Finally some news about the LG G Flex that isn’t just about how curved the smartphone is. AnTuTu has graciously provided some data that shows us the device will be more than just something pretty, or weird depending on your taste, to look at.
It’s hard to talk about the LG G Flex without also mentioning the Samsung Galaxy Round simply by virtue of being the first to unveil a consumer device in that category. And just as Samsung based its own curved smartphone on its most recent Galaxy Note 3 phablet, LG is also making a similar move and basing the G Flex on its LG G2 flagship. Well, almost.
Based on AnTuTu’s findings, the LG G Flex does have a lot of similarities with the G2. It sports the same quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor with an Adreno 330 GPU and 2 GB of RAM. Internal storage is set to 32 GB, twice that of the G2. It also has a 13 megapixel rear camera. The biggest difference between the two, however, is that, while the G2 has a 5.2-inch 1080p screen, the G Flex will have a larger 6.0-inch screen but a lower resolution of 1280×720 pixels, giving it a lower 244 ppi pixel density than that of the G2.
Fortunately, aside from a slightly lower display, the LG G Flex’s performance will still be impressive, with AnTuTu’s benchmark tests giving it a score of 33,336. Someone who wants the novelty of a strange new smartphone shape and the power a somewhat high-end smartphone might want to keep an eye on the LG G Flex when it is unveiled in November.
