Talking of the design, LG G Flex comes in this curved unibody design with a non-removable back and battery, and features volume rocker and power key at the rear, like were seen on the LG G2. Also, the back has an elastic coating which will protect the phone from scratches and damages.
In terms of specifications, the Korean version of the phone has been launched with a 6-inch 720p Curved P-OLED (Real RGB) display. On the software front, it runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with new features like QTheater, Dual-Windows, Swing LockScreen, Face-Detection, Camera-timer and Urgent Call Alert along with some of the LG G2 like UX features such as KnockON, Guest Mode and Plug & Pop.
There is no information on the launch date of the phone in other countries and we don t expect the phone landing in markets like India anytime soon. It will compete with Samsung’s Galaxy Round, which was announced recently.
