LG’s first commercially available smartphone, the G Flex, has finally been announced by the South Korean company and it looks like it will be staying in its home country for the time being — launching on all 3 major carriers there.

While the naming may suggest the phone is flexible, it really isn’t. Instead the G Flex makes use of a curved 6-inch 720p — no 1080p for now, ladies and gents — OLED display which allows for its curved design. Under the hood you’ll find a 2.26GHz Snapdragon 800 CPU,, 2GB of RAM, 13MP camera, and a sizeable 3,500mAh battery.

Another unique feature on the G Flex is a “self-healing” technology that supposedly removes any minor scratches on the rear of device within minutes. Without knowing exactly how it works, it’s likely a compound that will repair itself when warmed up breaking bonds and then when cooled it will repair the broken bonds — ie. warmed up by the CPU when in use, then cools when the device is not in use.

There’s no word on a launch outside of South Korea for now though it’s unlikely.
