As Samsung gets mocked high and wide for the Galaxy Round, LG is preparing to launch their flexible smartphone, the LG G Flex, sometime next month according to Engadget sources.
The major change between the Galaxy Round and the LG G Flex is the design of the curved display, in Samsung’s case, the screen curves in from the sides, on the LG G Flex is curves from top to bottom and we prefer LG’s design.
We are not sure what added functionality the LG G Flex’s curved screen will provide, if any. Samsung seemed a little stumped when it came to announcing the device, showing some weird TouchWiz functionality exclusively for the Galaxy Round.
The LG G Flex looks like a combination of the LG G2 and Moto X, with the slightly curved back. The Moto X does have a shell design, whereas the LG G Flex is the same width all the way down the smartphone.
According to recent reports, the LG G Flex will not miss a beat when it comes to specs, with a 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, 3000mAh battery, NFC and LTE.
In terms of screen, LG is likely to go with the curved OLED the same as Samsung and new reports suggest this will be a 6-inch screen. We will see the official announcement sometime next month, but we wouldn’t expect an event.
