Now, Chinese publication 3G.CN has published an invitation from LG for a G Flex event scheduled on December 3 in Hong Kong, where the company may announce global availability details, apart from Hong Kong launch details.
LG has already confirmed that it will launch the G Flex in France via mobile carrier, Orange, in December. However, no pricing details were revealed for France.
The South Korean manufacturer can also be expected to rollout the G Flex smartphone in more markets sometime later, as it could help the maker gain lead in nascent curved display smartphone market.
Recently, a report claimed that LG has been working on a successor to the G Flex curved display smartphone, one that would sport better bendable features. The report revealed that the alleged G Flex successor, thought to be dubbed G Flex 2, would come with special hard rubber body allowing it to bend up to a 90 degree angle.
Further, the report mentioned that the alleged G Flex 2 would include a flexible battery inside, although there was no word on the removable battery. The report also speculated that LG might launch the second smartphone in its G Flex series in Q2 2014.
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.
