LG G Flex Curved Smartphone Follows Samsung’s Lead Dylan Duarte October 14, 2013 Last week we posted news of the Galaxy Round, Samsung’s upcoming curved smartphone. LG is banking on the idea that people actually want curved smartphones and they’re quickly following Samsung’s lead with the LG G Flex, which curves vertically as opposed to horizontally. Yes, LG is making a bold play by not only developing a curved phone of their own, but changing the direction of the curve. Revolutionary. Jaw-dropping. The G Flex will supposedly offer a 6-inch display, which is just slightly larger than the Galaxy Round’s 5.7-inch screen. The rest of the details are unknown at this point. I’ll admit that I’m curious to try the Galaxy Round or G Flex just to see if the curve adds any significant comfort, but I do think that LG is jumping the gun in copying a technique that’s completely unproven at this point. via Tech Crunch Share This With The World!
