LG announced its G Flex, the company's new phone with a 6" curved OLED screen with 720p resolution. The device weighs 177g and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, it features 2GB RAM and a 13MP digicam. Besides the curved display, one of the other novelty features of the G Flex is the "self-healing" back cover. LG claims the cover's self-healing coating can repair hairline scratches "within minutes". Exact details on how this feature works aren't available though.
In comparison to Samsung's Galaxy Round, the screen on the G Flex arcs from top to bottom, not side-to-side, which at least makes a little more sense to us, hopefully fitting in better to the curvature of the users' face. We're yet to handle either curved phone IRL just yet, however, when we'll be able to offer up a better perspective on how both devices actually feel.
