Not too long ago, LG announced its curved display smartphone will hit the U.S. shores on AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile, which didn’t take too long. Last week, Sprint started taking the pre-orders of the device for $299.99 with a two-year contract, while T-Mobile opened its pre-registration page for the handset.
Recently, AT&T announced it has started taking pre-orders for the device for the same $299.99 price tied to a two-year contract with the carrier. Customers interested in the handset can also buy the handset on the AT&T Next plan, that costs $26.74 per month with AT&T Next 18 or $34.75 per month with AT&T Next 12.
“We’re proud to offer the LG G Flex, our first smartphone with a curved screen, in the U.S. and add the device to the nation’s most reliable 4G LTE network,” said Jeff Bradley, senior vice president – Devices, AT&T. “We offer smartphones and devices to fit every lifestyle. There’s nothing quite like the LG G Flex to enhance viewing video and images. The unique design is great when using your thumbs to type a message and at the same time, delivers a great experience for video enthusiasts. Combined with AT&T’s premium network, the nation’s most reliable wireless service, you have an unbeatable combination of features and value.”
LG G Flex rocks a gigantic 6-inch display sporting a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, a quad-core Snapdragon 800 chipset clocked at 2.26GHz with Adreno 330 GPU and 2GB of RAM on board.
Other features include 32GB internal storage, 13MP rear camera for photos and videos capable of recoding 1080p videos, 2.1MP front-facing camera, a massive 3,500 mAh battery and runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean pre-installed out of the box.
One thing we can’t deny is that it carries a pretty hefty price tag of $299.99 with contract. Customers can easily get flagship devices of other OEMs for that price. Are you going to purchase the LG G Flex from AT&T or any other carrier? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
