Talk about cut throat competition. Just weeks after Samsung introduced Galaxy Round, LG has come out with a competitor. LG G Flex, which had been making rounds in the news till now, has gone official in South Korea. The phone’s unique feature is its massive 6 inch vertically curved (against Galaxy Round’s horizontal curve, something that never made sense, if you ask us) OLED panel, that according to LG offers a more immerse experience while watching movies or playing games.
Another interesting feature of the phone is its ability to heal minor scratches on its body. Reminds of Wolverine from X-Men, right? Well, the phone can heal minor scratches on its body in a matter of minutes. The usual specs of the phone include a 2.26GHz quad core Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB RAM, 32GB inbuilt memory and a 3,500mAh battery. The phone also features a 13MP rear camera, while the volume rocker sits below it. there’s also LTE-A onboard to keep the data flowing. The phone runs on Android 4.2.2 and comes with LG’s own suite of software including multi window app functionality and double tap to wake.
The phone goes on sale in Korea next month on all three major carriers. There’s no word on the global availability for now and unless it shows some promising sales on its home turf, we’re not counting much on it.
