lg g flex

LG has pulled the wrappers off the new G Flex curved phone in its home territory of South Korea. The first LG handset with a flexible display, it’s going head-to-head with key rival Samsung’s recently revealed Galaxy Round.

Rather than curving from left to right like Sammy’s effort, the G Flex uses a flexible display which curves from top to bottom. The idea is that the handset sits more comfortably when taking calls.

Packing a whacking 6-inch screen, the G Flex only manages to squeeze in 720p resolution, a step down from the 1080p devices that are dominating the top-end of the smartphone sector.

It uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM and even has a specially designed “self-healing” back panel. LG says this can fix any hairline scratches within a matter of minutes.

Like Samsung’s Galaxy Round, LG’s G Flex is only being sold in Korea for now. But if curved devices catch on in the gadget-obsessed nation, expect to see them landing here in 2014.
