AT&T follows Sprint with news of its own LG G Flex pre-orders
The journey of LG’s G Flex to US shores began in earnest last Thursday, as we heard from Sprint about just how the phone would be coming to its network: prices, pre-orders, retail availability, the works. But there are two other carriers who we know will be offering the G Flex as well, and as of the end of last week, neither T-Mobile nor AT&T had come forward with plans of their own. Well, we’re waiting on T-Mobile, but today AT&T speaks up, getting into the details of its own LG G Flex launch plans.
While Sprint pre-orders are already open, AT&T is delaying the start of its own until this Friday, January 24. Unfortunately, AT&T has yet to go as far as Sprint in regards to confirming the date of the phone’s actual arrival, and we still don’t know when those pre-orders are set to be fulfilled. We’d like to assume that the timeframe would be relatively close to Sprint’s, but there’s no way to confirm until AT&T starts sharing a little more.
AT&T plans to offer the G Flex with the same premium pricing as Sprint, which means paying nearly $300 on-contract for the curved handset.
With two of the three now out of the way, we’d be very surprised if we didn’t hear T-Mobile speak up with its own G Flex deets before the end of the week.
