G Flex Smartphones Available Next Month in Europe and U.S.

G Flex Smartphones Available Next Month in Europe and U.S.
South Korea’s LG Electronics will begin selling its G Flex curved-screen smartphones, or phablets, in 20 European markets beginning next month, and they will soon also become available in the U.S. for around $299.00.

AT&T is currently taking pre-orders for the G Flex phones, but you have to sign up for a two-year contract  with them to get the phone. Other telecommunications carriers  in the U.S. are expected to follow suit and offer the G-Flex smartphones by January 31, 2014.

LG Electronics G-Flex smartphones are considered to be the first step to the creation of fully flexible products. They will be available beginning next month in Italy, Sweden, France, Austria, Britain, and Germany, among other European countries. The vertical axis of the handset of the G Flex smartphones are curved, which is meant to make it more comfortable and follow the contours your face. According to LS, the curve will also provide consumers an immersive viewing experience.

Samsung tried launching a curved-screen smartphone, the Galaxy Round, this past October. However, consumers were less than impressed with the smartphone, and sales were dismal.

When it comes to smartphones, display technology is moving towards the direction of having flexible, bendable panels that can be folded or rolled.

Manufacturers of smartphones want to spur consumer interest as much as possible in their devices. The G Flex smartphone, LS Electronics hopes, will be a hit with consumers who are always striving to have the latest tech devices, despite its rather high price tag.

The LG Electronics G Flex smartphone has been available since October, but only in Asia. It was initially sold only in Korea, then it began to be sold in Hong Kong, and finally it became available in Singapore.

What are some other features of the LG Electronics new G Flex smartphone?

Besides its curved screen, the G Flex smartphone offers several other features which will appeal to consumers. The G Flex also has the ability to heal itself, to an extent. If the rear cover gets scratched, for example, in just a few minutes the scratches will fade out and disappear.

The G Flex smartphone has 2 GB of RAM, a 2.3 GHz quad-core CPU, and a specially-made 3500 mAh curved battery. One drawback is that the six inch screen, while fairly large, has a maximum resolution of 1280×720.

The LG Electronics G Flex smartphone, soon to be available in Europe and the United States, might be successful in starting a trend towards everyone wanting to own smartphones with curved screens.

Having a smartphone which can heal itself if it gets minor scratches is sure to be another feature of the G Flex smartphone which US consumers will love. Smartphones that fold or roll up might be the next step in the evolution of smartphones. If you think you might be interested in getting one of the new G Flex smartphones when they become available in the U.S., please let me know below in the comments area.
