There has been a lot of buzz that has been going on regarding the differently designed smartphones that the two South Korean conglomerates, LG and Samsung have come up with. Naturally, the curved smartphones from the two companies presents a fresh new perspective to the very concept of smartphones and there has been no dearth of curious enthusiasts who wish to know more about these devices. Thankfully for those, LG has officially come out with the full specifications of their smartphone with a curved screen.
For the hardware part, it would come with a Snapdragon 800 processor, 2 GB of RAM and a camera of 13 MP. The overall weight of the device would be 177 grams and a display measuring 6 inch. The screen which is where the interest lies and would be curved in this case would be of 720p resolution and based on OLED technology. The curve in this device would run from top to down and not sideways which would have made it more a round shape like what the Samsung model is being talked about.
The other interesting features of the phone are its audio recording capability in hi-fi mode. The device would also be able to run and display two applications simultaneously on its screen. There is also a tap to wake feature on the device. The rear casing of the device is made up of a material that has the ability to clear up small scratches on its body. The battery of the device is of 3,500 mAh though actual run times aren’t available as yet.
Availability of the device in Korean market has been officially announced too as next month though the global launch dates are yet to be confirmed by the company. Both Samsung and LG are aware that this unique design has not been tested upon the people at large and the launch in Korea will let them have an idea of how consumers react to such a design philosophy.
What people should expect from this new design in the words of L G is “better ergonomics when making phone calls and will allow for a more immersive video experience.”
