    So this is kind of dumb, right? I mean, everyone and his mother geeky brother is jazzed for the arrival of the Nexus 5. It's a device so hotly anticipated it's been leaked about 40 million times and its projected release date has come and gone three times a week since June [citation needed]. Whenever it finally lands, it will represent the cream of the crop in the pure-Google experience, a Nexus handheld with no rival. With all this New Hotness just around the corner, and as one of the hordes of tech bloggers always complaining about the ever-thickening coat of paint OEMs keep slathering ...

    Two smartphones with curved displays have been unleashed upon us recently and, while they both have the curved attribute in common for their displays, they are very different in execution and overall philosophy. First there was the Samsung Galaxy Round, a powerful smartphone with a curved screen, from side to side, horizontally. Samsung implemented some software bits that take advantage of the phone "rocking" to the sides, but we won't go into specific software and hardware specs details. On the other hand, we have the newcomer, the LG G Flex, which also has a curved screen, but this time, ...

    We've seen the LG G Flex make its unofficial debut recently but today the South Korean manufacturer decided to officially unveil its first curved-screen featuring smartphone. Unlike the Samsung Galaxy Round, that has a screen curved towards the edges, the LG G Flex has a curved screen from top to bottom. Key features of the phone are the flexible OLED screen of 6-inches with a 720p resolution, a quad-core 2.26GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel camera, as well as the 3,500 mAh battery. According to LG, using such a curved display has its advantages: aside ...

    The curved-screen smartphone is upon us, and after Samsung got the ball rolling with the Galaxy Round, we got to see LG with its G Flex. While we got an unofficial look at the phone earlier this week, the question of its exact hardware makeup has eluded us. There was talk about the G Flex sharing much in common with the G2, and back when we were still calling the model the LG Z – assuming these really are the same device – there was the possibility that this big, curved display could keep the G2's 1080p resolution. As we wait to see LG confirm the G Flex, we're learning a little more ...

    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 ...

    Remember way back when we first started hearing about flexible displays? We saw all kinds of cool displays at trade shows demonstrating how screens could curve and bend and flex. We were all wowed! Then a few of us started reeling the conversation back towards reality. Batteries, we said, were still fairly large and bulky, and didn't bend at all. Chips and circuit boards are also pretty rigid. Then that all changed when we started seeing demos for, you guessed it, flexible batteries. This renewed the public's desire to have a flexible, perhaps even a "roll-up" smartphone or tablet. Though ...

    The G Flex is expected to be LG's answer to Samsung's Galaxy Round, the phone with curved display recently launched. We've heard about the G Flex at the beginning of the month and now, two alleged leaked press renders, try to anticipate the phone's looks. Opposed to the Galaxy Round, which has a curved screen from side-to-side, LG's future possible solution curves the phone from top to bottom. As you can see in the images above and below, claimed to be the real deal, the phone will launch rather curved, next month, according to the report, without any pricing or specification details ...

    Yesterday, when we heard about LG's plans for a smartphone with a flexible display, a certain "Z" moniker was rumored for the phone which will allegedly sport a 1080p resolution flexible display and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor. Today we're hearing rumors of a certain LG G Flex phablet, which would be, according to six-inch screen size rumors, be a phablet. Whether the Z above and the G Flex are one and the same, or different products altogether, is yet, unknown. This G Flex should, according to "source familiar with the matter", see the light of day in November, though the date can ...
