LG G Flex Coming to U.S. in Q1 on T-Mobile, AT&T, and Sprint

lg g flex ces

During LG’s opening CES 2014 press event, the mobile announcements were scarce, but they did give us a Q1 launch for the curvy, G Flex. No pricing was announced nor were specific dates, but we do know that it will arrive on AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint. Verizon is missing from the party.

Sources of ours told us back in December to expect the phone in February.

    So long as there’s no overhead lighting, you’ll be all set……oh wait

    Gimmick!! Pass! Who wants a phone that doesn’t lay flat on a table? Also, 6″ inch 720p screen? Are you kidding me? Nowadays, where phones are coming out with 2K displays. This size screen is the perfect place for extra needed pixels. I am on Verizon as well. I think they made the wise move to not support a device that will probably only sell half a million units per carrier.

      You are an idiot.

      • Nakrohtap

        Nice reply. You make a lot of valid points I never thought of.
        Every carrier can’t possibly carry every phone. It will most certainly carry a premium price tag. If I was in charge making the call for Verizon, I am saying that I would pass. Like anyone would leave Verizon because they decided not to carry this niche phone.

    The Next Nexus but with a 1080p display of course.

    • zurginator

      Nah, the next Nexus will either be a G3 based device, a Motorola based device, or an HTC device (assuming they don’t die before the end of the year).

      My money is on the G3.

      • AndroidUser00110001

        Based on the past u am going to say the next Nexus device will not be made by LG. HTC did the G1 and Nexus One. Samsung did the Nexus S and Galaxy Nexus and LG has done the 4 and 5. So it looks like each manufacturer gets 2 chances at Nexus devices although the G1 was not really a Nexus.

        • zurginator

          G1 wasn’t a Nexus though, or you have to also count the G2, Optimus 4x, Droid, Xoom, etc etc etc. The G1 was simply a device running stock.

        • Jorge

          Although it didnt carry the Nexus naming, the OG Motorola Droid was also a stock Android device.

    Don’t put that phone face down on a table! If you accidentally apply any pressure to the top of it at that point you’re going to have a broken phone.

        I had not seen that video. I am impressed… that it can be pressed.

    • Liderc

      Apparently you haven’t seen the video demonstrations showing it not breaking when beating sat on. They’ve somehow made it so you can push the curve all the way down. The backs also scratch resistant/heals itself. Pretty interesting phone, just pointless to have it that curved.

      Here’s a link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Eo6qSlqTG_U Around 40 seconds in.

        P-OLED.

        P for plastic. That is how they do it.

        • Liderc

          There’s a lot more to it than plastic. The hardware inside has to allow stretching and movement. Moving parts on a device with soldered wires and microchips isn’t an everyday thing.

          • Adrynalyne

            Not really. The mainboard and components attached aren’t what is flexing, nor is the battery.

            Gorilla glass can flex, the display can flex, all that is needed is the plastic case to be designed to give a bit more flex.

            The self-healing back isn’t that impressive either when you consider that it is a coating.

    • Dr_Buttballs

      Negative. There is a video of exactly this with no effects to the phone.

    • LiviuH

      How about some research before writhing ?!?

  • Mark Schleupner

    No surprise on Verizon missing the party….

    • GotSka81

      Good phone? Great, we want it! Wait wait…can we put 49122 of our apps on it? No? Nevermind then.

      Its a non-seller.

      720p on a 6 inch screen that reviews have shown doesn’t have even colors…

      No thanks, that is an insta-return then refurb.

      • Cael

        No, Verizon is reserving its next LG flagship device for the LG Vu 3. No room for 2. Only Samsung and Motorola have that priviledge. /s…wouldn’t be surprised if that happened tho…

      • Daistaar

        Yeah… Just like that Note and Note 2. Nobody wanted those 2 devices.

        (Edit: dude lol, why am I messing with you so much this year lol? Happy New Years A! LOL

    • Culichupado

      This is one device I don’t mind Verizon passing on.
