The LG G Flex is coming to AT&T on January 24 for $300

lg g flex att january 24

For those who have patiently awaiting the new LG G Flex, the wait is almost over. AT&T has announced they will be the first to get the new curved phablet, available for $300 on January 24 both in stores and online (with a two-year contract). Read our full G Flex Review here.

The LG G Flex is the first major smartphone release in the U.S. to feature a curved display, not to mention what LG calls “self-healing” technology on the back of the device, which makes scratches disappear or become less noticeable over time. There are also a bunch of videos of people flexing the phone, after which it bends right back to its normal, curved self. The Flex is certainly a beefy smartphone with its 6-inch display, quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal storage, but we’re pretty sure what most people want out of the G Flex is to bend it and scratch it, and then maybe use it as a smartphone. Still, we don’t recommend you scratch or bend it much. Some users have reported bumps forming on the display after a lot of bending, and its anti-scratch coating is only meant for an accidental keying in your pocket, not forced abuse.

One concern we have though is that the G Flex is running Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, not Android 4.3 or Android 4.4 KitKat. We have no idea when LG will bring the newer editions of Android to this device, especially since it features some special LG software for interactivity, but we’re hoping Android 4.3 at least doesn’t come long after launch.

Nonetheless if you’re a fan of all the new tech on the LG G Flex, it won’t be long until you can have it in your hands. Also, if you don’t like AT&T, don’t sweat it: LG announced back at CES that this device is also coming to Sprint on Jan. 31 and T-Mobile in the near future. If you want a quick look at what other features the smartphone will have, check out the video below.
