LG G Flex India launch announced but price astounds

#

There’s no doubting that the LG G Flex smartphone has an eye-catching design. With its sleeked curved appearance and some top-notch specs it certainly stands out in the crowd, as does its price. Now the LG G Flex launch for India has been announced, but the price is astounding.

LG has now announced that the G Flex will be arriving in Indian stores from Thursday and that it has a price tag of Rs. 69,999. When we first reported that the G Flex was heading for a release in India in February we gave estimated pricing of around Rs. 60,000, which we already thought was excessive.

This confirmed price is even higher though, and makes the G Flex more costly than other much-admired top-flight smartphones such as the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Apple iPhone 5S. However, at least we now have a firm date for availability of the device in India.

The 6-inch curved P-OLED display is a big talking point of this smartphone and the handset itself also has slight flexibility along with self-healing properties. Other specs include a 2.26GHz Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage (non-expandable).

The G Flex D958 also has a 13-megapixel rear camera, 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera, a 3500 mAh battery and runs the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean operating system. The phone is just 7.9mm thick at its slimmest point and 8.7mm at its thickest.
