At CES 2013 even that took place in Las Vegas earlier this month, it was announced that Sprint will be one of the three major carriers that would bring the LG G Flex in the United States. At that time, the price and the availability of the Spring LG G Flex were not unveiled.
Well, Sprint has revealed their full plans for the G Flex, the curved smartphone developed by LG. Sprint announced that the LG G Flex will become available in their online stores as of January 31. If you were planning to just walk into a Sprint store, grab the LG G Flex and walk away, hear that you would have to wait until February 7. The US carrier also revealed that the handset is available for pre-order in their online store starting today.
Sprint’s announcement also confirmed, what we’ve already feared: that the LG G Flex will be an expensive smartphone. The curved smartphone will cost $299 with a two-year contract attached. If signing contracts with carriers is not your thing you can pay an outright price of $650 and walk away with a G Flex in your hand. Or you can choose Sprint’s Easy Pay program, which would allow you to get your hands on the device for $150 up front and 24 payments of $20.
I case you are not familiar with the technical specifications of the LG G Flex, hear that the smartphone packs a 720 x 1280 6-inch P-OLED display that is curved from top to bottom, 13 MP primary camera, 32 GB storage, 2 GB RAM, quad-core 2.26 GHz Snapdragon 800 CPU, 3,500 mAh battery, and Android 4.2.2 as OS.
