World’s First Curved, Self-Healing Phone Comes To U.S. [CES 2014]



In the midst of its press conference ahead of CES in Las Vegas, this morning, LG let slip that its first curved flexible smartphone, the G Flex, will indeed be coming to AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile during Q1 of 2014, thus confirming weeks of leaks, rumors and speculation.

The G Flex is a relatively impressive high-end smartphone, packing a 6-inch curved P-OLED capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 720 x 1280, a Qualcomm MSM8974 Snapdragon 800 chipset powered by four 2.26GHz Krait 400 CPU’s, the latest Adreno 330 GPU, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of non-expandable flash memory, a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 3,500 mAh non-removable Li-Po battery.

In terms of software, the handset ships running the latest build of Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with LG’s custom user interface plastered over the top, but the Flex is expected to receive the much-anticipated Android 4.4.2 KitKat update in the not-too-distant future, bringing it in line with the Nexus 5 and Moto X.

Unfortunately, we have no information with regards to pricing as of yet, but we will be sure to let you know more as soon as we do.
