When the LG G Flex was announced last month, general understanding was that the phone would most likely never be released outside its home market, which is South Korea. The phone was launched by three major Korean carriers last week and now it looks like the US customers also will be able to enjoy its curved form. The first sign that the G Flex might be on its way to the US shore appeared just a day after the phone hit the stores in Korea.
LG G Flex with AT&T and T-Mobile-friendly bands
@Evleaks, which is the one of the most reliable sources of information about upcoming phones claimed that the handset is already “confirmed for AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile.” It turns out that it was more than just a rumor, for the most part at least. The LF G Flex has recently paid a visit to the FCC revealing AT&T and T-Mobile friendly bands. There is no word on possible launch date just yet, but it shouldn’t be long from now.
Lovingly called a “banana” phone, the LG G Flex matches the shape of your face and by bringing the microphone closer to your mouth it improves greatly the quality of calls. Another innovative feature that the handset is bringing to the market is the “self-healing” back panel covered with a special film which is capable of eliminating scratches that the phone is likely to sustain during everyday usage.
As of specs, the G Flex packs a 6-inch 720p display, a 2.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 13-megapixel rear camera, and 3500 mAh battery. There is also a 2-megapixel front-facing camera and 32 GB of internal memory. The phone runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.
