After officially being unleashed in Asian markets recently, the LG G Flex will have Europe as its next destination starting next month and the United States before the end of the first quarter.
LG Electronics made the announcement in a news release this week.
Currently available already in Asian markets such as Korea, Hong Kong, and Singapore, the LG G Flex will sound be making rounds in major European markets, including the U.K., Austria, France, Italy, Germany, and Sweden.
The Korean company also said that the G Flex will arrive in the U.S. via mobile carriers AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint before the quarter is over.
LG hasn’t divulged any price range yet, although many are expecting the LG G Flex to be priced around the US$ 700.00 to US$ 750.00 range. Amazon currently offers it for US$ 720.00.
The G Flex is aptly named because of its curved design, which, according to LG, is intended to follow the curve of the human face. Though, LG’s Android phone with a curved screen isn’t the only Android smartphone with a bent screen; the Samsung GALAXY Nexus had one.
When it arrives in Europe, the LG G Flex will boast of a 6-inch Plastic OLED (P-OLED) screen, quad-core 2.26-GHz Snapdragon 800 MSM8974 processor, 13-megapixel camera, 32 gigabytes of internal storage, 2.0 gigabytes of RAM, 3,500-mAh battery, and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.
LG touts the P-OLED screen of the LG G Flex to provide an “immersive, panoramic viewing experience.” The Android phone’s back is also reportedly plated with “self-healing coating” that increases the cover’s resistance to minor scratches.
