LG has announced that the LG G Flex is now rolling out on a global scale. The early days won’t see a widespread rollout, with only a few Asian countries getting in on the fun. This includes folks in Singapore on December 8th, and Hong Kong on December 13th. LG didn’t have specific dates for other regions, but they did mention we should be seeing the device launch in Europe before the end of January.
The LG G Flex is the company’s first flexible smartphone that has been proven to be quite durable. Not only can it bend, twist and turn without breaking, but its back cover can take quite the beating and heal itself within seconds or minutes. You needn’t look any further than the video at this link to see just how strong this smartphone is supposed to be.
The phone isn’t bad under the hood either, with the following specs making up its core:
- 2.26 GHz Quad-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 (MSM 8974)
- GPU: Adreno 330, 450MHz
- 6-inch screen
- HD resolution (1280 x 720), Curved P-OLED (Real RGB)
- 2GB RAM
- 32GB Storage
- 13.0MP rear camera
- 2.1MP front camera
- 3,500mAh battery
- Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2
- Bluetooth 4.0
- USB 3.0
- WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac
We’ll be looking forward to its arrival to the rest of the world in the first quarter of 2014, but for now just know that some lucky customers, somewhere, will soon be getting their hands on one of the most interesting phones LG’s ever made.
