Following rumors that LG’s G Flex would be hitting the U.S., the device has conveniently turned up at the FCC with AT&T and T-Mobile-friendly bands. Just a few days ago, trusted tipster @evleaks hinted that the flexible device would make its way to every big U.S. carrier, excluding Verizon, and this latest filing is further backing that claim up. We initially thought the Flex would be exclusive to markets overseas, but it appears LG doesn’t want to pass up the opportunity of bringing something different to U.S. audiences.
Essentially a more limber G2, the upcoming G Flex features the same back panel power and volume buttons, as well as that interesting protective coat for “self healing.” On the inside, the device packs a 2.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, 13-megapixel rear camera, 3500mAh battery and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. All that sits below a 6-inch curved OLED display, which we’ve seen literally flexing in a previous video.
The FCC filing lists LTE band 17, quad-band GSM support and LTE band 4 (AWS), which means we can expect the device to arrive for AT&T and T-Mobile. There’s no indication how soon the device will turn up, but the FCC is typically one of the last stops devices make before hitting consumer waters, so hopefully we’ll see the handset turn up relatively soon.
