Even though most of us still debate if curved displays are really something we need, Samsung and LG are still working in bringing us the technology, and we’ve seen it officially in devices like the Galaxy Round. LG’s stab at a curved display had only made the light of day in leaks, and with the positive news that this G Flex was at least curved in a way that made holding the phone to your ear more ergonomic, but again, these were just leaks.
Yesterday, however, the LG G Flex made a surprising debut on both photos and video, and believe it or not, even on Argentinean TV! Tech Journalist Federico Ini from Telefe Noticias in Argentina has apparently obtained a prototype of the device, and he decided he couldn’t keep it a secret. He brought it to his news program and decided to compare it against other existing smartphones in the market.
As it turns out, this is not just a curved LG G2. They retain similarities in specs and design, and even in the fact that the G Flex also has the control buttons in the back. Where they differ is that the G Flex is bigger, with a 6-inch OLED display, so I guess the curved display should help in using a phone that big in some way. We expect this device to go official next month, so let’s see how many more land on national television before that.
