Android 4.4 KitKat update rolling out to LG's G Flex (only in Korea for now)

LG is now offering an official Android 4.4 KitKat update for its curved G Flex smartphone in South Korea. All three Korean variants of the G Flex are getting KitKat: LG F340S, LG F340K, and LG F340L.

The update includes the new Knock Code screen unlocking feature that LG has been heavily promoting since last month (the feature is already available on newer handsets, starting with the LG G Pro 2). What the update doesn’t seem to include is support for 4K video. But maybe this will be available when the KitKat update arrives on the international version of the G Flex? We can’t know for sure, but we’ll certainly keep you posted.

The G Flex was released by LG in November last year as its first smartphone to feature a curved, flexible display. The handset can be purchased in many markets around the world, including in the US - where we're hoping to see it getting KitKat soon.

I reckon 4K videos from phone camera don't actually look that much better than 1080p

Bought the G flex 2 days ago really great phone, beautiful screen but needs more resolution and more PPI, the battery life is great plus G flex it's the best Android device when it comes to gaming performance due to the lower resolution graphics still looks great. Hope KitKat come soon to G flex with some camera improvement specially with low light improvement .
