LG today launched its first curved smartphone, the G Flex, in India at an event in Delhi. The smartphone will hit the shelves in February and will be priced somewhat around Rs 60,000-65,000.
The G FLex comes with an interesting design, which includes a flexible display and a self-healing rear panel. Features-wise, it has a 6-inch HD (720p) curved P-OLED display, which is surprisingly flexible. Under the hood runs Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor clocked at 2.26GHz, which was earlier seen on the G2 as well.
The processor is supplemented by 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage but does not have a microSD card slot. The rear of the phone adorns a 13-megapixel camera with the rear-mounted control keys that were introduced with the LG G2 and a 3,500mAh battery. Connectivity options in the phone include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS/AGPS, NFC and 3G HSPA+ network support.
Talking about the software, the phone will come with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, which is disappointing considering Android 4.4 KitKat is already out of the gate. Hopefully, LG would probably release the phone with the latest version of Android by the time it launches in India.
