LG seems committed to the idea of designing smartphones that place the power and volume buttons on the back of the device rather than the side. Following the successful implementation on the LG G2, LG is poised to repeat its button placement on the upcoming G Flex, a smartphone with a curved display.

Renders of the LG G Flex leaked online last week, and a new set of actual photos of the device reveal more information about LG's upcoming curvy phone. The G Flex has a slight vertical bend to go along with a 6-inch curved OLED display. The back of the device features control buttons for that slightly different than the G2 because the power button is less wide but more protruding. According to the source of the leaks, the phone also has a 13-megapixel camera above the controls.

Anyone excited about the G Flex may want to calm down because the phone supposedly will not be released outside of South Korea. Like the Samsung Galaxy Round, which curves horizontally, the phone is reportedly meant to be a limited test run of this unique form factor. According to the Argentinian journalist who obtained the phone, the G Flex will not be released in North America, Latin America, or Europe.
