It's BIG! It's sleek! It's...curved?

Just announced at CES 2014 - the LG G Flex. And it's coming to Sprint in 1Q14.

The G Flex is designed for the smartphone power user who doesn't want to carry both phone and tablet. The screen is big and bright enough to handle most tablet uses while still being thin and light enough to work as a smartphone. The gentle curve feels good in the hand, fits well against the face when talking, and fits easily into the back pocket when not in use.

The screen and body are made of space-age plastics which flex. So there's no worries if you sit down and forget your G Flex is in your back pocket. The G Flex can flex flat and pop back into shape. Now before some of you go putting your best "Stretch Armstrong" test (yes, I'm showing my age) to the G Flex, let me say now that while the G Flex has a degree of flexibility, it isn't a rubber band and shouldn't be treated like Gumby (again, more age).

A couple of cool features that you should know about:

  • The screen is flexible, made of P-OLED, as is the body of the whole device.
  • The back is a special material that a degree of "self-healing" power from minor scratches and abrasions.
  • The G Flex is Spring Spark enabled!

Here's a quick "first impression" look from a reviewer at CES. Notice the physical size and how thin the device seems.

Note: The reviewer speaks briefly about a "TV antenna" and pulls it from the top of the device. I'm not sure the US model will be equipped with a TV antenna, which is a feature that's more popular in Korea.

Here's a test video released by LG demonstrating the self-healing back cover and durability of the screen and body when flexed.
