LG making curved screen smartphone; curvier than Samsung.

LG is making it curvy again. The G Flex, a curved-screen Smartphone. Launch of this curvy G is expected to be in another 2 months. The G Flex apparently set to feature a six-inch concave display. Although the phone could be one of the first to feature a long-awaited flexible OLED display, it won't be flexible itself. Instead, the OLED tech will enable a more dramatic curve than previously possible with conventional methods. Samsung has already created OLED-based devices with a slight curve, namely the Nexus S and Galaxy Nexus Google phones, but in those phones it was merely the front glass that was curved. But this time with the G Flex it is going to be more curvy, curved-screen.

Its just the news out, Samsung announced a curved display Smartphone launch in October, and following this LG came up with their more curvier “G”. Both companies are heavily invested in OLED technologies, and have a history of one-upping and aping each other's products. The pair is already producing curved OLED televisions, so the idea of introducing such displays into smartphones isn't a huge leap. CNET has a highly-pixelated sketch of what LG's new handset might look like on its site, but doesn't offer up any details as to the specs or price of the rumored Smartphone.

Is it just another rumor with rivalries to boost up? Will have to wait another month to know the truth.
