The LG G Flex, assuming that this is the phone’s real name, is no longer just a theory and a couple of render shots. The actual phablet made appearance on Telefe in Argentina where is was not only photographed but also recorded on video. The device has not been officially confirmed by LG yet, but word on the street is that it is scheduled to arrive some time in November. LG’s first curved handset will be released in South Korea and at the moment it is unclear when and if it will ever reach other markets.
6″ LG G Flex 4G LTE Android Curved Phone
The phone caught on camera at Telefe matches perfectly the device we have seen on renders that leaked earlier this month. The G Flex has a huge display, possibly Full HD OLED measuring 6 inches diagonally, that curves softly along the horizontal axis. Following the trend introduced with the G2, LG moved all physical buttons to the back panel. Above the buttons, there is a square-shaped entity that may be a fingerprint sensor.
The phone is rumored to feature a 13-megapixel rear camera, a quad-core processor, LTE connectivity and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. The LG G Flex will be a direct competitor to the Samsung Galaxy Round, which curves along a different axis. The Galaxy Round includes a few functionalities that take advantage of the phone’s unique shape. At the moment there is no word on whether LG equipped the G Flex with similar features, but we assume it did. Otherwise it would not make much sense to release a curved phone just for the sake of releasing such phone.
