LG ‘G Flex’ smartphone with flexible display revealed in leaked images

The first generation of smartphones with flexible displays is shaping up to be incredibly disappointing. Samsung recently announced the new Galaxy Round handset, which features a curved display because it features a curved display. Now, according to a recent leak from Engadget, it looks like we can expect more of the same from LG. The site on Sunday posted leaked renders of the upcoming “G Flex” by LG, which bears a striking resemblance to a banana. It will sport a curved 6-inch display according to the report, which matches earlier rumors and doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface of the benefits and form factors flexible displays will some day facilitate. In the meantime, it appears that we can look forward to a bunch of oddly shaped phones that possibly afford marginal strength benefits when dropped at certain angles. Another image of the G Flex follows below.
