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