LG G Flex with AT&T-compatible LTE gets its FCC clearance

When we first heard that curved-screen smartphones were becoming a reality, we were more than a bit worried we’d get models that were one-trick ponies, meant to show off the new display tech, but with little else going for them. But instead we’ve gotten devices like the LG G Flex, and even the curved screen and neat self-healing plastic aside, the hardware sounds like it makes for a pretty decent phablet. That’s why we were so pleased to hear a rumor earlier this week that the G Flex might be coming to a whole bunch of US carriers. While we haven’t been expecting that to go down until next year, we’re already seeing some activity at the FCC, with an AT&T-compatible G Flex getting its certification.

LG model D959 just saw its FCC paperwork go public, revealing LTE support on 2, 4, and 17 – all AT&T bands. There’s also the 2G/3G coverage we’d expect for AT&T, though also an odd 3G 1750MHz band we’re not used to seeing.

We wouldn’t start holding our breath just yet, but maybe this could be a sign that the G Flex could come to American shores sooner, rather than later?
