LG's much-rumored G Flex will feature a 6-inch 720p curved display, according to specifications released Sunday by the company.

The phone, which uses flexible OLED screen technology to allow for a dramatic curve on the horizontal axis, is between 7.9 and 8.7mm thick at various points and weighs 177g. Inside there's a 2.26GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel camera, and a 3,500 mAh battery.

A "dual window" mode allows the screen to be divided to accommodate multitasking and a "swing lock screen" changes the appearance of the handset's wallpaper in relation to how the device is being held and presents different unlock touch effects based on the position of the user's finger.

Comparing one of the handset's features to superhero Wolverine's ability to regenerate tissue cells to heal his wounds, LG said its smartphone will also have a "self-healing" scratch-resistant film applied to its back cover that the company promises will remove light scratches "within minutes."

The G Flex is coming to all three major carriers in LG's home nation next month, there aren't any details of an international release.
