(AP) LG Electronics Inc. says it will offer a smartphone featuring a curved display and battery in South Korea from next month.
The G Flex smartphone will sport a display that curves inward from its top and bottom edges.
LG said the device will be fitted with a curved battery that its affiliate LG Chem Ltd. began making this month.
The move comes after Samsung Electronics Co. began selling a curved screen smartphone this month in South Korea. The Galaxy Round's display curves inward from its right and left edges.
Both companies kept mum on overseas availability for their curved screen smartphones.
LG did not disclose a price. Curved screen smartphones are expensive because the technology is at an early stage.
