The first curved smartphone launched by LG, the G Flex is about to hit shelves in Australia. This would be the second country that gets the device, after it was officially introduced in South Korea last week via KT Telecom carrier.AusDroid reports that customers in Australia can now pre-order the unique smartphone via major retailer MobiCity, assuming they afford it.
LG G Flex has been priced at a whopping $1,240 (€870) suggested retail price and that's not all, as customers who pre-order the smartphone will also have to pay 10% GST and $125 (€90) Customs and Courier GST fee.
That means that those who wish to own the LG G Flex will end up paying around $1,415 (€995) upfront, including taxes.
Keep in mind that MobiCity will sell the same G Flex version that's now available for purchase in South Korea, but some of the features won't work due to the fact that they are limited to that market.
Anyway, LG G Flex will be compatible with the following networks: GSM 900 / 1800 / 1900, 3G 850 / 1900 / 2100 and 4G/LTE 850 / 1800. Assuming that one of these bands matches your favorite carrier's network, you can start using the G Flex on its airwaves.
Unlike Samsung Galaxy Round, world's first curved smartphone, the LG G Flex features a vertically curved display. Moreover, it's the only one that's really flexible.
The G Flex has been confirmed to arrive with a huge 6-inch OLED capacitive touchscreen display that supports HD (720 x 1280 pixels) resolution.
On the inside, the device comes equipped with a 2.26 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, an Adreno 330 graphics processing unit and 2GB of RAM.
There's also a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 2.1-megapixel secondary camera for video calls, 32GB of internal memory and microSD card slot for memory expansion (up to 32GB).
