LG is reportedly planning to launch the LG G Flex, a smartphone with a curved display.

According to CNET, which has got its hands on the design sketch seen below, the LG G Flex is set for a November launch and will feature a 6in curved plastic OLED display.

The LG G Flex seems to be the commercial name of the LG Z device that ZDNet Korea reported on yesterday. LG Z could be just an internal codename for the project, though the final name is allegedly still on the table. 

LG touted this technology in a press release in May and introduced a curved 55-inch OLED TV panel and 5-inch plastic OLED panel as a demonstration at a trade show.

As AndroidAuthority reports, a Japanese blog identified a device codenamed LG-F340L that fits the description of LG G Flex/LG Z in the GFXBench benchmark database. Here are the possible specs:

  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 MSM8974 @ 2.3GHz
  • HD resolution ( 1280 x 720)
  • Model info: lge / z_lgu_kr / zee: 4.2.2/JDQ39B/F340L_LAP8974JMR1R130820.1376962998: userdebug / test-keys
  • LTE-Advanced/W-CDMA/GSM
  • Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean

Other specifics remain unknown, but with Samsung and LG now both racing to be the first to bring a smartphone with a flexible display to market, it shouldn’t be too long before we actually start to see some in the flesh.
