LG Flex in pics and video, don’t expect a UK release

LG Flex in pics and video, don’t expect a UK releaseSamsung launched the Galaxy Round a few weeks ago, a giant smartphone curved around the y-axis, the logic being that if feels super-comfy when held in portrait. Hmm.

South Korean rivals LG are taking a perpendicular approach, bending their Flex smartphone around the horizontal, meaning it’ll naturally curve around your face while on calls. As we await the official launch, we’re seeing the LG Flex in pics and video.

Of course, we treated our eyeballs to some leaked LG Flex press renders just over a week ago, conveniently dropping shortly after the Samsung Galaxy Round announcement.

The latest LG Flex pics show the banana-like phone in all its curvy glory, with LG G2-style volume buttons on the rear, just below the camera.

Incidentally, the LG Flex camera will be of the 13MP variety, putting it on par with the Samsung Galaxy Round and the flagship LG G2.

Further LG Flex specs are elusive for now, though the display is again said to measure 6in diagonally, presumably with full 1080p HD, and we wouldn’t be surprised to find a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and 2-3GB of RAM on the inside.

For the full range of LG Flex pics, head over to The Verge. The LG Flex video appears on Argentinean site telefe noticias.

I've been told that the Flex will launch in the UK around the same time as in Korea.

Basically there isn't going to be a massive gap between release dates like with Samsung.

Maybe it's just me but don't most people with smartphones use their phone more for consuming media than actually making calls?
I think Samsung got it right, if you're going to have the screen/handset curved then it needs to be comfortable to hold and easy to view.
