LG G4 to come with a curved display at a subtle 3000mm radius

LG G4 to come with a curved display at a subtle 3000mm radius
Those leaks hinting at a curved LG G4 display might bear fruit, after all, if a report out of the Korean mediascape is to be believed. Upon stating how the G4 will have to clash directly with the Galaxy S6, and going through the expected specs and design Rolodex, like a record F1.8 lens aperture, and a genuine leather back cover for the G4, the publication casually mentions that its screen is going to be curved, and even cites the exact curvature radius of 3000mm. LG already has midrangers with this subtle 3000mm curvature on the market, dubbed LG Magna and LG Spirit, so this speculation is utterly believable.

3000mm might sound like a lot, but actually means that the display is only slightly curved along the Y-axis. The bendy LG G Flex 2 sports a much more drastic vertical curvature of 700mm, for instance, while the Samsung Galaxy Round comes bent at a 400mm radius, but on the shorter, horizontal side. All of this means that the LG G4 will likely come a tad curved along its height, which would bode well for both grip ergonomics, and drop test endurance, as the impact will be limited by the curvature, instead of the phone falling flat on its face.

Doesn't shorter curvature radius mean more curve. A flat panel has a curvature radius of infinity, the smaller the curvature radius is, the more curved. I don't think it's gonna happen. The curve is too much. Also, G4 is confirmed to use an IPS panel. So that seems like fake rumour at best.

Love reading your comments. And yes , they are making rumours to make people wait their unveil instead of buying gs6 now. Want curve ? Go for GS6 Edge.

Same here. He knows what he is talking about and is one of the few ones who really talks tech. Many on this site call themselves "tech guys" but they never talk about tech, they just show their love to a certain company. I can never claim to be a tech guy, because the best i can do is compare spec sheets.

You know their Magna and Spirit phones are curved with IPS? And that there are curved LED TVs from both Samsung and LG?

Those are very very subtle curves. A 300 mm curve isn't possible with IPS unless they change the backlighting matrix. They'll have to go with P OLED for a 300 mm curve. Edit: they changed the article. It's 3000 mm now.

yeah absolutely a 300 mm radius would make it more curved than gflex2 and i cant stop laughing imagining how the phone would look probably 3/4th of a cylinder I think it meant curvature depth of 300 mm at centre of screen

So curved screen doesnt mean no temper glass screen protectors? Or is the top flat and below is curved?

Uhm, wouldnt a 300mm curve be much sharper than 700mm?

Looks like the article was corrected to 3000mm. I, too, couldn't figure out how a 300mm radius curve was less curved than the larger amounts. 3000mm makes much more sense.
