LG G Flex officially starts its global rollout this week
LG today has announced that its G Flex smartphone is being launched outsite South Korea this week – confirming a rumor appeared last month.
For the beginning, the G Flex will be introduced in Hong Kong (on December 13) and Singapore (pre-orders start on December 8). Other key markets in Asia will get the handset before the end of the year, while more regions around the globe (including Europe and the US) to follow soon.
Running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, the LG G Flex offers a 6 inch P-OLED curved and flexible display (with 1280 x 720 pixels), LTE Advanced connectivity, dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, NFC, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, 13MP rear camera, 32GB of internal memory, and a 3,500 mAh curbed battery.
The new handset isn’t just LG’s first smartphone to feature a curved display and a curved battery, but also the world’s first to come with a self-healing back cover that’s efficient against “day-to-day scratches.”
At the moment, the G Flex costs 999,900 KRW (about $942) in South Korea. Its price will probably be slightly lower in other markets, since most smartphones are usually more expensive in Korea.
In the US, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile are all expected to carry the G Flex sometime in early 2014.
