LG has also included some new features in the G Flex – QTheater gives users quick access to photos, videos and YouTube right from the lock screen, Dual Window divides the screen into two separate windows for more better multitasking, Swing Lockscreen alters the image on the lockscreen depending on how the G Flex is held. The back of the phone is made of a special protective film that can fix itself within minutes after being scratched.
LG G Flex will cost 999,900 Korean Won ($941) in the South Korean market. As for France, the pricing is expected to be around 700 euros.
