It’s well known that LG is planning to launch a curved smartphone that aims to take on Samsung’s Galaxy Round. Well, the smartphone already leaked on web a couple of times and it was even caught on camera a couple of days ago. You can see the LG G Felx in action here.
Unlike Samsung’s Galaxy Round which has the screen curved left-to-right, the LG G Flex has it’s 6-inch display curved from top-to-bottom.
Well, the G Flex just got benchmark tested and its scores are pretty similar to the ones of the LG G2. The AnTuTu benchmark log also confirms that LG curved smartphone will share its hardware platform with the LG G2 flagship. So, the 6-inch flexible handset will pack a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC with quad-core 2.26 GHz Krait 400 CPU and Adreno 330 GPU, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage, and a 13 MP camera.
Just like the G2, the LG G Flex has the volume and power buttons placed on its back, right below the camera shutter, so the main difference between the two devices will be the screen.
You might want to hear that he 6-inch screen fitted on the LG G Flex has a resolution of 720×1280 pixels, which puts it behind Samsung’s Galaxy Round.
Rumor has it that the LG G Flex will be officially introduced to the public in November and that it will be sold exclusively on the Korean market.
