Curvy smartphone could launch next month, according to reports
With Samsung's Galaxy Round now officially a thing, it's only a matter of time before LG responds with its own curved-screen handset, as has been extensively rumored. Today we're seeing a handful of renders of the "G Flex" leak out online, showing a top-to-bottom curve on a device that bears close resemblance to the LG G2. (An image of the phone lying flat even hints at the presence of back-mounted buttons, in the style of LG's latest flagship handset.)
Engadget reports that the device will sport a 6-inch display, as previously rumored, while an article on The Verge suggests that a November launch is on the cards, following the launch of the LG-made Nexus 5. Whether the "G Flex," or Samsung's competing Galaxy Round, will ever see a widespread international launch remains to be seen, however.
