AT&T LG G Flex

Coming in Q1 2014, pricing and availability to be announced later

Android Central @ CES

The first smartphone with a curved screen, the LG G Flex will be available from AT&T. As rumored, the 6-inch "bendable" smartphone will be coming sometime in the first quarter of 2014, though we don't yet have any pricing or firm dates. The G Flex carries the internals you would expect from a high-end smartphone at this stage in the game, with a Snapdragon 800 CPU and 2GB of RAM. We were fairly impressed with LG's hardware when we looked at the G Flex a while ago, and are happy to see a U.S. version.

AT&T is bullish on the G Flex, and thinks they will have a winner on their hands. Jeff Bradley, senior vice-president of devices says:

We’re excited to add LG’s futuristic G Flex on the nation’s fastest and most reliable 4G LTE network. Its curved form factor and enhanced audio and visual experience is a great addition to our strong line-up of Android devices.

We're excited to try a proper U.S. version, too. Soon.

I will be interested in checking this out in an AT&T store, even though I'm not in the market for a new phone. Rocking and loving my G2.

can anyone explain to me how this phone can flex straight from the curve position and not break the screen but I see reviews of it and drop tests and the screen cracks when you drop it how does that make sense???

without an s-pen type device, I would guess just someone who likes to watch videos or gamers.

Otherwise it is kinda pointless IMHO

Love the tech though

I see the G Flex as more of an experiment than anything else. In my opinion, Samsung and LG are trying to build/gauge demand for curved displays, so they can decide if they should include them in their 2014 flagships or not.

I hope this doesn't turn out to be a big flop for LG. I don't understand why nothing really has been updated from the G2...Not even a newer version of android. I'm assuming a KitKat update will be ready to go by the time it's released. I have a bad feeling about this new phone.

Why are you surprised? LG is continuing their record of poor updating.

If this were 4.3 it would be no big deal, but 4.2.2?

Packed full of AT&T's most useless, memory hogging, storage taking, bloatware!

Oh wait, that happens with every phone on the carriers......
