LG recently announced that its curved flagship, the LG G Flex, will be released into several key markets in Asia, and soon, it will be made available globally. The handset was released in Korea a few months ago, and it has captured everybody’s attention through its innovative design and self-healing case. According to LG’s latest statement, the device will hit other marketplaces such as Singapore and Hong Kong, and this is only the beginning of the “global rollout”.
However, it is worth mentioning the fact that the Korean company did not comment on when the smartphone will be reaching Europe, United States or other markets. Nevertheless, its way out of Korea to other Asian markets is only the beginning of its worldwide expansion.
The LG G Flex is different from other similar handsets through its curved case. On inside, the device features a 2.3 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 Chip, 2 GB of RAM and up to 32 GB of internal storage. Its curved display measures 6 inches and its 1280 x 720 screen resolution makes it the best of its kind, compared to other LG’s handsets.
The LG G Flex, along with Samsung’s Galaxy Round has opened the era of curved and flexible handsets. What is special with this curved display is the fact that it is curved to follow the contour of the human face, and it was made possible with the implementation of the world’s first curved smartphone battery. In what concerns the battery, it is a durable plastic OLED HD display. The device comes with a self-healing back cover that protects the handset from the day-to-day scratches.
Smartphone lovers in Singapore will be able to place their pre-orders for the LG G Flex starting with December 8. On the other hand, in Hong Kong, the device will come a little bit later and namely on December 13. In the same time, it will be available through major carriers and leading electronics retailers. Currently, the device is on sale in Korea for $950, but, more likely is that LG will drop this price when it will launch the device on other western markets.
