The official punch line “redefining the curve” says mostly about it but there is a lot more to it (on the technical part) than what meets the eye. Covering the top surface is the plastic OLED screen or what is said to be the P-OLED screen. This new technology differs from the regular OLED displays wherein plastic is introduced with an encapsulating glass substrate. The protective glass shield doesn’t come from Corning but is the company’s own made through the chemical bath enrichment process that offers 20% more durability. The curved shape allows full-on screen impact offers more longevity of the display. Here is an image that shows the comparison between the two G Flex models.

Moreover, the screen resolution has now increased form 720p HD to 1080p full HD offering an excellent 401ppi density. Moreover, LG has also worked upon the curves of the handset that snugly fits to the hands. The excellent feature is the self-healing back cover.
