LG G Flex Coming To AT&T, T-Mobile & Sprint [Rumor]


The LG G Flex, LG’s first smartphone with a curved-glass display, is making its way to AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint. The handset made its debut in South Korea this month and it’ll expand its reach into Europe in December, while those in the United States could get their hands on it before Christmas, too.

That’s according to the ever-reliable @evleaks, who confirmed the move in a tweet on Tuesday. Although it isn’t official yet, @evleaks is rarely wrong, so we’re pretty confident about this one. We don’t yet have any further details on pricing or availability, however.

There’s a reason why they call it Flex.

The G Flex is very much a high-end device, packing a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel camera, and LTE connectivity. It has only a 720p display — not a 1080p one — but it’s still pretty incredible; as you can see from the pictures above, its curved glass provides a unique design that actually flexes under pressure.

In South Korea, the G Flex costs 999,000 won, which is roughly $940 in U.S. dollars. That makes it one of the priciest smartphone on the market — even pricier than the unlocked iPhone 5s. Unless you really want a curved-glass smartphone now, then, it may be best to wait until 2014 when these devices are likely to become more common, and a lot cheaper.
