LG Electronics has finally launched it’s much awaited LG G Flex in India for Rs. 69,999. The device was launched in December last year and is world’s first smartphone with a curved display. In addition, the device also has its share of flexibility i.e. it can be bent flat without damaging the glass.
Commenting on the launch, Soon Kwon, MD-LG India, said,” Curved flexible displays are a groundbreaking technology that enhances consumers’ viewing experience by many degrees. LG G Flex represents a new era in the smartphone space where curved and flexible displays are no longer a sci-fi fantasy.”
The LG G Flex sports a 6-inch HD OLED display with 1280×720 pixels resolution and is powered by a 2.26GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor along with 2GB RAM. The device runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean operating system and has 32GB inbuilt storage capacity. In terms of camera, the back features a 13MP snapper and the front features a 2.1MP snapper. All of this is packed with 3,500mAh battery strength. The device weighs 177grams and is 8.7mm in thickness.
