The South Korean giant Samsung has just announced its first generation curved display smartphone, now it's time to see LG's innovative side with the G Flex. The rumored LG G Flex, a curved flexible display phone, is said to be announced next month.
In fact, some images of the supposed G Flex have been leaked out ahead of its anticipated debut. Engadget has reportedly come up with first press renders of LG's forthcoming G Flex smartphone. The device in these leaked press renders is similar to sketches of the G Flex that made an appearance earlier this month.Moreover, the phone looks like LG G2 with a twist.
As of now, the internal hardware details in respect to LG G Flex are unavailable. LG could beat Samsun Electronics, if the G2 maker would price its upcoming curved flexible display under $800 (Rs 48,956).
The LG G Flex will be a curved phone with curved display. The street is abuzz with rumors that LG's first curved smartphone to have a 6-inch OLED display. Few days back, LG accepted for the first time that they would be producing massive screens in the coming days.
"The new display is vertically concave from top to bottom with a radius of 700mm, opening up a world of design innovations in the smartphone market. And only 0.44mm thin, LG Display's flexible OLED panel is the world's slimmest among existing mobile device panels. What's more, it is also the world's lightest, weighing a mere 7.2g even with a 6-inch screen, the largest among current smartphone OLED displays."
It seems that LG will come up with a 6-inch OLED display curved smartphone in November. Reuters also confirmed that LG has been planning a curved display phone for quite some time. LG's arch rival Samsung has already launched its first ever high-end flexible display phone - the Galaxy Round.
Meanwhile, LG Chemicals is working on a new battery technique that will allow them to create non-rectangular and flexible batteries. The existing battery designs are not fit for a flexible display smartphone. Thus, LG's curved battery can power upcoming devices with curved designs such as smartphones, watches and glasses.
"Stepped Battery refers to an integral type of a battery in which two batteries are added on top of each other in the shape of "step design." The battery takes greater advantage of available space within the device than other batteries as it perfectly suits the changing trend of modern IT gadgets of flexible designs."
