The Korean giants Samsung and LG are locking horns with each other once again. Just after the launch of Galaxy Round almost a fortnight ago, LG has announced its curved phone aptly named as G Flex. However, unlike the vertical curvature of Galaxy round, the G Flex is curved horizontally. This might be a better implementation than the Samsung since it would make it fit snugly against the user’s face. Manufacturer also claims that this form would be great for watching movies, since it provides excellent viewing angles for watching videos or playing games.
Most of the device is based on LG’s flagship device G2 launched last month in India. It includes design, processor and RAM, and camera. Though the display is not of the same resolution at 720 p. Software side of things are also similar to the G2 such as double knock, Q Slide, etc. There are some new features as well like QTheater, Dual Window and some intelligent use of rear button. LG also claims that the back cover would be able to recover from minor scratches and knocks. However, there is no detail about how this would actually work.
