LG G Flex stays startlingly true to its name, actually flexes [Video]

You might have thought LG has revealed all that you need to know about the G Flex, but there’s one thing the South Korean giant has omitted from its press releases. It’s the fact that the new and upcoming smartphone possesses the ability to actually change its shape and come back to normal again.

What can be seen in the video below is the LG G Flex being pressed down upon and stretched out to demonstrate the hitherto unnoticed feature of the device. This 14-second clip comes via an Engadget source who has managed to get their hands on the smartphone somehow.

The G Flex carries on it a flexible P-OLED capacitive touchscreen that’s accompanied by a 6-inch 720 x 1280 pixel display. Sized at 160.5mm x 81.6mm x 8.7mm, it weighs in at 177 grams. Its runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset which bears on it a 2.26GHz quad core Krait 400 CPU and an Adreno 330 GPU.

The Android v4.2.2 OS makes its way onto the device, and its operations are back by 2GB worth of RAM. Furthermore, 32GB of memory has been infused into the LG G Flex, but there’s no scope for further expansions since it does not feature a microSD card slot.

A 13 MP rear camera has also been granted to the handset along with a 2.1MP front snapper. And what keeps it going is a 3500mAh Li-Po battery. The handset even plays home to a new ‘self-healing’ coating which boasts of the ability to automatically repair hairline scratches on its rear surface.

We’ll have more on the availability and pricing details of the LG G Flex when this information is let out officially.
