LG Flex event to be held on November 5th, launch starts in mid-November

Days after officially announcing the LG Flex, the company's first curved screen phone (and the world's second), it would appear that the South Korea-based manufacturer is already prepping the stage for an official event. Reports out of Korean media claim that press invites are already on their way, and the date under question is November 5th. The LG Flex is said to launch at some point in mid-November for the local market first, followed by a probable expansion outwards.


We're no strangers to fanfare, and we sure hope LG delivers. After all, seeing as a curved phone is, at this point, hardly anything more than a gimmick, we'd expect the company to at least have one hell of a show readied. Then, who knows, perhaps we're about to be amazed by some other aspect of the LG Flex. Perhaps that drummed up “self-healing” coating of the back-plating on the Flex? We sure would like to hear a whole lot about that, and whether it bears any resemblance to a similar tech we've known about for a while now.


In case you somehow missed the flurry of publications around LG's curvy Flex, then you can check out our specs database right here. Headliners include a Snapdragon 800 chipset, 2GB of RAM, a 6-inch P-OLED curved screen, 13MP shooter and a massive 3500mAh battery.

You must have fell and bumped your head.

LG built the Nexus 5 out of the scraps left over from the LG Flex.

Deal with it.

Don't try to correct someone unless you have a clue about what you're referring to. How could LG build the Nexus 5, a phone that is already completed, although unannounced out of a phone that's pretty much in the same stage of production? Perhaps you meant the G2? Although, the G2 & the Nexus 5 share so little in common that it could argued that that is also not the case. Do us all a favor and go back to spouting your nonsense on Nokia articles.

A nice phone
And a good price
To Nexus Hello
To iPhone goodbye

No more problems
Now things are clear
We are out of trouble
The Nexus is here!

Hmm.. I was trying to decide between the Nexus 5 and LG G2.. But now I may wait a little to see what the LG Flex brings.

If you're on Verizon, don't expect the LG G2 or any other Android phone to EVER have the latest and greatest Google software. The G2 and N5 have similar specs, what you should ask is how important is it for you to have the latest Google OS on your phone and whether you want to deal with LG's gawky, cartoon-ish skin on top of Android.
