In recent days, we have heard a lot about the LG G Flex – LG’s first ever Android powered phone with a curved display. LG is calling it the ‘world’s first ‘real’ curved display smartphone’ – as it is curved vertically from top to bottom which offers a rich voice and sound quality when making phone calls. We saw HD pictures of the early model of it, although the last version comes with few ‘unique’ surprises.

About the specs of the LG G Flex, it features Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, a 2.26GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, a 13MP camera with a 2.1MP front-facing camera, 3,500 mAh battery, and also it is LTE-enabled. Also it features rear control buttons just like the LG G2.

Now let’s talk about the ‘unique’ surprises. LG G Flex is ‘Wolverine’ of the Android smartphones, as LG claims that it features a ‘self-healing’ back cover: a special protective film on the back cover is designed to get rid of scratches on the phone within minutes. LG is launching it in their hometown i.e. Korea only for now, so we really hope to see an international announcement sooner or later.

So which one are you planning to get your hands on, LG G Flex or Samsung Galaxy Round? Tell us about it in the comment box below.
