In comparison to what?
And, not sure what you mean by curved on the ground... typically, wings only droop during taxi if they're heavy-laden with fuel.

In flight, the 748's wings will probably flex about the same as the 744. In comparison to the 787, however, the answer is no, they will NOT flex that much!

I think the 787's wing flex is one of the most striking things I've ever seen... I wish the 747-8's wings WOULD be able to flex that much!

The new tips will seem more dramatic as the same bend in degrees will be higher or lower relative to the fuselage.
