LG’s G Flex Wins 2014 iF Design Award


LG officially announced that its first curved self-healing smartphone, the G Flex, was presented with a Gold Award earlier today, along with 26 of its other products at the iF Design Awards conference in Denmark. This came as quite a nice surprise to the South Korean company seeing that the Flex was the first handset on the market to feature a vertically curved display, and there was no real certainty that it would be welcomed by the public.

“The G Flex was commended by iF judges for implementing a new approach to the smartphone interface by putting controls on the back and adopting a curved display, thereby adding immensely to the smartphone experience in terms of both ergonomics and quality,” reports LG in a press release on its website.

In terms of performance, the G Flex is a relatively impressive high-end smartphone, packing a gorgeous 6-inch curved P-OLED capacitve touchscreen with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels, a Qualcomm MSM8974 Snapdragon 800 chipset powered by four 2.26GHz Krait 400 CPU’s, an Adreno 330 GPU, 2GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 3,500 mAh battery.
