The LG G Flex hasn’t even been officially announced yet, but we now have a good idea of what to expect inside the phone, if some recently surfaced AnTuTu benchmark results uncovered by Android Community are any indication. And it looks like the G Flex will feature some high-end hardware to complement its interesting curved form factor.
The G Flex is believed to be LG’s first entry into the curved smartphone arena, with a top-to-bottom curve that looks much more pronounced than Samsung’s left-to-right Galaxy Round. According to AnTuTu, the phone is powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor with an Adreno 330 GPU and 2GB of RAM, which is similar to the recently released LG G2. Also like the G2 it features a 13-megapixel camera, and internal memory has been bumped to 32GB, up from 16GB (at least for the version of the phone tested here).
The only thing I find strange are the display specs. The G Flex is said to have a 6-inch 720p display, which is significantly larger, but lower resolution, than the 5.2-inch, 1080p LG G2. I’m not sure about LG’s rationale for putting a mid-range screen on a high-powered device, but perhaps it has to do with the curvature of the display.
Of course, it’s also possible these specs aren’t indicative of the finished product, but until LG makes the G Flex official they’re the best we have to go by so far.
