In case you missed the news, the curved LG G Flex will be available on three out of four US major carriers: Sprint, AT&T and T-Mobile. While the latter two are yet to provide any details on the launch, Sprint already revealed the release date, pricing and even began accepting pre-orders. The LG G Flex for Sprint costs $299.99 with a new two-year contract and will start shipping on January 31st. In stores the phone will show up a week later, on February 7th. If you pre-order the handset before January 31st, Sprint will throw in a free Quickwindow Folio Case.
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.
The competition between LG and Samsung has officially reached a whole new level. Earlier this month, Samsung announced the Galaxy Round, its fist smartphone with a curved screen. LG eagerly followed the lead and today lifted the veils off of the G Flex. The idea behind the LG G Flex is basically the same as Samsung had, only the phone bends along a different axis. The LG G Flex will hit the stores in South Korean some time in November. Later on, the device will be available in other markets as well.
The LG G Flex, assuming that this is the phone’s real name, is no longer just a theory and a couple of render shots. The actual phablet made appearance on Telefe in Argentina where is was not only photographed but also recorded on video. The device has not been officially confirmed by LG yet, but word on the street is that it is scheduled to arrive some time in November. LG’s first curved handset will be released in South Korea and at the moment it is unclear when and if it will ever reach other markets.
Three, two, one and off they go. The race in the league of smartphones with curved displays has officially began. The first company to pioneer the new field was Samsung with its Galaxy Round that has been available in South Korea since last week. However, there was never any doubt that other manufacturers would follow rather sooner than later. It appears that the second to join the fun will be LG. The company has in the works a curved-screen smartphone known as the LG G Flex.
