Sprint LG G Flex Pictured, Potential Q1 Arrival at AT&T and T-Mobile as Well

LG’s curved smartphone, the G Flex, is apparently more than just an attempt to show off prototype-like display technology in one market. First introduced back in October, and only a few weeks after Samsung gave us the hilariously taco-shaped Galaxy Round, LG appears ready to take their flexible tech to the U.S. Thanks to @evleaks, we have a press shot of the Sprint variant with model number LS995.

The device will more than likely carry the exact same specs as its international brother, meaning it’ll have a 2.26GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, 3,500mAh battery, 2GB RAM, 13MP camera, and of course, the 6-inch HD curved POLED (plastic OLED) display. As you can tell from the image, this phone will indeed work on Sprint’s LTE network with access to Spark (notice the silly icon), assuming you are in one of the select Spark markets.

According to sources of ours, we have also been told to expect an AT&T variant as model number D959 and another for T-Mobile. Current launch plans look like February (or late Q1), but with a press render already surfacing for Sprint, I now wouldn’t be surprised to see theirs much sooner. Our sources indicate that Verizon has little chance of seeing this phone, for whatever reason.

After seeing the phone flex and self-heal in videos like this one, are you at all interested in this monster, even with its 720p display?

    I’m surprised that any of these phones with a 5″ or more display does not have some kind of stylus variant.
    I am only loyal to Samsung and the Note series due to the S-pen and how I actually use my phone like a phablet.
    I think once LG does some kind of stylus feature with their devices, the market is going to shift.
    LG does make quality devices, and is a doing a pretty good job of innovation.

    “Even with its 720p display?” Coming from the website that claims 720p and 1080p are no different, when it comes to the Moto X….

    Should be the MOTO ROKR since it won’t sit still on a table. dumb idea.

    I’m a huge Samsung fan but the Knox/Bootloader deal and the fact that nobody has been able to unlock it yet has me second guessing Sammy products and looking more at LG (I always said I’d never buy an LG phone) and other makers.. The specs aren’t bad though I’d rather have 3gb of RAM and a full HD display. The buttons on the back are a bit disturbing..

    Meh. Would love to check it out in person though. But CES is right around the corner… then MWC…then Samsung’s Event. Lookingforward to Q1

    Everyone put your middle fingers in the air for Verizon!!

      Agreed, Verizon only has room for 1 LG flagship that everyone wants and 1 that nobody wants. Same applied to HTC.

      Take out the LG skin, leave in the camera software, and it’s the ultimate phone

    Hmm, think this may be my next phone. think I will be switching to t-mobile(or just out of verizon in general) around the time this phone releases.
