While LG’s first flexible display smartphone – dubbed as the LG G Flex – is not official yet, it somehow managed to appear in the news in Argentina.
As you can see in the image gallery and video below, the G Flex looks pretty much like the handset we saw a few days ago in a few leaked press renders (see image above).
According to Telefe, the device has a 6-inch display, has its buttons placed on the back, G2 style, and is meant to be used to consume content in landscape mode. That explains why its curvature is similar to some LG and Samsung OLED TV models.
Furthermore, the G Flex will supposedly launch next month in South Korea, “with no release planned for the U.S., Europe or Latin America.”
Interestingly, when The Verge contacted LG for further comment, the company was not sure whether the phone shown on Argentinian TV was indeed the “real thing,” or not.
In addition to the LG G Flex, there’s one other smartphone with a curved display ready to hit at least one market, the Samsung Galaxy Round, which will also be available in limited numbers.

Curve doesn’t look as bad as it did in previous renders…the one with the hand looks do-able. Will give this a try once it get launched….if it gets launched.
Do you live in South-Korea or didn’t you read the whole article?
….once and if it is launched!!!!
wow i like the phone i like the phone !!!
its a nice device n doesn’t look big also :)
but too costly for me :(
why do you write the same thing twice same thing twice??
It was a mistake.I posted it 1st n refreshed the page.comment did not show up
So I posted again n both showed up
in the second comment you wrote “i lyk the fone” TWICE
I was excited..
I really liked the phone :-)

Reminds me of another “curved” phone that ended up being much more dramatic in concept.
what is this
It was the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.

I hate glossy devices, looks cheap.
This is the gimmicks of all gimmicks. It is too thick, I don’t know why they use the flex name, you can’t sit on it and flex it, typing on a flat surface would be rocking crazy, I’m underwhelemed and don’t get why they spend time to do this.
Yeah well no one really gives a crap what you think.
Is that a dual flash that I see by the rear camera?
Excellent ! Finally I’ll be able to pour tea onto my phone !
I HAVE A GALAXY NEXUS WITH CURVED DISPLAY/DESIGN…. BUT WITH A BIG CURVE MAY BE NOT CONFORTABLE FOR THE BAG OF MY JEANS
The galaxy nexus has the digitizer curved not the screen
The curve is not enough
Stop calling it “flexible display” already, it’s curved.
This looks cool, but Im looking forward to LG’s Xperia ZU challenger.
I don’t think these flex or more accurate curved display experiment with current market would succeed because we really don’t require these phones.
Even a really flexible phone can make place for itself ,but a curved phone isn’t useful at this time for anyone. .
Recently I was extremely low on money and debts were eating me from all sides! That was UNTIL I decided to make money on the internet. I went to surveymoneymaker dot net, and started filling in surveys for cash, and surely I’ve been far more able to pay my bills!! I’m so glad, I did this! – pry1
