We finally have official information regarding the arrival of the LG G Flex in the U.S. and surprisingly, it’s Sprint which is getting it first. The carrier has just announced the arrival of the smartphone on its networks starting from the 31st of January with pre-orders starting today. Pricing has been set at $299.99 with a two year contract, which is a bit steep but not a lot since this is a niche product. The smartphone is also available under Sprint’s Easy Pay Plan which will require users to pay $149.99 up front with monthly installments of $20.84 for the next 24 months. The smartphone will also come with support for Sprint Spark tri-band LTE which is limited to a few regions in the U.S. as of now. Sprint is offering a free Quickwindow Folio Case worth $60 for all pre-orders of the smartphone until January 31.
The highlight of the smartphone is the flexible OLED panel (720p) which has garnered several positive reviews, barring a few bad ones. The smartphone was launched along with the Samsung Galaxy Round which later turned out to be a Korea only device. However, LG decided to leverage the situation and decided to launch the smartphone on a global scale. The smartphone will inevitably launch through AT&T and T-Mobile in the coming days, but we’re not sure when.
The LG G Flex comes with a 6 inch 1280 x 720 resolution curved P-OLED display, a 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 800 quad core SoC, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage with no support for microSD cards, a 13MP camera on the back, a 2.1MP front camera, a massive 3,500 mAh battery and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. The smartphone also comes with rear facing hardware buttons like the LG G2. Hit the link below to pre-order the LG G Flex from Sprint.
