Johannesburg: Engineers at LG have developed flexible phones that are better at resisting damages.
Sabrina Eilers LG PR manager for the Netherlands told News24 about the rationale for the G Flex, saying that they've developed a phone that's flexible and if something happens, it's not that bad.
The G Flex was released at the end of 2013 and is evidence that LG is determined to take on its South Korean neighbour Samsung which has become the de facto Android leader.
LG has launched multiple devices to demonstrate that the company was every bit as good as Samsung, and at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, showed off its G Pro 2's apparent photographic superiority to a thinly disguised Galaxy S4.
Eilers said that it's not as breakable as flat devices.
While not revealing the exact technology behind the production of the G Flex, she referred to the company's foray into bendable TVs and hinted that flexibility would become a mainstay of LG's design philosophy.
