Curved screen smartphones seem to be the next big thing in the technology world. Close on the heels of Samsung announcing its curved smartphone, comes the news that its south Korean rival LG too plans to launch a curved screen smartphone in November.
According to media reports, LG is working on a 6-inch curved smartphone being dubbed as the G Flex, which the company plans to bring launch next month. The phone is speculated to have an OLED display and use LG’s new Plastic OLED (POLED) technology.
For users, a curved display does not mean that that they will be able to bend these smartphones. Curved display means screens which will be slightly curved but not bendable.
Recently, Samsung Electronics said it will introduce a smartphone with a curved display in October. Apple’s much-rumored smartwatch too is expected to sport a flexible display.Curved display is already commercially available in large-screen televisions. Samsung and its home rival LG Electronics had started selling curved OLED TV sets this year priced at about $9,000
