LG appears to be much more serious about its flexible smartphone, the G Flex, as opposed to the Samsung Galaxy Round. The latter is said to be a prototype of sorts which has only been released in extremely limited quantity in Korea, global launch is not expected. On the other hand LG has already talked about its plans of taking the G Flex around the world, and the release might kick off from early December. Latest reports suggest that LG is holding a launch event of the device on December 3rd in Hong Kong which will mark the global release of the device. Invitations for this event have reportedly been sent out.


The timeframe sits around Orange’s proposed timeframe for selling the G Flex in France, and possibly in other European markets as well. The global release will not bring the device Stateside immediately, it is likely that the G Flex might become available from AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile in early 2014. By then, it is possible that LG might roll out the Android 4.4 KitKat update for the G Flex. LG’s flexible smartphone is the first commercially available device that has a 6 inch 1,280×720 pixels curved flexible display as well as a “self-healing” back that even survives knife attacks.
