With Samsung and LG at loggerheads on who will come with the first release of a curved display smartphone and Samsung winning the battle, leaks are already out on the LG phone which is supposed to be released on next month.
Though nothing much have been revealed about the specifications of LG’s ‘G Flex’, the leaks mainly includes photos of the alleged smartphone. The beautifully concave phone from the vertical angle is said to have a radius of 700mm and instead of glass, the OLED panel is manufactured on plastic substrates. According to other sources of LG, the 0.44mm thin and 7.2g weighing smartphone will bring "a world of design innovations in the smartphone market".
According to a statement given last week by Dr. Sang Deog Yeo, Executive Vice-president and Chief Technology Officer of LG Display, "The flexible display market is expected to grow quickly as this technology is expected to expand further into diverse applications including automotive displays, tablets and wearable devices. Our goal is to take an early lead in the flexible display market by introducing new products with enhanced performance and differentiated designs next year."
So while Samsung Galaxy has introduced the horizontal roundness and LG, the vertical one, the LG smartphone appears to be more appealing and ergonomic. However, the decision rests on the buyers when the ‘LG G Flex’ will be in the market.
