"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 growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...

Artificial intelligence, machine learning, neural networks. We’re in the midst of a wave of excitement around AI such as hasn’t been seen for a few decades.

Applications of AI such as predictive analytics are already decreasing costs and improving reliability of industrial machinery. Furthermore, the funding and research going into AI now comes from a wide range of com...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
