LG G Flex To launch in India for Rs 69,900, Retail Availability By Next Week ?

    South Korea's second largest smartphone vendor, LG, is all set to introduce India's most expensive Android-based phone, the G Flex.

    In December 2013, LG officially launched the much anticipated phone in the country. Back then, the company had not revealed its retail price but now it seems that the wait is almost over.

    According to Mumbai-based retailer Mahesh Telecom, the LG G Flex will be made available in India by next week. And further, as expected, the phone has been priced at a jaw dropping Rs. 69,900. LG hasn't announced the official pricing just yet.

    The LG G Flex incorporates a curved display and more importantly it features a "self healing "coating that actually removes scratches and scars automatically. The G Flex features a 6-inch HD Curved OLED display having 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.

    The phone is powered by a 2.26 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 (MSM8974) processor and 450 MHz Adreno 330 GPU coupled with 2GB DDR3 RAM and 32GB of internal memory, which can be expandable up to 64GB via a microSD card slot.

    Android Jelly Bean v4.2.2 comes out of the box. On the camera front, expect a 13MP rear camera with an LED Flash, and a 2.1 MP front facing shooter.

    Since the phone will be priced at a premium, the handset may not get as wide retail availability as any other high-end phone usually gets. The curved phone will target select limited audience, primarily residing in top tier-1 cities. The biggest challenger in front of LG G Flex is none other than Apple iPhone 5S 64GB. The latter handset is priced close to Rs. 70,000.
