El LG T Flex es oficial: Pantalla curvada de 6″ y 720p, Snapdragon 800 y carcasa trasera auto-reparadora

ScreenShot098 LG T Flex

Por fin podemos dejar de hablar de filtraciones y confirmar oficialmente el LG T Flex, el nuevo phablet de LG cuya más llamativa característica es la de su curvado cuerpo. Con una pantalla de 6″ y una resolución de 720p, procesador Snapdragon 800 a 2.26 GHz, 2 GB de RAM y una cámara de 13 MP, el nuevo T Flex viene a unirse a top de gama de los terminales de LG.

Para los que conocisteis el Galaxy Nexus de Samsung os resultara algo familiar el diseño del T Flex aunque el nuevo modelo de LG luce una curvatura mucho más pronunciada. Según LG esta curvatura esta especialmente pensada para adaptarse al contorno de la cara y conseguir hasta 3 dB más en el sonido frente a diseños más tradicionales. Otro factor a tener en cuenta con su forma es que su pantalla OLED plástica (POLED) permite cuando se usa en modo horizontal una experiencia similar al IMAX al permitir unos mejores ángulos de visualización.

LG también presume de su batería de 3500 mAh fabricada por su división de LG Chem específicamente para este terminal bajo la tecnología patentada Stack & Folding. Junto con esta característica también nos encontramos su carcasa trasera auto-reparadora, ya que el revestimiento elástico con el que está fabricada tiene la capacidad de recuperarse de los arañazos, rasguños y desgaste diarios en cuestión de minutos.

El T Flex comparte ciertas cualidades con su predecesor el LG G2 como los botones traseros, calidad de sonido 24 bit/192kHz Hi-Fi, cámara de 13 MP o las funcionalidades KnockON, Guest Mode and Plug & Pop. Además, posee nuevas funciones y prestaciones como:

QTheater: ofrece a los usuarios un acceso rápido a fotos, vídeos y YouTube directamente desde la pantalla de bloqueo. Al tocar la pantalla y arrastrando dos dedos hacia el exterior a lo largo de la superficie curva, las aplicaciones aparecen con un efecto de cortinas del teatro.
Doble Ventana: La gran pantalla de 6 pulgadas se puede dividir en dos ventanas separadas para mayor eficacia en multitarea.
Swing Lockscreen: Modifica la imagen en la pantalla de bloqueo en función de cómo se sostiene el terminal.
Indicador de detección de la cara: El LED trasero se muestra en color verde para confirmar el estado de detección y enfoque de rostro al realizar una fotografía.
Temporizador cámara:  El LED trasero parpadeara en para indicar que la cuenta regresiva para el disparo  ha comenzado.
Urgent Call: El LED trasero parpadeara en rojo cuando varias llamadas consecutivas de la misma persona queden sin respuesta.

LG UNVEILS WORLD’S FIRST “REAL” CURVED SMARTPHONE

LG G Flex Stays Ahead of the Curve to Lead Evolution of Smartphones with Breakthrough Innovations

SEOUL, Oct. 29, 2013 – Setting a new milestone in the evolution of the smartphone, LG Electronics (LG) today officially took the wraps off the LG G Flex, a smartphone curved to follow the contour of the face, the first device to offer such a design in the smartphone market. The latest device in LG’s premium G Series, the G Flex incorporates proprietary innovations from other LG companies in the form of the display and battery that have never been seen before. The LG G Flex also boasts new user experience (UX) features that take advantage of the curved form factor.

“The LG G Flex is the best representation yet of how a smartphone should be curved,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “The LG G Flex with its distinctive design, innovative hardware and consumer-centric UX represents the most significant development in the smartphone space since smartphone became part of our regular vocabulary.”

Form + Function: Design that Understands Human Curves
The vertically curved design of the LG G Flex reduces the distance between one’s mouth to the microphone when the device is held against the ear, as traditional telephone handsets used to. The LG G Flex employs a curvature arc that is optimized for the average face, to deliver improved voice and sound quality. The curved form increases the sound level by 3dB compared to typical flat smartphones. The curved design also offers a more reassuring grip and fits more comfortably in one’s back pocket. What’s more, in landscape mode, the display offers an IMAX-like experience, with the result being the most comfortable viewing angle for watching videos or playing games.

LG G Flex also features the Rear Key first introduced in the LG G2. Devoid of any buttons on the sides, there is less chance of accidentally powering off the phone and the convenience of using one’s index finger to adjust the volume when conversing is maintained.

Innovation Delivered Through Collaboration
The development of LG G Flex was only possible through the successful collaboration with sister companies LG Display and LG Chem. The 6-inch display found in the G Flex is the world’s largest Plastic OLED (POLED) display developed and mass produced specifically for smartphones. The ultra-thin, ultra-light flexible POLED display and curved OLED panel are built on plastic substrates instead of glass, giving LG G Flex its unique shape and durability. The POLED display is brighter and more precise thanks to the application of Real RGB, which contains all three sub-pixels – red, green and blue – in one pixel.

LG Chem developed the world’s first curved battery technology specifically for application in LG G Flex. The curved battery in the G Flex is designed with LG Chem’s patented Stack & Folding technology, which reduces the physical stress on the battery pack when in the curved form and provides better stability and performance. Despite its thin form, the LG G Flex battery has a capacity of 3,500mAh, enough power for more than a full day of use.

User-Centered Technologies
Among the several new technologies, the LG G Flex is the first smartphone to apply a “Self Healing” coating on the back cover. The elastic coating has the ability to recover from the daily wear-and-tear scratches and nicks that un-cased smartphones are likely to receive, keeping the G Flex looking newer longer.

Users of LG G Flex will have a wider selection in the ability to enjoy in various format of music – MP3, CD quality or 24 bit/192kHz Hi-Fi playback. UX features, such as KnockON, Guest Mode and Plug & Pop, which were positively received when first introduced in the LG G2, can also found in the LG G Flex. The LG G Flex also includes an array of new UX features:

– QTheater gives users quick access to photos, videos and YouTube right from the lock screen. By touching the screen and dragging outward along the curved surface with both fingers, the apps appear with the effect of theater curtains being drawn.
– Dual Window divides the wide 6-inch screen into two separate windows for more effective multitasking.
– Swing Lockscreen alters the image on the lockscreen depending on how the G Flex is held.
– Face Detection Indicator displays the LED on the Rear Key in green to confirm status of face detection and focus.
– Camera Timer flashes the Rear Key LED to indicate that the countdown has begun.
– Urgent Call Alert flashes the LED on the Rear Key in red when several consecutive calls from the same person go unanswered.

The LG Flex will be available in Korea starting in November through all three major local carriers. Availability in additional markets will be announced thereafter.
