Six-inch LG G Flex offers multitasking features, curved screen
T-Mobile has expanded its 4G LTE smartphone line-up with the addition of the LG G Flex. A curved, flexible smartphone, the G Flex offers users a thin, light and flexible sx-inch plastic OLED display, with a rear key control for convenience of using one index finger to power the device on or off and adjust volume. Its 'self-healing' paint on the back cover limits daily wear and tear use, and its 13-megapixel HD camera can produce high-quality images and video.
The G Flex includes LG-exclusive features that allow users to perform several tasks simultaneously, such as KnockON, Slide Aside and Qslide Function. Its QuickTheater function provides instant access to entertainment apps for cinematic viewing, and Dual Window divides the display into two separate windows for multitasking. Pricing and availability for the G Flex will be announced in the upcoming weeks.
