LG F340 benchmarked, could be the G Flex curved screen flagship
The LG G Flex handset is nearing release as the first commercially available phone with bendable OLED display, and its version for the Korean LG U+ carrier might just have been logged over at the GFX graphics benchmark database. The LG Vu 3 is F300, while the flagship G2 is F320, so this one might be LG's biggest surprise for the year.

Not that you'd care about the specs on a flexible display phone too much (it bends!), but LG has equipped it with the not too shabby Snapdragon 800 chipset and Adreno 330 graphics processor. All that GPU prowess will be forced onto an unsuspecting OLED display, listed with 720x1280 pixels of resolution, but it won't be the pixel count that matters here, rather the plastic instead of glass substrate the panel will carry, allowing for the curved shape of the G Flex.



LG's bendable phone is codenamed Z internally, and references to that letter can be found throughout the code logged into the benchmark database, like the "z_lgu_kr" string, for instance, which indicates this could be the LG Z aka G Flex version for the Korean U+ carrier. LG promised it will have a curved screen device on market before Samsung, and it might very well live to that promise.
