LG_G_Flex-3_large_verge_medium_landscape

LG's curvalicious smartphone made the jump straight from Asia to North America, but now it's going to cover some of the ground in between. Starting next month, the G Flex will start arriving in Europe. It is expected to be on sale in more than 20 nations in short order.

The main selling point of this device is, of course, the 6-inch curved P-OLED screen. It's only 720p, but the rest of the specs are top-of-the-line. The phone packs a Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, and a 3500mAh battery.

The G Flex deployment will be starting with the UK, Germany, France, Italy, Sweden and Austria. LG didn't mention any other countries by name, but 20 is a pretty reasonable number.

    LG definitely has Samsung beaten in this round of curved displays. Samsung made clear they wanted to use the Galaxy Round as a beta run but looks like LG has the tech figured out as they are ready to push for a global release.

      We'll see how it turns out.
      Maybe Samsung's right about the tech being in beta stage still. I'm not sure how serious those bubbles in G Flex displays were, but it better not occur on LG G Flexes globally. That would be a disaster for LG.

    Dat photo in the article. They should've used about 20 LG G Flexes and made a full circle. Just 3 don't quite cut it.

    On another note, wonder when OEMs will start manufacturing cylindrical, conical, spherical, rectangular parallelopiped, tetrahedral and finally, DICK-shaped screens. THEN it'll really be fun. :/
