Product renders of the much-rumored G Flex, LG’s take on a flexible-screen phone, have already been released — and now photos of the device itself have surfaced on The Verge.

The photos come from journalist Federico Ini at Argentinian broadcaster Telefe Noticias, which managed somehow or other to obtain a device for a hands-on video.

We understand that the G Flex, which packs a 6-inch screen and is now said to have a 13-megapixel camera, will be released next month, with Ini telling the Verge that it will be launched in South Korea first.

An LG spokesperson says there are no further details on the G Flex to be shared right now.
