LG G Flex Hands-On Video

By  |  0 Comments

The LG G Flex is the first commercially available smartphone with a flexible curved display and it is also a very nice looking device that boasts a self-healing feature to help repair and hide scratches and other damage.

While the LG G Flex arrived last year in Korea it is on the way to the U.S. with release dates on AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint in the first quarter of 2014.

At CES 2014 we were able to go hands-on with the LG G Flex and see the flexible display in action. In the short video below you can see the LG G Flex bend, flex and bounce back to life.

The LG G Flex includes a 5.9-inch 720P display with a P-OLED screen. A P-OLED display uses plastic, which is necessary for the phone to flex and bend and also why the device includes a self-healing component.

While many of the flagship smartphones rely on metal, the G Flex’s body is made of a plastic material that still feels nice to the touch. The Flex material will repair scratches and nicks over time so users won’t need to find a case that can flex with the phone to keep it looking nice for the life of the phone.

From a hardware standpoint the LG G Flex has a 13 megapixel dual stage flash and a 2.3GHz Qualcomm processor with 2GB RAM. The phone includes a large 3,500 mAh battery which somehow lives inside the bending flexible body of the LG G Flex.

There is no specific LG G Flex release date on AT&T, T-Mobile or Sprint, but we will see them before March is over according to the company. The LG G Flex price is missing for now, but expect something in the $200 to $300 range.
