Following Samsung’s announcement a few weeks ago, LG has confirmed that it’s going to release its first LG curved screen smartphones early next year. The company has confirmed that it will start producing a massive number of the device before this year ends so that it will be delivered around the globe before the first quarter of 2014 will end.
The Curved OLED Craze Is Not Just for Televisions, But for Smartphones Too
It was more than a month ago when Samsung and LG introduced its first curved OLED television in the market. We could still remember keeping track of its announcements and both of the companies’ versions were released to the public for about the same time.
These televisions have curved screens. However, it’s understandable that its screens are not flexible as both of its sides are placed in a frame to hold it in place. However, reported news came out after the curved television’s release. It has been reported that the smartphone giants are in the middle of finalizing its design and final specifications of its respective curved smartphones.
Indeed, LG is the first to announce its batch of LG curved screen smartphones and even defeated Samsung being the first one to showcase its plan of a curved mobile phone. At least, it’s now confirmed that a curve screen on a smartphone is possible in this era of technology that we’re living in.
It’s not so surprising that the company is going to release a bendable and flexible screened smartphones. LG has confirmed that the top and bottom sides of the smartphone are bendable, but the sides will remain as it is and isn’t possible to be flexed. However, we are all hoping that more designs will come out soon for the LG curved screen smartphones as soon as the company starts releasing it.
“The new display is vertically concave from top to bottom with a radius of 700mm, opening up a world of design innovations in the smartphone market.”
This was the statement released by one of the company’s representatives when it released the announcement to the press.
Is the Market Ready for a Curved Smartphone? Will Consumers Grab It?
Most of the analysts are impressed with how things are going on with LG. It should turn out to be appealing because it breaks the eyes of the consumers from using the bar shaped smartphones for a number of years now.
But the question is, are the consumers ready to be more adventurous and sport a curved smartphone?
One analyst has expressed his impression about the said device. He emphasized that a screen that is slightly curved won’t convince the consumers. Rather, it might be more enticing if a curved smartphone can be flexible on all of its sides and all of the buttons should be touch screen too.
Are you ready for LG curved screen, smartphones and will you be one of those consumers who will line up for the said device soon?
