The 15 second video shows the device s self healing back in action. A person is seen pressing the back of the device and like an elastic the device assumes its original shape. The device is then flipped on its back and the same step is repeated. The result, not surprisingly, is the same. We are not sure why the phone should flex and whether we should be worried about it, we hope that LG has done enough with other internal components as well to handle the flex.
To recap on the device s specifications, the G Flex flaunts a 6-inch 720p Curved P-OLED (Real RGB) display and is powered by a 2.26GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor paired with Adreno 330 GPU and 2GB of RAM.
Other features include are a 13-megapixel rear camera, 2.1-megapixel front camera, 32GB of internal storage, and a 3,500mAh battery. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC, 3G and LTE and on the software front it runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. LG has also introduced a new UX specially made for the device and has pre-loaded it with features like QTheater, Dual-Windows, Swing LockScreen, Face-Detection, Camera-timer and Urgent Call Alert among others.
