Self healing material is set to grace the LG Curve that is due to be launched later this month. Named the G Flex, the phone will be able to recover from slight scratches within minutes which will be a plus for those who really want to maintain a scratch free look. My one year old phone looks like a ten year old handset so here the G Flex has done a great value addition to the top innovation.
Earlier on in this post we had speculated on the LG Curve and compared it to Samsung Curve (Now Samsung Galaxy Round). LG has released the full spec details that we briefly describe as follows:
1. Screen and Size- The G Flex will come with a six inches OLED screen with a 1280 by 720 pixels resolution giving it a pixel density of 245ppi. The phone feels massive as 177g with a length of 160.5mm, width of 81.6 mm and 8.7mm thickness. Most phones released today have thickness below 8mm so any phone with a thickness above the 8mm mark is too thick. Galaxy Round that could be a comparable phone weighs only 154g with a thickness of 7.9mm.
2. Processor – LG Flex has a massive processing power thanks to the Quad-core 2.26 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset. The phone will launch with Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2 despite the fact that current Android phones are being released on Jelly Bean 4.3. LG should be aware that KitKat is already out and offers some neat features so the worst they should have done is to go with Jelly Bean 4.3.
3. Camera – The rear Camera is a 13MP rear camera and a 2.1MP front facing Camera capable of 1080p (full HD) recording.
So there the curved phones come. A lot have been said about the usability of a curved display phone since they do not really add any new features and functions to the already existing flat screens. What Samsung and LG want to show is that they can change the look of a beautifully done handles like LG G2 and Samsung Galaxy Note III into some ugly looking things like the G Flex and the Galaxy Round respectively.
