LG G Flex Headed for AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile According to Evleaks

 lg g flex2

According to @evleaks, who has been spot on with a ton of recent information, states that the LG G Flex is confirmed for AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile. There are no known release timeframes as of right now, but you can rest assured that as soon as anyone knows, we will post the information here. The G Flex is an extremely unique smartphone, featuring a 6″ HD (720p) POLED display, 2.26GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB RAM, 3,500mAh battery, 13MP rear camera, LTE, and Android 4.2.2 all wrapped in a curved frame that is only 8.7mm thick. 

Once we start seeing release dates, and press renders showing off carrier logos on the device, best believe we will post them up. Unlike some out there, we actually dig this device quite a bit.

Any Verizon owners hoping to see this land on Big Red?

    with a badass phone like this you’ll need a screen protector like the sapphire ones. If you can’t get your hands on one, get a GEARMAXX
    screen protector. They sell on ebay for cheap and are as high quality and
    durable!

    Will this a replacement to the G2 or a phone that you can call its little brother, flex ?

    As a continuation from my post the other day. Just another reason to hate Verizon even more every day since the Nexus 5 debuted. Verizon is on a roll to get people to leave their network. T-Mobile is looking mighty mighty good every day I wake up. Especially that I can get 210 for 5 lines and have unlimited data too.

    Silly people, Verizon only has room for one LG flagship a year

  • happybana

    I want this. From the first time I saw this I wanted this. I am in love. GET IN MY SKINNY JEANS.

  • Jordan Dewey

    After getting the wife a G2 and messing with it, i am more than interested in the G Flex. The problem is…Verizon, so yes, I am hoping this comes to Big Red.

  • Jeremy Gross

    just wow verizon…wow…wow

  • Morbid138

    I felt like I was going to give this phone a chance, then I saw those rear buttons!

    • fauxshizzl

      Have you tried the G2 at all? I thought it was a little awkward at first but after playing with one a bit felt natural pretty quickly. Similar to the power button location on the original Xoom.

      • Morbid138

        Yeah I’ve played with it at best buy. It’s an awesome device. I guess it’s just personal preference.

        • fauxshizzl

          To each their own for sure. Is it just me or do the press shots of this phone always seem to imply much more of a flex than it looks like in every hands on I have ever seen?

          • Morbid138

            Yeah, they emphasize the curve. I considered it when I saw a video with the actual device.

  • ChrisI

    And what happens when I want to put it in my pocket? A giant curved bulge? I just don’t understand the point of creating a curved display. Why?

    • Tim242

      It will curve to your butt.

      • jbdan

        Depends on where your butt is in relation to your pockets and your butt shape :p

    • zurginator

      Yeah I think this is the one place in which the Galaxy Round has the advantage, since it would curve to match your thigh…

  • Adam Truelove

    WHAT!!?! NO VERIZ…… Oh wait, I don’t care.

  • Bruce Wayne

    It will be mine.

  • Johnny

    what about that other carrier…what’s their name again?

  • Tony Byatt

    This video has me taking a second look at this device…

    • Mayoo

      Yeah this is pretty awesome!

    • Grizzly Atoms

      This is innovation.

      • NeilOMalley

        This is black magic.

      • antwonw

        Watch. Now Apple is going to announce there iPhone 6 with self-healing technology and call it invocation.

        • zurginator

          That would require them to make a plastic phone though.

          …. Oh wait.

    • anthony jones

      why can’t they make a screen that self heals from scratches?

      • zurginator

        The way it works is by being very soft and matte – 2 things which have negative side effects on screens.

    • Christian Trevor Clauss

      Nice, relaxing music.

    • A.J.

      And now we know why it is called the Flex. People really need to wait until more details come out about these devices before they make a stupid comment or judgment. I sort of wish this was coming to Verizon. I love my G2 and I thought this might be a little too big, but it would be nice to at least have the option.

      • zurginator

        My question is how did they make it survive the flattening…. I don’t see glass flexing that much without shattering, and if it’s plastic it’ll scratch easy.

        • A.J.

          No, this is showing off the new flexible displays. I have a flexible glass screen protector on my G2 right now.

  • cjohn4043

    What? No Verizon? Well this is shocking. They’ll probably get it in the next 6 months though so I’m not too worried. They know when the timing is right. /s

  • Mayoo

    - Look my new phone!
    – Cool, what does it do?
    – It’s curved!!!
    – Ok but what else?
    – … CURVED!

    This is probably what most of the people will ever know about this phone. Don’t get me wrong, the phone is great. But the general public doesn’t know it.

    • Bruce Wayne
      • Mayoo

        Did you read what I wrote? I said people doesn’t know this. The phone has great features such as what you just shared. Just read a few posts higher … I +1 the same exact video minutes ago …

    • Jonnyjohnjohn

      You are an idiot. It’s like that to every phone unless you turn it on. When the phone is off, it’s pretty much paper weight.

      • Mayoo

        Well I’m happy to know that you can insult people freely. I agree with your statement though. My original post is really not the smartest thing I’ve written.

        But please, kindly refrain from insulting people personally. It is never a good way to communicate.

        Thank you.

  • Stnkycheezman

    this is the perfect phone for all stewie griffins in the world

    • GentlemanScholar

      It looks like it is curved in landscape viewing for your head as well.

  • Eric

    Why?

    • http://jeannie.io/ jeannie.io

      Did you watch the video? That’s why.

      • Raven65

        I assume Eric was asking “Why” – is it CURVED? Nothing in that video shows any advantage gained from it being curved… only that the back can “self heal” from minor scratches and that the frame is flexible (even when pressed completely flat!). They could do the exact same thing with a model that is flat to start with. Flexible is cool… I just don’t see the point of a curved frame/screen. Some people say it feels better in your hand – but you can accomplish the same thing with a curved BACK. Some people say it fits the contour of your face better when you’re talking on it – but do you really want the entire screen getting smudged up with oil/makeup from your face? I usually just hold the top edge to my ear and keep the rest of the phone away from my face. Some people say it’ll fit better in your back pocket – but I think that’s a terrible place to keep your phone anyway. I’d also think the curved screen will be horrible for glare. Maybe I’m missing something, but I just don’t get it. I think it’s just a gimmick… just a way to e different (although it seems that EVERY brand will have a curved model out soon).

        • Resun

          With a 6″ screen, it would be hard to pull down, reach the higher area of the screen. With it curved, you actually shave off probably about half an inch that your thumb would have to travel.

  • Ben Murphy

    A no go on Big Red? Color me unsurprised.

    • Bruce Wayne

      Lookin buff Ben. Be careful showing the guns. You may attract the police.

      • Ben Murphy

        My goal.

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    LOL at the last question…. I mean….Verizon Verizon, they just don’t care about what actual customers may or may not want (choice).

    And at the rate things are been going around here with folks ditching Verizon you guys may need to consider a site name change pretty soon :-)
