LG G Flex Curved Smartphone Leaked As First Samsung Galaxy Round Rival
Posted: October 14, 2013 by Emily Brown
It has been a week since Samsung gave its customers a special treat taking the wraps off the world's first curved screen smartphone, and now LG strikes back. With some conveniently leaked (read 'strategically released') images, the fourth largest South Korean mobile maker showed off the LG G Flex Smartphone: a 6-inch device that is curved enough to be seen as the first Samsung Galaxy Round rival.
The images came after LG's announcement that they already work on "bendable and unbreakable" smartphone displays and amidst much speculation of their upcoming handset known as the G Flex.
Now, we can spot the obvious difference between the two, which is only in the direction of the curve. While Samsung's Galaxy Round curves horizontally from left to right, LG's G Flex goes vertically from top to bottom. Reportedly, the latter's curve is designed to ergonomically fit around the user's face as they use the smartphone.
We are still being left in the dark when it comes to pricing and availability, but still, LG G Flex is expected to launch sometime in November.
