LG is planning for something big for 2019. Yes! we could probably see the LG foldable smartphone. This is likely to unveil with the name LG G Flex X. After the LG G Flex 2, LG didn’t introduce any smartphone in the Flex series. Now as Oppo is trying to revive its Find series, even LG is to revive the Flex series smartphone with a foldable concept mix. The rumoured upcoming smartphone is said to be a foldable phone that can be transformed into an 8.5-inches tablet. Previously, we have heard rumours from Samsung about the prototype of Samsung foldable phone. While the Samsung foldable phone release date is still a mystery, we already found another patent from LG that is in plans to introduce LG G Flex X foldable phone. From the rumours and concept video rendered, let us take a sneak peek into LG G Flex X specs, design, and price.
Based on the patent filed, the new LG foldable smartphone is nowhere less than a creative piece that makes it more appealing and pleasing. We found the device to have two separate displays, probably OLED panels that when folded looks like a regular smartphone of 6.2-inches. When unfolded, the device turns out to be a tablet of massive 8.5-inches display. If you fold it more at 120 degrees then the tablet mode gets activated in which one of the display screens automatically turns out to be a keyboard. When partially folded, it gives out the feasibility to perform different tasks on two different displays. Moreover, the user can use two separate Bluetooth headphones on each display, thus making two people enjoying different music on both the displays.
Talking about the LG G Flex X specs, as specified, the device features a 6.2-inches 4K AMOLED display that can be unfolded to 8.5-inches tablet. It would be completely a metal and glass build thus giving it a premium feel. As for the internals, it may be powered by Snapdragon 855 Soc, which is a higher-end chipset than Snapdragon 845 in Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus and OnePlus 6. It is coupled with 8GB RAM thus making the apps to run smoothly and 128GB internal memory could ensure enough storage. On the camera front, the device may feature 16MP dual rear camera of f/1.5 aperture and 8MP front shooter. Considering the size of the handset, it could nearly get a 6000mAh battery that ensures the device to render at least 2 days battery life with a single charge.
From the concept video rendered from popular online source, it makes us clear that LG foldable smartphone will have a curved edge with a discrete integration of dual front camera. Though there doesn’t appear any notch as in Apple iPhone X, still the handset is not free from bezels. There are enough bezels around which is a bit surprising when compared to the latest smartphones. The device can be used in two different modes- smartphone mode and Laptop mode. Depending on your need you can either use as a regular smartphone or convert it into a tablet. The multi-display option that lets you use each screen for a different content makes it quite appealing to users. We could see an advanced face unlock feature to unlock the device, apps and other important data. Furthermore, it displays the mobile phone with in-display fingerprint scanner thus making it more competitive with the other popular upcoming smartphones of 2018-2019.
We could expect the LG G Flex X release date to happen at the beginning of 2019. As for the LG G Flex price in UAE, though it is too early to predict still we expect the device to have a higher price tag.
