LG G Flex hitting Korea next week for $900 LG's upcoming G Flex flexible display smartphone will be available in Korea starting next week.
The company had previously announced the device, along with specs and features, but had not supplied a price.

Beginning November 12th, the device will sell for 999,900 Korean Won (about $935 USD), a price that will likely scare away most would-be buyers unless you just need to have it.

European carriers will get the curved device starting next month.

The G Flex features 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.

Shape is DOPE!

Specs suck for the innovation level though.
