Curved LG G Flex Leaks With 13MP Camera, Buttons On Its Back


We already know that LG is working on its first smartphone with a curved-glass OLED display; the company itself has confirmed it, and we’ve seen a number of leaked press renders. And now the device has been pictured out in the wild with a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, and buttons on its back.

The images were obtained by Argentinian broadcaster Telefe, who managed to get an early hands-on with the device. The device has a 6-inch display, and it looks a little like LG’s current flagship, the G2 — only its display is curved. The handset also has sleep/wake and volume buttons on its back like the G2, and a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera.


When it launches next month, the G Flex will go head-to-head with the only other curved-glass smartphone there is, the Samsung Galaxy Round. That has a 5.7-inch OLED display, but it curves on a different axis. It also features a 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, a 13-megapixel camera, and a 2,800mAh battery.

The G Flex will initially be available in South Korea, but it’s unclear whether it will come to the U.S. or Europe later on. If it sells well, it’s unlikely LG will continue to sell it in just one market.
