The LG G Flex is basically the most interesting device that’s been announced in 2013 due to the fact that its curved display can be flattened out without any damage done to it. The other incredibly helpful feature on the device is that it ships with a self-healing back cover that can recover from normal wear and tear. Well, if you ever wanted to see just how these feature work in the real world, be sure to check out the video below.
In the video below by MKBHD, the LG G Flex is scuffed up with keys and said scuffs essentially disappear for the most part after a few minutes. He even goes as far as cutting the back panel of the device with a knife, which doesn’t heal well as the key scuffs but recovers enough to make a difference, which is pretty impressive. Another interesting tidbit pointed out is that temperature has a lot to do with the rate of healing on the G Flex’s back panel and you can actually accelerate the process by warming up the cover (by rubbing it, not microwaving!).
The G Flex not only has self-healing and flexible powers, but also a handsome set of specifications under the hood, making it one hell of a device. Sure, there are plenty of people out there that may want a 1080p HD display instead of 720p, especially when the device ships with a 6 inch display, but we can imagine that the device’s flexible and self-healing features will have some overlooking this.
If the rumors turn out to be true, the US can expect the LG G Flex to land on AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile.
