LG G Flex gets November 12th release date in Korea
The LG G Flex, LG's curved handset, will be launched in Korea starting on November 12th. With a curve on the top and bottom of the handset, the LG G Flex really does flex when pressure is applied to it as we showed you with a 14 second video. The phone is priced at 999,900 Korean Won which works out to $940 U.S.Dollars.

The curved screen measures 6 inches and with resolution of 720 x 1280, pixel density works out to 245ppi. A quad-core 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU powers the handset, while the Adreno 330 GPU takes care of graphics. 2GB of RAM is on board and there is 32GB of native storage. There is no microSD slot on the phone, which has back and front snappers of 13MP and 2.1MP respectively. With such a large screen, you need a pretty hefty battery and LG does not disappoint as a 3500mAh cell keeps the lights on. Android 4.2.2 is pre-installed as is the UX UI. A self-healing back cover repairs hairline scratches.

On Tuesday, an LG spkesman said that a global LG G Flex announcement is in the works. After the launch in Korea next week, the LG G Flex moves to Europe where the phone is expected to be available via Orange France next month. For those in the U.S. who have their mind set on buying this model, if it does happen, it looks like it would take place after the holiday season.
