After a several leaks that took place over the past few months, LG's G Flex, the company's first smartphone with a curved OLED display is finally official. After Samsung's Galaxy Round which features 5.7 inches curved display, G Flex is the second handset in the world to come with such display technology.

The manufacturer has not spoken about the price and availability of the device as of now. However, the company has said that the device will go on sale in Korea next month. There is no word on when the device is going be shipped to other markets as the moment. But it seems both handsets will be first seen in the hands of Koreans because even Samsung is rumored to release their curved handset first in South Korea.

Going by the specs, the unique handset comes with a 6-inch HD Curved OLED display offering a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. The Curved Plastic OLED display from LG Display has Real RGB sub-pixels for better colors and the display is vertically concave from top to bottom with a radius of 700mm.

It is powered by a 2.26 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 (MSM8974) processor and 450 MHz Adreno 330 GPU coupled with 2GB DDR3 RAM. The latest curved handset runs on Android Jelly Bean v4.2.2.

It has a 13MP rear camera with LED Flash which is capable of recording video at 1080p and the device also features a 2.1 MP front facing shooter.

The huge phablet houses a 32GB of internal memory which is further expandable with micro SD.

When it comes to connectivity, the handset supports 4G LTE / 3G HSPA, WiFi 802.11 ac/a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 withA2DP, GPS, aGPS and NFC.

The phone which measures 160.5 x 81.6 x 7.9 x 8.7 and weighs 177g draws its energy from a 3500 mAh curved battery developed by LG Chem a subsidiary of LG Corporation. The LG G Flex comes in Titan Silver color and would go on sale in Korea next month. Sadly, the company has not disclosed the price of the curved display featuring handset at the moment.

To talk about the features, the device offers a high-end sound quality (24bit, 192kHz). Talking about it, LG says that the loud-speaker which is present on the back of the G Flex doesn't touch the ground and thus allows the sound to be much crisper than other smartphones. The back panel of the handset is coated with a special material which helps to remove the scratches easily within a minute. Similar to what we have seen in the G2, the power button and the volume keys are present on the back.

When it comes to software, the device offers a Dual Window for multi-tasking, Swing Lockscreen that moves depending on the slope of the smartphone, Q Theater to launch gallery, video player, YouTube, etc from the lock screen.
