The rumors concerning LG's upcoming flexible display smartphone are finally over - the South Korean company has just announced the LG G Flex in a press release.

- Operating system: Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean
- Weight/Dimensions: 0.39 pounds; 6.32X3.21X0.31-0.34 inches

Available in Titan Silver finish only, the LG G Flex also offers perfect sound quality for audiophiles (24-bit and 192 kHz playback) and the back of the display is built using a special scratch resistant material.
