CES 2014: LG G Flex for AT&T Confirmed for Q1 2014

Pricing and availability will be announced at a later date

Major carrier AT&T and LG Mobile have just announced they have teamed up once again to bring customers the G Flex curved and flexible smartphone.

According to a press release issued by AT&T, pricing and availability for LG G Flex will be announced at a later date, so stay tuned for more info on the matter.

LG G Flex is AT&T’s first curved smartphone and, as the carrier points out, it will be available for purchase sometime in the first quarter of 2014.

Just like Sprint and T-Mobile's models, AT&T G Flex will ship with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean operating system onboard. However, we can safely assume LG will offer an Android 4.4 KitKat upgrade soon after release.

Obviously, the main highlight of the LG G Flex is the large curved 6-inch true HD P-OLED capacitive touchscreen display that supports HD (720p) resolution.

Hardware-wise, the LG G Flex is pretty impressive as well. It comes equipped with a 2.26 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, an Adreno 330 graphics processing unit and 2G of RAM.

LG also confirmed that the G Flex would pack 32GB of internal memory and there's no word on microSD card slot for storage expansion.

The smartphone also boasts an enhanced 13-megapixel rear-facing camera with autofocus, LED flash and full HD (1080p) video recording, as well as a secondary 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera.

Last but not least, the LG G Flex is said to be powered by world's first curved 3,500 mAh Li-Polymer non-removable battery.

“AT&T continues to stay ahead of the curve in growing its device portfolio and giving customers the most advanced smartphone technology. We’re excited to add LG’s futuristic G Flex on the nation’s fastest and most reliable 4G LTE network.

“Its curved form factor and enhanced audio and visual experience is a great addition to our strong line-up of Android devices,” said Jeff Bradley, senior vice president – Devices, AT&T.
