LG reveals curved G Flex smartphone Earlier this week, LG announced its hotly anticipated curved G Flex smartphone.
The device goes on sale in Korea in November, with no timetable for a global launch as of yet.

G Flex devices feature a 720p 6-inch curved P-OLED, which LG claims is ultra-light, ultra-thin and flexible. The device runs on Android 4.2.2, is powered by a 2.26GHz Snapdragon 800, an Adreno 330 GPU, 2GB RAM and a 3500mAh battery.

In addition, the device has a 13-megapixel rear camera, and a 2.1-megapixel front camera. The OLED panel is also built with plastic substrates, for better durability. The display also includes Real RGB technology for all three sub-pixels in one pixel, increasing brightness.

The battery is curved, as well, and built internally by LG Chem.

Another very interesting feature is what LG calls 'Self-Healing' coating for the back cover which helps the device "recover from the daily wear-and-tear scratches and nicks that un-cased smartphones are likely to receive."

For connectivity, the Flex has LTE-A, LTE, HSPA+, Bluetooth 4.0, USB 3.0, Wi-Fi (802.11 a/b/g/n/ac) and NFC suuport. LG can also decode MP3, CD quality or 24 bit/192kHz Hi-Fi for audiophiles.

Looks good. Although a 720P screen will probably be questionable at whatever they price this at, and it doesn't look very pocket-able with a curve like that...

I just can't seem to get my head around the reason for a 720p when majority are 1080p...
