Submission + - SPAM: Watch Out Samsung, LG Unveils G Flex With Curved OLED Display

jarold writes: While most of us has not yet understood the practical function of a curved display in the Samsung Galaxy Round, LG has officially announced that it will release its own version of curved-screen smartphone. After long rumors with even leaked images circulating, the device dubbed as G FLEX will be available in Korea starting next month. No details have been disclosed for an international release.

LG claims the gadget is the “world’s first ‘real’ curved smartphone,” claiming better ergonomics when making phone calls and a more immersive video experience.

The most intriguing feature which LG says, the G Flex uses “self-healing” technology : a special protective film on the back cover designed to get rid of scratches on the phone within minutes. That remains to be seen when we can actually test for ourselves.

For a bent phone, it is impressive that the battery is 3,500 mAh. Samsung Galaxy Round’s capacity was only at 2,800 mAh a notable reduction from 3,200 mAh in Note 3.
