After numerous leaks, the curved-screen smartphone from LG is finally official. LG G Flex is the company’s answer to Samsung’s Galaxy Round which also sport a curved display. This handset uses a flexible OLED screen which allows curves in between 7.9mm and 8.7mm.

LG G Flex has a 6-inch HD (1280x720p) display and is powered by a powerful 2.26GHz Snapdragon 800 processor. It also has 2GB of RAM for efficient multitasking and a 13-megapixel main camera is located at the back. All of this will run through a 3500 mAh battery.


The G Flex also include a “swing lock screen” feature that ignites a movement to the wallpaper when there’s a tilting motion. It can also produce various unlocking effects that differ depending on which are on the screen is touched. Also, you can pinch directly from the lockscreen to launch apps.


But what really stands out on the LG G Flex is the “self-healing” technology which is apparently similar to the skill of Wolverine from the widely popular X-Men series. It is said to have a special protective film hosted on the back cover that’s designed to remove any scratches. That’s a really interesting claim though it’s very hard to believe until we see one in action.

LG G Flex will be available in Korea in November but the price is currently unknown. There’s no info regarding the international availability yet.

  2. I honestly do not get these curved screen phones. I see no advantages and many disadvantages. Interested what other people think.

  3. Sir I’ve always been a fan of Android ever since it came to existence, with Samsung Galaxy Round and LG coming out with this one,I am just curious, do you think there is a demand for such uniquely shaped Android devices?

    1. Obviously wala pang demand since bago pa lang. We’ll never know baka naman mag hit ang ganitong tech pag may naintroduce na groundbreaking feature.
