The LG G Flex is one of the first curved smartphones on the market. Actually, it’s the second curved smartphone, as it was introduced soon after Samsung revealed the Galaxy Round. Are you interested in owning the LG G Flex? If the answer is yes, then you might be glad to hear that AT&T is now accepting pre-orders for it.
The sad news is that the G Flex costs $299 with a two year-contract. If signing agreements with carriers is not your thing, then you can purchase the device off contract for $649.99 or spread the cost on several months using one of AT&T’s Next plans. If you place your pre-order today, AT&T will ship your device on Tuesday, February 4th.
I’m not sure yet whether the public is ready for curved smartphones, but I am glad to see that both Samsung and LG are experiencing with this form factor. I’m even gladder to see both companies squeezing high-end specs inside both device. While Samsung’s Galaxy Round is curved from left-to-right, the LG G Flex is curved from top-to-bottom.
LG is boasting about the self-healing plastic used for the back of the smartphone, which will “heal” itself from minor dings and scratches thanks to a polymer coating.
The LG G Flex is underpinned by a Snapdragon 800 chipset based on four Krait 400 cores clocked at 2.26 GHz and an Adreno 330 GPU, it features 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal storage, a 13 MP rear-facing shooter with 1080p@60 fps video recording, and a 3,500 mAh battery. The smartphone comes with a 6-inch 720p P-OLED display, while running Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean out of the box, customized with LG’s proprietary user interface. Just like the LG G2, the G Flex has the volume and power buttons located on the back, right below the camera sensor.
