Here is a smartphone that actually bends. In a video that shows LG G Flex’s durability test, the LG G Flex is put through a durability test, wherein the smartphone is completely flattened when objects weighing as much as 16 and 32 Kgs are placed on top of it.

The smartphone then quickly flexes back to normal and retains its curve once the weight is removed.  LG’s seemed to have made the most of the 6 inch size, this time with the G Flex. Another added feature is the self healing ability of the rear case or cover of the G Flex. This elastic coating enables the smartphone to recover from scratches.

The curvature of the smartphone also enables the user to have a better landscape view while watching videos. The Multiwindow feature also makes a comeback with this device; it can be activated by holding down the back button and then using the selection app.

G Flex arrived in South Korea in early November. But it’s yet to make its presence felt, worldwide. The launch dates in India have not been officially announced. There are certain similarities between LG G Flex and the LG G2, however the software in the case of the former is completely different.

Here are some of the G Flex specifications:
