LG G Flex appears in the flesh with a video hands-on: curved phone has buttons on the back

It is curved from top to bottom, just as we heard, not sideways like the Galaxy Round, but bears a signature LG design otherwise. Yes, that means buttons on the back, like on the LG G2, and we are also noticing what could be a dual color LED flash, similar to the iPhone 5s, which should aid with natural skin tone when taking pics.
phone, like on the G2, remains to be seen. For now, LG representative has commented that they should look into the device and can't gauge for its credibility, but it looks pretty real to us, and, besides, that's exactly the kind of talk one can expect from the PR department on leaked units.Whether or not that means we will also have optical image stabilization on the
Speculation is that the G Flex should replicate those curved screens you've seen in your local cinema that make watching movies much more immersive due to the change in perspective. How's that going to be on a 6" phone turned in landscape, remains to be seen next month, when the G Flex will be officially announced.

come on what's the use of being flexible if you're just curving those displays? they're still fixed in place like any traditional display on a mobile device. still haven't found the right application? still, i commend lg for bending the display that way. it emulates a curved tv that is usable in landscape mode. samsung's curve is just plain stupid.

i think it wouldve have been really stupid if LG didnt make the phone with back buttons. after all the hoo hah they made about how back buttons are better on a bigger screen device, if this 6" phone came with regular side buttons, it will just throw LG's own statements down the drain

Yo, I could have sworn my Galaxy Nexus had a slightly curved display. This one is obviously curved a lot more, but it isn't brand new.
