Just like the flagship G2, the G Flex is powered by a quad-core 2.26 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor. The speedy processor is backed by 2 gigs of RAM and 32 gigs of internal storage. And providing the juice, you have a non-removable 3500 mAh Lithium Polymer battery.
Then things start to get a little funny. Rather than the G2′s 5.2″ 1080p IPS display, the G Flex features a 6″ curved OLED panel running at 720p resolution. While the G Flex takes a noticeable hit in resolution and PPI (down to 245 from 424), the screen has been shown to survive being flattened out of its original curved shape. And finally, the G Flex also features a unique self-healing back that is able to recuperate from minor scratches.
Are you excited about the G Flex? Will the device’s self healing back win you over or is that screen simply too large for its given resolution? Will it blend? Let us know in the comments below, and don’t forget to head over to the newly created LG G Flex Forum to get in on the discussion_________
