The competition between LG and Samsung has officially reached a whole new level. Earlier this month, Samsung announced the Galaxy Round, its fist smartphone with a curved screen. LG eagerly followed the lead and today lifted the veils off of the G Flex. The idea behind the LG G Flex is basically the same as Samsung had, only the phone bends along a different axis. The LG G Flex will hit the stores in South Korean some time in November. Later on, the device will be available in other markets as well.

The unique design of the LG G Flex is not only about aesthetics but also has a practical application. The phone follows the shape of the face, this way reducing the distance between the mouth and the microphone and resulting in higher quality of voice.
The POLED screen made with Real RGB technology measures 6 inches diagonally and offers 1280 x 720 resolution. The LG G Flex is also the first phone ever to introduce “self-healing” coating on the back panel that almost immediately reduces the signs of daily use such as scratches.
Spec-wise, the handset is a powerhouse with its quad-core 2.26 GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, Adreno 330 GPU and 2 GB of RAM. In terms of internal memory you will get 32 GB of storage for your content with microSD slot for expansion. The phone also sports a 13-megapixel rear camera, 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera, 3,500 mAh battery, NFC and LTE connectivity.
The LG G Flex runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and includes a host of new features such as QTheater, Dual Window, Swing Lockscreen, Face Detection Indicator, and more.
