India through LG’s (curved) eyes!

MUMBAI: If the penetration of mobile phones in the country is anything to go by, we would realise that talking to our loved ones is one of the most treasured activities.

And giving the consumers the best way to enjoy their conversations are the mobile companies which come up with new technology with the launch of new models every now and then. This time around, it is LG that launched its G-Flex mobile handset.

The hi-end phone was officially launched in the country today (6 Feb). LG G Flex, the latest device in LG’s premium G Series, is designed to fit the palm of the hand and follow the contour of the face.

To showcase its special features, the mobile company collaborated with photographer Atul Kasbekar and his 12 photographers to come up with a campaign – "India at 67".

“The main aim of the campaign is to showcase India as it is in the present. It also symbolises the ‘now’ and the ever changing future of India which is similar to a transformative and disruptive brand like LG,” says LG Mobiles marketing head Amit Gujral.

On Republic Day, the 12 photographers stepped out to capture "India" over 24 hours from midnight to midnight through the G-Flex. The campaign (showcasing these pictures) will be promoted on the digital platforms which according to the company will give it the most exposure. The campaign will be created and promoted in-house before other platforms are explored.

When asked about how different the phone is from the rest, Gujral remarks, “It is the world’s first phone which has curves and flexible displays,” adding that the vertical curve creates an environment where users can be immersed when viewing videos or playing games in landscape mode.

The six-inch OLED screen android is priced at Rs 69,999. Commenting on the hi-end price, Gujral says that today the market has an equal opportunity wherein people are willing to shell out a lot of money for the quality provided.
