AT&T’s Pre-Order Date For The World’s First Curved Self-Healing Smartphone Is Just Three Days Away


AT&T has officially announced that its carrier-branded LG G Flex will be available to pre-order online and in any of its bricks-and-mortar stores nationwide from Friday, January 24. Unfortunately, the operator failed to provide a solid launch date for the handset, but by pre-ordering on the 24th customers will automatically be securing themselves a device.

The G Flex is a relatively impressive high-end smartphone, packing a 6-inch curved P-OLED capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 720 x 1280, a Qualcomm MSM8974 Snapdragon 800 chipset powered by four 2.26GHz Krait 400 CPU’s, the latest Adreno 330 GPU, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of non-expandable flash memory, a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 3,500 mAh non-removable Li-Po battery.

In addition, the handset ships running Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean skinned with LG’s famous “dumbed down” custom user interface. However, the device is expected to receive the much-anticipated Android 4.4.2 update in the not-too-distant future, which will put the Flex up there with some of the other high-end smartphones that run the latest version of the open source operating system.

Running with AT&T the handset will set you back $299 on any of its regular two-year contracts, $26.74 a month on its Next 18 plan, or $34.75 per month on its Next 12 plan. If you do not want to enter into a contract but want this device, you could always grab it from the operator on any of its prepaid plans for $650.
