LG’s curved smartphone the G Flex is going to go on sale in Europe for the first time next month, introducing people in the UK to the concept of the flexible display for the first time.
South Korean customers have been able to buy this device since the end of last year, but it has taken a little while for LG to prepare it for its international debut.
The G Flex has a six inch 720p display, which is not all that impressive on paper, save for the fact that it is actually capable of bending and flexing, unlike the majority of its rivals.
It also comes with the Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM and a 13 megapixel camera, with prices expected to start from close to 700, which is unsurprising, given the quality of the components and the uniqueness of the flexible screen.
With such a big display area, having a slightly concave surface means that it is easier to use the device with one hand. But some people will want to wait for the second generation, which will surely sport a 1080p display, to compete with the Samsung Galaxy Note 3.
