I knew those bent iPhone 6 Plus phones reminded me of something I’d seen before.

Okay, not just the HTC Hero and its chin: the curved, flexible display LG G Flex!

The G Flex handset, as LG points out while cleverly taking a shot at the apparent iPhone 6 Plus weak spot, comes pre-curved with an intentional bendy characteristic to it.

The reviews decided it still feels like a prototype, but that doesn’t stop LG from using ‘Bendgate’ as a promotional tool!

Update: As French site iGen.fr points out, the French LG account which ran the same promotional tweet did so much less tactfully… from an iPhone!

The account is indeed verified as its the official Twitter account for LG in France. Incredible.
