LG Electrnoics has launched today its uniquely designed flagship smartphone – LG G Flex with curved display in India. This revolutionary smartphone is a technology marvel and will definitely set new trends for the future smartphones designs. This smartphone will be available in India from February, 2014 and its price has not been disclosed yet. But according to LG, this smartphone will be in the range of Rs. 65,000 and the exact price will be announced close on the heels of its availability. We expect that this smartphone will be priced around Rs. 63,900.
The LG G Flex sports a 6-inch HD (1280 x 720) display, and is powered by a 2.26GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, an Adreno 330 GPU, and 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory. As per LG, the display found in the G Flex is the world’s largest Plastic OLED (POLED) display developed and mass produced specifically for this smartphones. The ultra-thin, ultra-light flexible POLED display and curved OLED panel are built on plastic substrates instead of glass, giving LG G Flex its unique shape and durability. The LG G Flex is equipped with a 13-megapixel rear camera, and a 2.1-megapixel front camera. The G Flex weighs just 177 grams, and runs on Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2 OS.
The curved battery packed in the G Flex is designed especially for this phablet and this technology, reduces the physical stress on the battery pack when in the curved form and provides better stability and performance. Despite its thin form, the LG G Flex battery has a capacity of 3,500mAh, enough power for more than a full day of use.
For connectivity options, the LG G Flex has Blue Tooth 4.0, USB 3.0, WiFi (802.11 a/b/g/n/ac), and NFC.
LG G Flex also features the Rear Key first introduced in the LG G2 smartphone. Devoid of any buttons on the sides, there is less chance of accidentally powering off the phone and the convenience of using one’s index finger to adjust the volume when conversing is maintained.
Compared to Samsung’s Galaxy Round curved smartphones, which is curved from side to side, the G Flex is curved from top-to bottom, and LG calls it vertically curved. The curved design also offers a more reassuring grip and fits more comfortably in one’s back pocket. What’s more, in landscape mode, the display offers an IMAX-like experience, with the result being the most comfortable viewing angle for watching videos or playing games.
The LG G Flex is the first smartphone, which comes with “Self Healing” coating on the back cover. The elastic coating has the ability to recover from the daily wear-and-tear scratches and nicks that un-cased smartphones are likely to receive.
The price of LG G Flex appears to be little bit higher, but since this smartphone has new design concept therefore it is little bit expensive, but in due course of time, the price of this design will come down. Let us see how this new design is accepted by the Indain customers, at its current price.
