LG G Flex with curved display and self-healing back panel launched in India for Rs 69,999

After unveiling the phone in December, LG has today officially launched the G Flex in India. The company’s first smartphone with a curved display has been priced at a staggering Rs 69,999. It is the same price at which it was listed on the company’s website earlier this week.

The G Flex, as mentioned above, is LG’s first smartphone with a curved display and a self-healing rear panel. It also features the rear-mounted key panel that was first seen on the G2 and is likely to become a regular feature on LG’s forthcoming flagship devices.

To recap on the specifications, the G Flex sports a 6-inch HD (1280×720 pixels) curved plastic OLED (POLED) display and is powered by a Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor clocked at 2.2GHz. It is paired with 2GB of RAM and offers 32GB of internal storage, but no microSD card slot to expand the memory.

On the photography front, it features a 13-megapixel rear camera with LED flash and support for recording videos at 1080p and a 2.1-megapixel camera on the front. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS/AGPS, NFC and 3G HSPA+ network support. Other features include a 3,500mAh non-removable battery. On the software front, it runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, which is disappointing considering that even at this price point the company has failed to offer Android 4.4 KitKat.
