"Combining unparalleled consumer benefits with the best of LG's technological advancements, the LG G Flex represents the shape of innovation, a harbinger of the future of smartphones and is poised to reinvigorate excitement in the category during 2014," said Morris Lee, senior vice president and head of North American sales and marketing, LG Mobile Communications Company.

Purposefully designed to provide a cinematic viewing experience and ergonomic comfort, the innovative new LG G Flex incorporates many of LG's futuristic technologies while still being a practical option for today's discerning consumers.  A six-inch curved Plastic OLED HD display designed by sister company LG Display and a curved battery developed by LG Chem work in tandem to give LG G Flex its world's first ergonomic curved, flexing form factor and the ability to overcome limitations of traditional flat smartphones. The LG G Flex offers an outstanding voice and sound experience because the distinctively curved, flexible design follows the contour of the face.

"We are excited to collaborate on the G Flex with LG, a leading innovator that is shaping mobile innovation with the first curved, flexible smartphone," said Murthy Renduchintala, executive vice president, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. and co-president, QCT. "At the heart of the new LG G Flex, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor helps to enable advanced features and capabilities for the best user experiences, in one of today's smartest devices."

Complementing the immersive viewing qualities of the LG G Flex, QuickTheater™ offers quick access to photos, videos and YouTube videos directly from the lock screen with a simple dragging gesture. New is Dual Window, which divides the screen into two separate applications so users can drag and drop information, such as articles and links between windows.

The LG G Flex also incorporates the intuitive rear-key design first launched with the award-winning LG G2, and adds new user experience features.  Urgent Call Alert changes the color of the rear-key LED based on the number of calls missed, and a face detection indicator changes the color of the LED when the camera is in focus for more accurate selfies. The LG G Flex also includes LG's exclusive Knock feature so users can quickly activate or turn off the display with two simple taps on the screen.

The LG G Flex was first released last November in South Korea and then Hong Kong and Singapore in December. Pricing and availability for U.S. carriers will be announced at a later date.

Key Features Include:

  • Processor: 2.26 GHz Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 800 processor with quad-core Krait CPU
  • Display: 6-inch, HD (1280x720), Curved P-OLED (Real RGB)

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busine...
As businesses evolve, they need technology that is simple to help them succeed today and flexible enough to help them build for tomorrow. Chrome is fit for the workplace of the future — providing a secure, consistent user experience across a range of devices that can be used anywhere. In her session at 21st Cloud Expo, Vidya Nagarajan, a Senior Product Manager at Google, will take a look at various options as to how ChromeOS can be leveraged to interact with people on the devices, and formats th...

Is advanced scheduling in Kubernetes achievable? Yes, however, how do you properly accommodate every real-life scenario that a Kubernetes user might encounter? How do you leverage advanced scheduling techniques to shape and describe each scenario in easy-to-use rules and configurations? In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Oleg Chunikhin, CTO at Kublr, will answer these questions and demonstrate techniques for implementing advanced scheduling. For example, using spot instances ...
The next XaaS is CICDaaS. Why? Because CICD saves developers a huge amount of time. CD is an especially great option for projects that require multiple and frequent contributions to be integrated. But… securing CICD best practices is an emerging, essential, yet little understood practice for DevOps teams and their Cloud Service Providers. The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous ar...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
The session is centered around the tracing of systems on cloud using technologies like ebpf. The goal is to talk about what this technology is all about and what purpose it serves. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Shashank Jain, Development Architect at SAP, will touch upon concepts of observability in the cloud and also some of the challenges we have. Generally most cloud-based monitoring tools capture details at a very granular level. To troubleshoot problems this might not be good enough.
Organizations do not need a Big Data strategy; they need a business strategy that incorporates Big Data. Most organizations lack a road map for using Big Data to optimize key business processes, deliver a differentiated customer experience, or uncover new business opportunities. They do not understand what’s possible with respect to integrating Big Data into the business model.
