Korean media confirms LG G Flex for next month, LG-made Nexus 5 by the end of October
Korean publication with good track record of reporting on the moves of fellow countrymen Samsung and LG, is now confirming in a lengthy article that LG is indeed going to launch its flexible OLED smartphone in November.

Next month we are apparently going to see the LG G Flex launched on all three major Korean carriers, unlike the Galaxy Round and its limited release. Moreover, as far as we grasped from the translation, LG will be rolling its "products" that the article is about, to global carriers as well, which might mean the G Flex will see the light of day outside of Korea, unlike the proof-of-concept nature of the Samsung Galaxy Round.

The 6" flexible OLED screen is curved top to bottom, says the publication, and the idea is that when you turn it in landscape mode while watching videos, you get an experience similar to those non-flat cinema screens that are more immersive and bring different perspective.

The article also mentions that November will see a Firefox OS phone announced by LG, so it might be on a joint event with the G Flex, but the thing that grabbed our attention most was the clear confirmation about an LG-made Nexus 5 release date. "Nexus 5 developed by LG Electronics will be released through Google during this month," says the report, so not much left to wait now.

Here comes all of the comments about a curved device being pointless and stupid by people who somehow think they know what it would be like before such a device is even announced or released.

As of now, I can only say it is curved rather than flexible. The display may be flexible but the phone isn't.

It is what i´m thinking, whats the diference between a flexible and a curved display? because the phone from the flex screen probably wont bend...

Didn't the early Nexus S have a curved display? What about the Galaxy Nexus? At the time, that's what seemed the most appealing to me. They're only making all these "fresh" comebacks to curved devices to show-off and roadtest their new, flexible display tech.

Once again, I repeat: The flexibility of the phone's screen is mainly for its durability, not for the zomgicanbendthisshiznitandthrowitonafieldofdiamond​s factor (well, at least not yet). Calm your tits, gals.
