LG G Flex curved smartphone shown in early photo and video reveal

The LG G Flex is yet to be officially announced by LG, but that hasn't stopped it getting an early reveal both in photos and in video.

The anticipated curved handset was shown off on Telefe Noticias by journalist Federico Ini, who also posted a photo of the device to Twitter.

The video shows off the device that's slimiar in design style to the LG G2 that was recently released, including those volume controls on the rear of the handset.

The video, which is in Spanish, goes on to make some comparisons to the recently announced Samsung Galaxy Round, which also offers a curved display.

The LG G Flex has a 6-inch display, so it's sitting at the phablet end of the scale, and there's a 13-megaxpixel camera on the back, but the rest of the details remain something of a mystery at the moment.

There's no official word from LG on the G Flex just yet, but with the handset getting into the hands of an Argentine journalist, a formal announcement can't be too far off.

Ini also supplied some additional images to The Verge, link below.
