It may not be for everyone, but the curved-screen LG G Flex emerged as a surprising late-year favorite for us, and after some leaked renders pointed to interest form US carriers, we’ve been anxious to learn how the smartphone would come to the US. Last week at the CES, LG confirmed what those renders suggested, announcing that Sprint, T-Mobile, and AT&T would all be picking up the G Flex, and that one or more of them would begin sales sometime this quarter; all we didn’t have were the specifics. Today those start arriving, as Sprint lays-out its plans for the start of G Flex sales.
Pre-orders for the Sprint G Flex begin today, with proper sales getting underway in another couple weeks, on Friday, January 31. One week later, on February 7, the G Flex will arrive in Sprint’s retail stores.
As shouldn’t be too large a shock, the G Flex is fetching some premium pricing, and even on-contract, you’ll still shell out about $300 to get your hands on the phone ($650 full retail price). Still, there’s a bit of an incentive to get your order in early, as anyone who pre-orders by the 31st will score a free Quickwindow Folio Case (above), a $60 value.
Now we’re just left wondering who’s going to be next, AT&T or T-Mobile.
