LG G Flex launch details the curved phone's unique features

0. phoneArena 14 Nov 2013, 03:55 posted on

The new things we are learning from the launch presentation are that the G Flex can withstand up to 40 kilos of pressure when lying face down, thanks to the flexible display and battery, which probably means you can sit with it in your back pocket without cracking the screen...

As far as I could translate those signs, it's also written about self-healing back cover (picture 4 says that literally, picture 5 shows the effect), swing-lock something, dual-window with drag&drop (12), knock-on feature (19), sapphire lenses and back keys (20), 100 cycles of pressing it with the weight of 40kg doesn't change the shape (23), picture 26 compares original battery and it's structural deformation after folding with their battery stack and folding method, showing stabillity and no deformation.

At least thumb me up for the time I've wasted in dictionaries.

Handling 40kilo weight on it is a big plus point.

I've seen a vid where someone presses it flat and bends it straight, putting quite much of an effort into it but nothing really happens to the maltreated phone. That's one durable phone.
And it doesn't even get scratched unless you take a knife and make sure it's done well.

This is awesome! Unfortunately Malaysia launch is so slow! Even the flagship LG G2 not yet launched in Malaysia!

Wow since Samsung owns the patent on split screen for mobile, it will be interesting if LG is going to get sued for this or if they are just paying them per phone sold. That's why we've never seen another manufacturer have it, till now, and LG and Sony had their mini apps

From googling I see that 40 kilos is 80 some lbs and I weigh a bit more than that lol.

When you sit normally keeping that in your back pocket, only a fraction of your overall weight is pressed on the phone. 40kg/88lbs sounds more than enough.

Unless your butt is 6 inches in diameter.
But usually the heavier you are the bigger butt you have, right.

Interesting, I love LG, but the split window screen is definitely a straight copy from Samsung if the functionality is the same.

I knew LG would be the first to copy Samsung with their multi window
