Though LG is not leading the smartphone market, it has some serious hope with its latest curved LG G Flex handsets by releasing it to the global market, including U.S. and European countries.
According to the smartphone listing page, UK’s retailer, Carphone Warehouse is taking the pre-orders of LG G Flex smartphone with the expected delivery on February 1st for O2, Orange, T-Mobile UK and EE with varied price tag of £49 to £449 depending on the tariff plan with contract.
Another retailer of UK, Expansys also begun to take the pre-orders for unlcoked/off contract LG G Flex curved handset for £689.99.
However, as we reported on last November, in U.S. Sprint and AT&T both announced the pre-order and beginning of sales for the first time in America. Sprint already begun to take pre-orders for the curved LG G Flex smartphone from today and the expected delivery date is on February 7th, while AT&T will begin taking the pre-orders starting from January 24th to deliver the product on the same February 7th as Sprint does. Sprint will be giving away a free Quickwindow Folio Case with the handset, which normally retails at $59.99.
Both the carriers will be offering the device for $299.99 with 2 years contract, but that may be come to $199 or $149 after the launch of Galaxy S5 or the iPhone 6 soon. LG had officially released the handset in South Korea in last October.
Regarding the specs sheet, the curved and really flexible phablet boasts a 6-inch 720p HD display screen, Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB internal storage, 13-megapixel rear camera, 2.1-megapixel front camera, sadly with the Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and impressively, a 3,500mAh battery.
