The G Flex might be LG's worst kept secret to date.
We've heard quite a bit about LG's G Flex smartphone over the last couple of weeks. Most recently, we got a glimpse of renders of the device, which gave us a little peek at what this unique device is going to look like. But what about a look at the real thing? The latest leak is an actual video of LG's G Flex curved phone in the flesh.
According to The Verge, this video is from Argentinian broadcaster Telefe, which actually managed to obtain a G Flex (though it's not clear how they got their in-studio hands on ahead of LG's confirmation of the device's existence). If that weren't enough to get you excited, the Verge also has a gallery of leaked images from journalist Federico Ini, who works for Telefe. You can check those out here.
Other than the fact that the phone will have a curved 6-inch OLED display, the details regarding specs for this phone are thin on the ground. Given it's release schedule (it's supposedly coming in November), we'd warrant the phone is going to come with Android 4.4 KitKat, though obviously that's just speculation at this point.
The G Flex differs from Samsung's Galaxy Round in the way that it is curved. Samsung's device is curved side-to-side. It looks like the horizontal curve would sit neatly in the palm of your hand. Meanwhile, LG's G Flex is curved top-to-bottom, or vertically and looks like it was built to sit flush against your cheek while you talk. Specswise, the Galaxy Round features a 5.7 inch 1080p Super AMOLED display powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC (MSM 8974) clocked at 2.3 GHz, 3 GB of RAM and a 2800 mAh battery. The device also provides 32 GB of internal storage, and a microSD card slot for up to 64 GB of additional storage. So while we don't know what's going on under the hood of the G Flex just yet, at least we know what it's up against.
