The phone features a vertically curved display and self healing coating on the back panel (for minor scracthes) along with the processing power of Snapdragon 800 chipset.
The phone comes with a 6 inch Plastic OLED real RGB vertically curved display (Unlike Galaxy Round which was horizontally curved) but the display resolution is only 1280 x720 p HD which gives you 244 ppi which is not much considering the display size and considering that it is display centric device.

The phone features a 3500 mAh battery with curved design and the back panel is particularly interesting.

The back panel comes with a self healing coating which makes it capable of healing the minor scratches itself!
According to LG the curved display will fit better on your face and will give you extra 3 DB of sound. The Loudspeaker at the back will also deliver better sound due to the curved design as it won’t be blocked.
The phone is not meant for masses. The phone comes with a MRP of 69,999 INR and best buy price of Rs. 66,999. If you are among the early adopters of technology you can consider it. The phone is probably meant to facilitate research budget for flexible display technology, which is still in alpha stage.
