LG Electronics (LG) has confirmed that it will be rolling out its G Flex smartphone into a number of European markets from next month.
To date, the LG G Flex has only been available in Asia (Korea, Hong Kong and Singapore) and was announced at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) earlier this month that it will launch in the United States sometime this quarter on three of the country's biggest wireless carriers: AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile.
"The introduction of the LG G Flex in Europe demonstrates our confidence in the global marketplace for a curved smartphone," said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.
Measuring six inches diagonally, the Plastic OLED (P-OLED) display is the world's largest developed and manufactured specifically for a smartphone. The G Flex utilizes the world's first curved battery and is the first phone to feature a self-healing coating on the back cover, making it immune to minor scratches and nicks. The device also features user-centric UX features such as QTheatre, Dual Window and Swing Lockscreen designed specifically for the curved screen.
