LG Bets on Curved-Screen Phone

LG is poised to launch a fresh assault on the global market with a curved-display smartphone, the G Flex, which will be released in Asia first and in Europe early next year.

LG on Wednesday said it already showed the G Flex to local media in Hong Kong on Tuesday. It will go on sale on Dec. 13 from major retailers and the five telecoms. Pre-orders are open from Sunday and sales start on Dec. 21 in Singapore. The handset will be launched in Taiwan in early January next year.

The G Flex, LG's first curved-display smartphone, was launched in Korea last month.
