Back in October, the folks at LG released the curved LG G Flex smartphone and initially made it available on the Korean market. If you were a fan of the handset and were upset you can’t get your hands on it because it’s not available in your country, we are glad to announce you that the Korean phone maker announced that the “LG G Flex begins global roll out.”
The press statement issued by the Korean company indicates that the first new markets on which the LG G Flex will debut are Singapore and Hong Kong where it will become available for purchase in the following weeks. Furthermore, LG announced that the G Flex will also be released for purchase on other “key markets in Asia” by the end of the year.
The same document published today by LG also indicates that the G Flex will also become available for purchase in other regions, “soon.” With the Korean phone maker failing to indicate the ETA of the curved smartphone debut for Europe or North America and given that the Asian key markets will get it by the end of the year, we’ll go ahead and guess that it will be released early 2014.
If you happen to read this from Singapore, you might want to know that you will be able to place a pre-order for the LG G Flex starting December 8th. On the other hand, the Hong Kong customers will be able to pre-order the device as of December 13th.
In case you don’t know what’s under the hood of the LG G Flex, I remind you that the curved smartphone with self-healing back cover, packs a powerful Snapdragon 800 processor clocked at 2.26 GHz, Adreno 330 GPU, 2 GB RAM, and 32 GB of internal storage. The primary camera is a 13 MP unit with 1080p@60fps video recording capabilities while the front-facing shutter has a 2.1 MP sensor.
The LG G Flex boasts about a 6.0-inch Curved P-OLED 720 x 1280 pixels with 245 ppi pixel density, that is curved from top-to-bottom, unlike the screen of the Galaxy Round which is curved from left-to-right.
Any of you guys planning to purchase the curved LG G Flex once it hits your home country? Do you believe that the flexible displays will become mainstream in the coming years?
