After making a number of appearances on the Internet in the form of leaked images and videos, the LG G Flex has finally made it to AnTuTu benchmark. And as result of the same, the benchmark was able to record all the important details about the upcoming LG flagship smartphone.
The LG G Flex has been making rounds on the Internet since many days now. The smartphone is expected to be the first curved display smartphone from the Korean smartphone manufacturer LG. With the LG G Flex, the company will have to battle it out Samsung’s recently unveiled Galaxy Round.
Coming back to the LG G Flex, its now time to talk about the specs and features that were recorded by AnTuTu benchmark. The LG G Flex is expected to have a 6-inch curved display with a HD screen resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. Previously, there have been rumors stating that the G Flex would have a full HD 1080p display resolution, but with this new benchmark result, that possibility is almost eliminated.
The LG G Flex is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset, the same chipset powers some of the best smartphones available in the market. The list includes Samsung Galaxy Note 3, LG G2, Nokia Lumia 1520 and so on. The LG G Flex will have the same hardware configuration as the LG G2, 2.2GHz quad-core CPU, Adreno 330 GPU and 2GB of RAM. Other important features include 32G of internal storage and a high performance 13MP primary camera. We guess that these features have directly been borrowed from the LG G2, the company’s current flagship Android smartphone.
Once again, similar to the LG G2, the LG G Flex also runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Beam out of the box. We are sure that the company will soon roll out the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean update for these two smartphones, but when you get them out of the box, you will most likely be welcomed by Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.
Now if we speak about performance, the LG G Flex was actually ahead of the entire pack, even the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 powered smartphones scored lesser than the LG G Flex. The G Flex scored 33,336 on AnTuTu 4, a score that was better than the ones earned by the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, Galaxy Note 10.1, Sony Xperia Z1, Xperia Z Ultra and many more.
The main reason for this high score seems to be the 720p display used on the device instead of the 1080p full HD one. As a result of this change, the system has to push and refresh lesser pixels on the screen, a lot lesser! So due to this, there is lesser load on the GPU and the CPU, as a result of which the G Flex is fast and more powerful.
We have already come to the end of October, but there has been no official indication from LG about the G Flex. So as the new rumors suggest, the LG G Flex is expected to be unveiled in November. The company has to hurry up and come up with something great, the market already has an opponent waiting for battle!
So are you waiting for the LG G Flex or does the Samsung Galaxy Round seem to be the better option? We know that a lot of consumers prefer to have the 1080p display, and many a times this is the single most important feature that becomes the decision maker. Take a look at the available spec sheet of the LG G Flex and let us know what you think about it.
