Press Renders for LG G Flex on AT&T and T-Mobile Leaked

G Flex

Last night, @evleaks posted a couple of press renders for the LG G Flex; one for T-Mobile’s 4G LTE network and the other for AT&T’s network. There were no dates given along with the images, so we still don’t know when to exactly expect these devices to hit the States, except for one source who stated February. When they do, we will more than likely be looking to pick one up, given the uniqueness of their design. 

The G Flex features a quad-core processor, 6″ HD display, 2GB of RAM, a 13MP back-facing camera, and plenty of other great top-tier specs. If a curved device was on your wishlist for 2014, you aren’t too far away.

Thoughts on the G Flex? Are we hoping it also makes an appearance for Verizon’s network?

    NFC? Wireless Charging? Knock-On?

    I like LG phones, but I can’t for the life of me figure out the benefit of a curved phone other than as a novelty. Is there a purpose?

    • CoreRooted

      The current thought from a lot of people in the industry is that this is a PoC that LG introduced as a lead-in to flexible, mobile devices. Why they are selling it is beyond me aside from testing the waters, so to speak. See how the consumers react to a device that is different. The Flex isn’t unique in just the screen, it also is the first device (that I know of) that has the self-healing backing. Granted, I won’t be purchasing one, but I have to admit that it is a bold move for LG.

    I think these renders look ridiculous. You can tell they are trying to artificially accentuate the curve. Why not just take a shot at an angle.

  • MistaButters

    Surprised (and slightly disappointed) nobody posted an “Official Verizon” render in the comments.

  • Prime7

    I’ll never get another curved device, after seeing how poorly my GNex holds onto its tempered glass screen protector.

  • picaso86

    T-Mobile -When are you going to release the Moto X ? um?

  • skinja

    Doesn’t it have a 720 screen?

    I know it doesn’t matter much, but a 1080 screen on a 6 inch area would be nice.

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      720

  • SeanPlunk

    Aside from the fact it’s harder to break the screen, I don’t see the benefit of a curved phone yet.

    Also I don’t think I’d be happy with a 6″ 720p screen. Anything less than 5″ and 720p is fine, but at 6″ I would want 1080p.

    • Sankyou

      It could be easier to hold?. I don’t think it would fit in the pocket very well though. I’m with you – the curved screen thing is a bit of a mystery that reeks of a fad.

      • MistaButters

        Unfortunately with a curve, there is a right and wrong way to put the phone in your pocket.

      • SeanPlunk

        Long term being having P-OLED screens could lead to some really cool stuff. I can see amazing amounts of potential for foldable phones and tablets for instance.

        But the curved thing doesn’t hold much appeal. I just can’t see much benefit personally.

      • CoreRooted

        Not so much a fad. A lot of people have speculated that LG released the Flex as a PoC device. “Look what we can do!” sort of thing. TBH, I’m really surprised they are even selling it at all rather than just using it as a PoC.

    Wonder if the dates on the phones are when they will be released….

  • Curtis

    Shouldn’t we leave the curves to the women in our lives?

    Thanks for the innovation, but I’ll pass on the giant curved phone.

    “There were no dates given along with the images,”

    You mean aside from the “Feb 12th” and “Mar 17th” on the screens of the devices themselves???

    Looks like:
    Feb 12th – T-Mobile
    Mar. 17th – ATT

    Might have to take a hard look at these. Really want to wait to see if they do something cool with the design on the M8 though, too…

    • http://www.droid-life.com/ Tim-o-tato

      Oh yeah, I forgot that we can take those dates as confirmations. Please, excuse us for not reporting that as concrete evidence. There’s always the possibility, but until there’s an official announcement, we like to play it safe.

      • KingofPing

        Well, that escalated quickly…

        Holy shit-snacks did you take that the wrong way. Settle down, my man. I wasn’t attacking you or anyone else. I was having fun with the “no dates” bit.

        Have a kit-kat?

        Watch out, guys; Timmy’s having a bad day…

        • Scrooge

          Why not start your own android blog?

          • KingofPing

            Nice.

            I did nothing but point out a plausible correlation between the dates on the devices and the possible release dates. Something, I might add, even DL has done in the past. I never claimed it was confirmation, nor even remotely valid. It was a post. Not an insult against your mum or a video of me running over your dog.

            Given the response, I could have fired right back but instead chose to try and make light of the whole thing.

            There’s no need to turn this into some dramatic ordeal.

          • http://www.droid-life.com/ Tim-o-tato

            I think the only overreaction is by you to my initial response. That’s just my take on it though :)

          • KingofPing

            I overreacted to your overreaction of my overreaction.

            something something ‘ception….

            Yeah. I’m gonna go with that. :p

        • http://www.droid-life.com/ Tim-o-tato

          My comment was mostly sarcasm. Sorry if that was over your head. It’s Friday, dude. I’m having a great day!

          • KingofPing

            There’s a subtle difference between sarcasm and smarm I guess I just haven’t mastered yet…Seriously looked to me like you took offense. If ya didn’t, well…

            How ’bout them Bears?

          • http://www.droid-life.com/ Tim-o-tato

            Nope, no offense taken at all! Sorry for my smartass reply! :)

        Best over-reaction scene ever – horrible movie though.

        Yes, I will be voting-down this comment. Feel free to do the same. I’ve simply been dying to post this clip for ages and could no longer resist.

        • KingofPing

          rofl…

          Going to have to watch that movie.

    • shooter454

      Yes that’s what i was referring too..just a little odd to me they have different dates on them…

  • Qbancelli

    Last night?
    It seems like days.

  • coh303

    Happy with my G2, but this phone definitely looks interesting!

  • Ben Murphy

    Why does the resolution on the AT&T version look lower than that of the T-Mo version. Hmm, maybe it’s just me. #eagleeye

    • Cael

      AT&T obviously got an exclusive version! /s

    • HarleyGuy72

      And the shooting star!!!

    • Dominick White

      Also, the shooting star /stars also missing from the Att one

    • Chris

      @GotMurph84:disqus @dominickwhite:disqus @harleyguy72:disqus perhaps different resolutions? its the same wallpaper just ones blown up. if I recall on android you can have the wallpaper centered, fixed or the entire wallpaper shown

    • Bruce Wayne

      Ben, please put your guns down before someone gets shot…

      • Ben Murphy

        I accept that.

    • Mark Mann

      you also missed the shooting star in the tmo and sprint one

  • Sankyou

    6″ display….holy crap are we compensating for something?

  • NeilOMalley

    It will be interesting to see how this phone fairs with the public.

  • Jhee Wan Park

    By the time this phone gets released to the public, galaxy s5 will come with their curve lol

    • Sankyou

      I don’t think Samsung will risk curving the S5 but certainly they’ll bust out something curved in short order.

      • Adrynalyne

        Samsung Galaxy Dildo

        • Sankyou

          Probably will need to bump that up to at least 8″ then…

          • Guest

            might be too big for @adrynalyne:disqus

          • Adrynalyne

            I wouldn’t know. I don’t stick things in my @ss.

          • Cael

            10.1 or 12.2 Pro or go home!
