Video promo for the LG G Flex calls the phone a mobile IMAX theater; images show off accessories
A promotional video for the LG G Flex has been spotted in Korea, LG's home country. The curved smartphone is scheduled to be released in the region on Tuesday. The video shows off the curved 6 inch screen from almost every angle you can imagine. Unlike the Samsung Galaxy Round, which curves in on the sides, the LG G Flex curves in from the top and bottom of the screen.

What is interesting is the characterization of the phone as a mobile IMAX theater which is not only shown in the video, it is mentioned in a promotional ad for SK Telecom (which you will find in the slideshow below). The same ad also shows how the phone is flexible. No, it is not malleable and you can't fold it into a small post-it note sized handset. But we recently passed along a video that showed how by applying pressure to the phone, it will flex.

In addition to the Korean promo video, some images were discovered on an website in Korea that show off some of the accessories that LG will have available for the handset including the Quick Window Case, and the Vest Case which seems to protect the back of the device only. The third accessory is a 16GB USB flash drive.

With talk that the LG G Flex is going to have a global release, there is hope for those in the states who have been fascinated by the model.

Thanks, Anonymous Tipster!

Well, even though it's not actually flexible, it is virtually unbreakable. Unless someone decides to shoot it with a sniper rifle like they did with the iPad Air... It's a good thing they added OTG as well, don't see many phones around these days with that feature.

noting against LG. with all honesty i don't see this phone gaining popularity LG should have skipped this phone went straight to real flexible bendable phones. this phone doesn't interest me in anyway.

This phone is just a stepping stone for future flexible phones. By selling it, they can actually get customer feedback and improve. Don't forget the OG iPhone didn't even have WiFi, should they have skipped that too?

I like this phone. Reminds of the old flip phones. Also this phone contours to the face.

much better that the Galaxy Round, which I would say is just horrible.

Took me less than a day to get used to the G2 buttons. I'm finding when I pull my phone out to use it, my index finger is naturally right there to turn it on.
