LG's mobile company senior VP says that the G Flex received a good response for its design from the three major mobile carriers in Korea (SK Telecom, KT and LG Uplus). The phone is set to launch on Tuesday for 999,900 Korean Won (about $940) and LG says they are now in discussions with global carriers to bring the flexible OLED phone to the US, Japan and Europe.

The G Flex has a 6" 720p RGB flexible OLED display made by LG Display that is curved from top to bottom (unlike Samsung's Galaxy Round which is curved from left to right). Other features include a 2.3Ghz Snapdragon S800 CPU, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal memory, a 13MP camera, NFC, Android 4.2.2 and a 3500mAh non-removable battery (LG Chem's curved battery). The G Flex has two rear-mounted buttons and a "self-healing" back (that will heal scratches quickly).

Another LG Official was quoted saying that "the G Flex is one that shows the right direction for flexible smartphones, and even smart gadgets such as smart watches, to follow". I'll leave it to you whether this refers to a future Apple smart watch equipped with LGD's flexible OLEDs...
