your godsend? Let me know in the comments below and I’ll see you all next time.
