LG’s G Flex To Touch Down In Canada April 3


Yesterday, Rogers announced that the markets first curved self-healing smartphone, the LG G Flex, will be available to purchase from its online shop or in any of bricks-and-mortar stores located in Canada starting next Thursday, April 3. The press release also includes a statement from the operator notifying potential customers that the handset will deliver its exclusive ‘full-speed LTE connection’ – which utilizes both the 2100 and 2600MHz spectrum for data speeds of up to 150mbps.

LG’s 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.

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.

The G Flex will be priced at $199.99 on a new, two-year contract and will go on sale starting 8:00 am this coming Thursday.
