(DNA : Daily News & Analysis (India) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) "LG's most awaited G Flex curved display smartphone was on Friday launched in India. The phone will be available for Rs69,999.
The phone is now one of most expensive smartphones available in the Indian market as it has beaten the Apple iPhone 5s, Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and HTC One Max.
LG launched its first curved display smartphone in October 2013 and it was sold only in South Korea initially.
With Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean-based G Flex is powered by a quad-core 2.26GHz Snapdragon 800 (MSM8974) processor with an Adreno 330 GPU, and 2GB of RAM.
The phone has a 13-megapixel rear camera, and a 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera. The G Flex is powered by a 3,500mAh battery, weighs 177 grams, and is 7.9mm at its thinnest, while being 8.7mm at its thickest.
As for the 6-inch curved display, LG has used a curved OLED panel, which is also built on plastic substrates instead of glass, supposedly giving the phone better durability.
LG has also included a new 'self-healing' coating on the back cover, an elastic coating that supposedly has the ability to recover from the daily wear-and-tear scratches and nicks that un-cased smartphones are likely to receive. ""
