LG G Flex international launch event announced
LG will hold an international launch event for its LG G Flex curved smartphone in the early days of December.
The South Korean manufacturer recently sent out invites (see below) to an LG G Flex-themed event being held in Hong Kong on December 3, which is this coming Tuesday.
As reported by 3G.cn, this is intended to mark the wider launch of the LG G Flex in markets outside of South Korea, where it is already available to purchase.
It’s already been announced that the LG G Flex will be made available in Europe – specifically on France’s Orange network – some time in February.
The LG G Flex is a 6-inch smartphone with a couple of unique attributes. The main one its that its large 720p display curves from top to bottom. It utilises a similar kind of flexible OLED display to the Samsung Galaxy Round.
This serves to mimic the immersive effect of watching a curved OLED TV when viewing video on the G Flex. It also makes it more ergonomically suited to making calls, as it curves around the shape of your face.
In fact, the whole phone is worthy of the name Flex – it’s possible to literally flatten the device with a little pressure at its raise ends.
The other notable feature of the LG G Flex is its self-healing back. Scratch it up, and the slashes will seal up within minutes.
Other than that 720p display, which is hardly the sharpest on the market, the LG G Flex is a well specced device. It runs on a 2.26GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 CPU and 2GB of RAM, and it sports a 13-megapixel camera. It weighs a hefty 177g.
