Doogee to release a curved smartphone
LG and Samsung both tried something new a few years ago: they released smartphones with curved displays. Samsung released the Galaxy Round, a device that had a screen curved along its vertical axis, sort of like a taco shell. Meanwhile, LG released two generations of its LG G Flex – a smartphone that was curved along its horizontal axis. When placed in a pocket, it was flexible enough to go flat and then return to its curve.
Remember the Galaxy Round and LG Flexes? Well next year Doogee will try its hand at a curved screen device, with 18.5:9 aspect ratio, 6GB of RAM, and 128GB storage. pic.twitter.com/NFD6TaYloX— Evan Blass (@evleaks) November 15, 2017
The latest report comes from Evan Blass (A.K.A. @Evleaks) in the form of a tweet with a couple of photos. The tweet references the aforementioned smartphone before saying that Doogee might very well be trying to make a curved-screen device.
The display would feature an 18.5:9 aspect ratio with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. The two images attached to the tweet show a flexible display, with Doogee’s branding on it. Likely from some kind of prototype display.
Doogee came out of the shadows with a near-bezel-less smartphone – the Doogee Mix. Should it happen, the compant might bring the curved-display form factor back into relevancy. Do you believe that curved-display smartphones like the LG G Flex should make a return or is this still more of a niche form factor?

LG G Flex 2 is the best phone in the world for me. It still is. I just can't wait for the next generation of flex phones or curved display mobile devices.
