The bendable LG G Flex, one of the the world’s first curved and flexible phones, is finally traveling abroad from its home country in Korea and is scheduled to pop up in two more Asian countries.

Singapore will have first stab at the phone with a pre-order date of December 8th, and the general public in Hong Kong will be able to pick it up on December 13th, just in time for the winter holidays. No price has been set yet.

LG also announced that following these releases, it will have more information for “key markets in Asia” that will be available “before the end of the year.”

LG hasn’t set a time frame for an American release, but running on the positive momentum it picked up with the LG G2, is would seem fit that LG would want to beat Samsung to the punch on the flexible phone market. Rumor has it the G Flex is headed to AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile, though we haven’t heard anything official yet. The race is still on.
