At a launch event in New Delhi, LG today announced their innovative line of curved display products – LG G Flex and LG Curved OLED TV. LG G Flex is the first smartphone to feature a curved and flexible form factor, the curve being employed vertically to practically deliver a natural experience while using the device. The G Flex has been showcased right now and reportedly it will be available in India by February 2014, priced expected to be around 60-65k. LG’s 55” Curved OLED TV is the world’s first television to sport a stunning curved panel, the display being remarkably thin at just 4.3mm and a truly vivid picture quality. It features WRGB technology and full support for Cinema 3D, to offer viewers a realistic cinematic experience. This TV is priced at Rs. 999,000 and is now available across LG’s best shops.

Other interesting features include a ‘self-healing back cover’ that automatically fixes minor scratches within a few minutes, Rear key and volume buttons as seen earlier in G2, Dual Window, KnockON, Quick Remote, ability to record videos at an ultra high resolution (UHD) of 3840×2160 and Full HD at 60fps, etc.
