There are only two ways to curve a phone. Well, too main ways. Samsung’s repping the horizontal axis approach with its Galaxy Round. But someone’s gotta go banana-style, right? According to leaked renders dug up by Engadget, LG is on it. Welcome to the weird future.

There’s little known about this phone, thought to be called the G Flex, other than that it curves, making use of LG’s new flexible OLED tech. But don’t get it wrong, this phone (almost certainly) won’t be flexible. Just curved. Like a weird touchscreen banana. Or something.

The real question is whether either of these curves can actually do anything worth doing. We’ll find out soon. But for now, it’s just a little surreal. [Engadget]
