EE has announced that it will be adding the LG G Flex to its portfolio of 4G phones. The G Flex will be on display in a number of EE high Street stores prior to its formal unveiling in February.
EE will have the LG G Flex on display in the 10 stores listed below up until it goes on sale. The idea will be to let customers experience the revolutionary curved handset in action along with its self-healing technology.
The LG G Flex is the world’s first curved smartphone and comes with an impressive specification. It comes with Android Jelly Bean, which we are sure EE will make upgradable to Android KitKat when the G Flex goes on sale.
The display is a 6 inch HD screen with a resolution of 1280x720 pixels (PPI = 244.7) and this is powered by its Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 2.2GHz quad-core processor which is supported with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of on-board memory.
The main camera is 13-megapixels with flash whilst connectivity includes 3G/4G, WiFi, Bluetooth and NFC.
Whilst the LG G Flex is on display within EE stores we are sure most of the interest will come from its curved display and its self-healing capabilities.
LG say that the curved display of the G Flex “mirrors the contours of the human face” and this puts the “user’s mouth closer to the microphone than a conventional smartphone”. “With the G Flex in landscape mode it offers an immersive experience via its improved viewing angles”.
LG has also introduced self-healing technology. The rear cover of the LG Flex is coated with LG’s proprietary special elastic coating which is able to recover from scratches in less than one minute.
Sharon Meadows, Director of Devices, EE: “LG is renowned for its technical innovation so we’re pleased to be working with them to bring the G Flex to UK consumers. The G Flex is perfectly optimised to take advantage of our unique double-speed 4G network and will provide users with an immersive viewing experience so they can make the most out of watching video on the go.”
The LG G Flex will be available in Titan Silver at the time of launch and will cost somewhere around £550 for a SIM free version based on a direct cost comparison with the price in Korea.
