They haven’t been a premier smartphone provider for long, but this play might have enough oomph to bring them into the mix. Then again, it may just be a fad. We’ll let the sales speak for themselves.
LG has admitted that “bendable and unbreakable” smartphone displays are already in production, and we’ve heard plenty of rumors about a device known as the G Flex which features the new tech. Engadget has come across a trio of renders of the upcoming device, and we have learned from our sources that it will be coming out sometime next month — pricing and availability (as well as hard specs) are as of yet unknown, however. As you can see in the images (above and below), the G Flex offers a curved display, but LG’s version approaches it at a literally different angle from the Galaxy Round that was announced last week: instead of it curving from left to right, the G Flex goes orthogonally from top to bottom. We’ll update you with more information and images as we get closer to the device’s launch.
