LG officially announced their first curved-screen smartphone, the G Flex, offering several unique features without hurting super-fast performance and draining its battery life.
LG begins the square match on Samsung's Galaxy Round with their G Flex smartphone which termed as the 'real' curved mobile device and the company promised several aspects on G Flex such as ergonomic use, more immersive experience and self-repairing trait within minutes.
Immersive Gaming and Movie Experience
Unlike Samsung's redesigned with Galaxy Round which exploited user interface benefits, LG focused on the ergonomic function by making the G Flex deliver more immersive gaming and video experience. G Flex features a brighter and more precise display with "Real RGB pixel configuration" and combined with its 6.0 inches of display screen, users will feel an IMAX cinema-like landscape mode.
Swing Lock Screen
G Flex features a unique lock screen called "Swing Lock Screen" which allow users to get different unlocking visual effects depending on the area touched on its screen. In addition, the wallpaper moves accordingly to the tilting motion performed by the owner.
Bendable phones are technically unbreakable which goes back to original state without damaging any internal parts. G Flex initiated the "self-repairing" feature that was compared to X-Men's Wolverine character. It has a special protective film on the back cover that gets rid of scratches on the device within minutes.
Sustained Hardware Performance
LG G Flex isn't a mid-range smartphone due to its hardware parts added to the special abilities. LG made G Flex with 6.0-inches of display screen, 720p resolution, 2.26 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2 GB of RAM and 13 MP rear shooting camera.
Owners can enjoy fast data transfer speed via mobile internet, almost full HD video viewing, stable multi-tasking capability with 2 GB of RAM and high-end camera for photo and video captures together with all of the special traits provided by LG in a single smartphone.
LG didn't forget the maiming issue of battery life and so the company installed a 3500 mAh battery pack to ensure an entire day of immersive experience. Expect full contents of LG app suite for performance, network and power saving on G Flex smartphone.
LG included a compatibility feature of LTE-A networks on the G Flex in South Korea and runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with LG's own user interface and icons.
