LG G Flex has been launched in India alongside other Asian markets and will be available for Rs. 55,000 (£550) starting January 2014.

LG has already announced availability dates for its G Flex in Singapore and Hong Kong. The curved display smartphone is already available for pre-order in Singapore from December 8 and the handset will go on sale in Hong Kong from December 13. At the time the company revealed that other regions will be getting the G Flex soon.

The G Flex may be considered a competitor to Samsung’ Galaxy Round, but they aren’t directly comparable for the fact that G Flex is curved from top to bottom while Galaxy Round is curved sideways. LG claims that its G Flex is more comfortable and fits the contour of the user’s face more appropriately than its counterparts.

LG has also claimed that the G Flex fits comfortably in a user’s back pocket and provides a more reassuring grip. When used in landscape mode, the G Flex provides an IMAX-like experience thereby enhancing user experience while watching movies or playing games, the company has claimed.

The G Flex is powered by Snapdragon 800 processor clocked at 2.26GHz, features a 6-inch display with 1,280×720 pixel resolution, 2GB RAM, 32GB internal storage, 13-megapixel rear camera & a 2.1-megapixel front snapper, runs Android 4.2.2, and comes with a sizeable 3500 mAh battery.
