LG has had quite a few announcements at CES so far. One of the biggest has been that its uniquely curved smartphone, the LG G Flex, is coming to the US. AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint will be adding the device to their lineup sometime in Q1 of 2014, while Verizon seems to be sitting this one out.
The devices headed to US shores seem to be identical to the international variant in terms of hardware. The LG G Flex features a 6-inch display with a flexible 720p OLED display, a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a 13MP camera, a 3,500mAh battery and a fancy self-healing back.
On the software side, you’ll see the LG Knock feature, a muti-tasking solution that looks and is turned on exactly like Samsung’s multi-window, and the basic LG software included on most of its devices. On the back, there are the volume and power buttons with a notification LED in the middle.
We’re glad to see flexible display technology spread to the US. The more it’s used, the more it’ll improve and come to newer and better devices. Good on LG for pushing this tech so hard, even when Samsung is procrastinating. If you want to see a hands-on with the US-bound device, check out our video at CES! And tell us, do you plan to pick up an LG G Flex?
