LG mobiles has announced that their latest innovation the LG G Flex handset with curved flexible display with a self healing back cover will be available in India in February 2014, for a price tag of approx Rs. 60,000.
The price may seem a lot but considering the special features it may be worth it, and as the technology progresses it will become cheaper with time. The LG G Flex was in the news for quite some time especially for its curvy display that’s flexible too and the rear back cover that has the tendency to heal itself from minor scratches.
The G Flex sails on Android 4.2.2 OS with 2GB RAM and 32GB storage. There is no external card support. The curved P-OLED screen is 6 inches supporting resolution of 1280×720 pixels. The handset houses a 13MP rear AF camera with LED flash and front 2.1MP camera. The rear camera can record 1080p videos at 60fps where as the front camera can record the same in 30fps.
This handset is powered by MSM8974 Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 chipset (2.26GHz quad core Krait 400 + Adreno 330 GPU). There are magnetic, gyro, accelerometer and proximity sensors. Other features are (probably 4G), 3G, 2G, Wi-Fi (a/b/g/n/ac), GPS with GLONASS/A-GPS, NFC and Bluetooth 4.0. There is a non-removable battery of 3500 mAh capacity.
Though the specs are good we hope LG upgrades the OS from 4.2 to the latest available before launching the handset in India.
