|LG G flex|
LG Electronics reveal on Monday their new Curved screen smartphone, hoping to rival Samsung's "The Galaxy Round" in the newest niche market of curved displays and flexible screens smartphones. Both Samsung and LG's curved phones are only available in the South Korea.

produce a curved six-inch display.
Experts said that curved smartphones has a more comfortable grip than flat-screen models, but manufacturing costs remain relatively high which means they are unlikely to be big a hit with consumers.
The Galaxy Round which is available only in South Korea cost $1,000.
LG said the G-Flex will be available in South Korean in November, the price is not yet determined.
