LG G Flex rumored for US carriers

There’s little denying that LG’s G Flex is an interesting smartphone. With its curved display, ever-so-flexible construction, and self-healing back, this is far from your typical handset. Are all those quirks enough to make you want to buy it, though? Well, one thing at a time – before getting to the decision of whether or not to purchase the phone, it would be smart to know if it’s even going to be available in your next of the woods. Back when it launched, we knew it was confirmed for South Korea, but hadn’t gotten word of any international plans. Today we hear a rumor that not only will the G Flex make it to the United States, but it could see quite the level of carrier support.

According to @evleaks, there’s a G Flex in the works for AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile. While some of you may be wondering why Verizon didn’t make that list, we’re just happy to see as many carriers named as we do. Especially when we compare the G Flex to Samsung’s Galaxy Round, which has been called more of a “prototype,” and with limited availability, the G Flex sounds like it’s going to be a heck of a lot more prolific; Samsung may have beaten it to the punch, but LG could be the OEM to really follow-through with curved screen designs.

For now, there’s no mention of availability, so we can’t say if we’ll be seeing this guy show in the States before the end of the year, or if we may see it land sometime in early 2014, instead.
