The LG flex is definitely a unique device. LG claims that it is the world’s “first curved, flexible smartphone.” It was released at the end of last year in a couple of Asian countries . Those of you in the U.S. who wanted this self-healing handset had to purchase it via online retailers like Negri Electronics for a staggering $900 price tag.

LG announced today at CES that 3 of the major U.S. carriers including AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint will be the first to offer the LG Flex sometimes during the first quarter of 2014. We expect each carrier to make their own announcement in the near future. As far as specs are concerned, here is the list:

  • Processor: 2.26 GHz Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 800 processor with quad-core Krait CPU
  • Display: 6-inch, HD (1280×720), Curved P-OLED (Real RGB)
  • Memory: 2GB RAM, 32 GB eMMC ROM
  • Camera: 13MP Rear-facing, 2.1 MP Front-facing
  • Battery: 3,500 mAh (Embedded)
  • Operating System: Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2
  • Size: 160.5 x 81.6 x 7.9- 8.7mm
  • Weight: 177g

The LG Flex flex features are somewhat similar to the ones found in the LG G2 except for a larger 6-inch 1280 x 720 display and 3500 mAh curved battery. We have no details about the actual release dates. We could be looking at a $199 price with contract at AT&T and Sprint, and $599 if you’re a T-Mobile customer. Is anyone looking forward to getting the LG Flex?
