LG is “throwing a curve” at CES. Introducing the LG G Flex, the world’s first curved and flexible smartphone to the US market. The LG G Flex will be available in the first quarter of 2014 on Sprint, AT&T and T-Mobile. On Sprint, the LG G Flex will join the growing number of devices with SprintSpark integration – allowing the device to use multiple spectrum bands for improved connectivity and speed.
The LG G Flex used a flexible battery and a “cinematic experience” 6-inch HD display that allows users to “hear, hold and view better.” The hardware on the US models appears to be identical to the international variant of the phone. The curve of the display allows the G Flex to feel much smaller than it actually is. It’s hard to say how the general public will react when they are given the option of owning an Android smartphone with a curved display. We have a feeling that the LG G Flex’s price will be the biggest factor that will determine the success or demise of the phone in the US market.
