LG has announced the pricing of its first curved display smartphone for the Korean market, the LG G Flex
. The South Korean giant stated in a press note
that the LG G Flex will be available in Korea starting November 12 and would come at 999,900 Korean Won, which translates to roughly Rs. 59,000.
In addition, the company also revealed its plan to release LG G Flex for France via mobile carrier, Orange, next month. However, no pricing details have been announced for France.
Recently, a report suggested that LG has plans to globally launch the G Flex curved display smartphone.
LG launched the much-awaited G Flex smartphone in October this year. The Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean-based phablet is powered by a quad-core 2.26GHz Snapdragon 800 (MSM8974) processor, an Adreno 330 GPU, and 2GB of RAM. It features a 13-megapixel rear camera, and a 2.1-megapixel rear camera. The G Flex is backed by a 3,500mAh battery, weighs 177 grams, and is 7.9mm at its thinnest, while being 8.7mm at its thickest.
As for the 6-inch curved display, it comes with Plastic OLED display (P-OLED), which is supposedly ultra-light, ultra-thin and flexible. The display features Real RGB technology to provide all three sub-pixels in one pixel, thereby making it 'brighter and more precise.'
LG has also included a new 'Self-Healing' coating on the back cover, an elastic coating that supposedly has the ability to "recover from the daily wear-and-tear scratches and nicks that un-cased smartphones are likely to receive."
