LG's G Flex is reportedly no more restricted to Korea and has set its foot in other markets.

The handset will reportedly reach Singapore and Hong-Kong this week, and will also be introduced in key Asian markets later on.

"LG Electronics (LG) is introducing LG G Flex, the world's first curved flexing smartphone, to the global market starting in Singapore and Hong Kong this week. Key markets in Asia will also announce the availability of this innovative device before the end of the year, soon to be followed by other regions," stated the press release, according to Android Central.

While buyers in Singapore will be able to place pre-orders 8 December onwards, buyers in Hong-Kong will get the device from 13 December through major carriers and leading electronic retailers.

The firm is said to have no time-frame for the G Flex Western release as yet, but the firm aims to bring the flexible and the self-healing phone to as many hands as possible.
