Watch the highlights of LG's MWC press conference

Not to be outdone by it's handset rivals, LG revealed it's highly curved Smartphones (G Flex 2) to further differentiate itself from the common rectangle with curved edges of other smartphones.

“The G Flex2 shows the world that there’s still room for design innovation in today’s smartphones beyond just metal frames and larger displays,” said Juno Cho, president and CEO of the LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “We think the G Flex2 is the perfect example of form and function coming together beautifully. It’s a smartphone that people simply won’t be able to take their eyes off of.”
