LG’s unique G Flex, the phone that can heal scratches on its own, has a curved panel and is indeed capable of flexing, is being prepped to launch throughout the U.K. on EE. According to Engadget, EE will start to outfit its stores with the device in an effort to drum up interest for LG’s latest high-end smartphone ahead of its 2014 launch. It’s unclear if the phone is headed to other U.K. carriers at the same time, but at least nine EE stores are prepping for its launch, according to Engadget.
The scene is a little different in the United States. We’ve heard rumors that the G Flex will launch on several carriers, though none have issued any final statement on the matter. An FCC document recently showed it destined to AT&T and T-Mobile, while an image of Sprint’s model has also surfaced. Another rumor from @evleaks claimed that the phone will hit AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint — likely around the same time — though Verizon seems to be out of the picture for now. Of note: the current G Flex supports LTE-Advanced networks in South Korea, but since those networks aren’t yet available in the U.S. or the U.K., it’s likely we’ll see a regular LTE model.
The big question is still the on-contract price. The G Flex costs about $1,000 if you want to buy it unlocked and have it shipped from abroad, but that’s going to change once it lands at EE and if it does indeed hit U.S. carriers. We may see it hit at around $199 with a new two-year contract, though it has enough unique features to possibly command more.
