LG G Flex

Phone will have full access to 2100 and 2600MHz spectrum for fastest Rogers LTE

LG has announced that its latest big device, the G Flex, will be making its way up to Canada in short order. The wrinkle here is that it will be exclusive to Rogers, with no talk of expansion to other carriers at this point. If you are (or are willing to be) a Rogers customer, the G Flex will bring a full-speed LTE experience by utilizing both 2100 and 2600MHz spectrum for theoretical speeds of up to 150mbps (although we'll never see those in the real world).

Everything else about the device seems unchanged from the other variants that have been released — 6-inch flexible 720 x 1280 display, Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 3500mAh battery and of course a 13MP camera.

Rogers isn't spilling the beans on the exact pricing or release date — other than "this Spring" — for the G Flex, but you can head to its website to put in your reservation ahead of release, if you're so inclined.

Agreed. They always claiming to be the most fastest in canada, but the fastest I ever clock for them on my s4 was 17mbps, alot slower then my friends using bell and telus.

What, would you prefer the more slowerest speeds on Bell?

AlwaysLimey says:

I get 95mbps. Rogers. LG G2. Amazed at the speed.

I just tested with my G2 on Rogers LTE and got 81Mbps down and 11Mbps up. That's consistent with my past testing.

Rogers must be the Verizon of Canada.

Except a tiny bit better because Rogers is GSM and works with more phones.

The g flex reminds me of something a fat person sat on.

drokssilva says:

Except the one the fat person sat on doesn't worm, and presumably is in half. The flex works and is simple curved and nearly unbreakable.

Also comments on the app weren't working earlier.

Nice...

Celtic Fury says:

I have Rogers. Never a data disruption and in "real world" I consistently get 150mbps. Bell is just union thugs left over from the dark ages who still think they have a monopoly on telecommunications services. They were late to the lte game and are still playing catch up. Nice call on 1x dumbasses.

Funny, I work at a place that has Rogers only corporate phones...get emails all the time from helpdesk saying half the country/whole country data/voice/text is down at least 1-2 times a year.

David Horgan says:

The Galaxy Nexus with its curve was nice. But that's ridiculous.
