LG suits up its high-end devices with IPS LCD displays

Usually, LG suits up its high-end devices with IPS LCD displays, but the OLED screen is bendable, which lends to the G Flex's vertically bowed design. In addition, the 6-inch HD display has a 1,280x720-pixel resolution. Like the name suggests, the G Flex sports a curved, 0.34-inch-thick construction, partly thanks to its plastic OLED screen. Not long after LG revealed that it had successfully developed curved smartphone batteries, the Korean-based company announced the G Flex, a 6-inch quad-core smartphone that features an arched touch screen and rear control buttons. Though US pricing and availability remain unknown, the device will hit Korea in November, with more markets announced afterward.

Patent technology

The handset also includes the aforementioned curved battery inside. According to LG, the 3,500mAh battery uses patented technology that takes advantage of its unique shape to perform more reliably. Another novel aspect is the G Flex's back side, which features an elastic self-healing coating. This coat reportedly mends and protects the phone from day-to-day scuffs and scratches. Powering the device is a 2.26GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor and a 450MHz Adreno 330 GPU for ultra-smooth gameplay.

Other features include 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal memory, and NFC. For shutterbugs, the phone is equipped with a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera. It runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and is LTE enabled.

Red notification light

There is also an urgent call alert, which flashes the LED notification light when you miss several calls in a row from the same number, and swing lock screen, which changes the lock screen image depending on how you hold the phone. The G Flex follows news of Samsung releasing its own, albeit horizontally curved, smartphone, known as the Galaxy Round.
