LG G Flex to become available Internationally from early December

The G Flex, which became available last month only in South Korea, will get an international launch after all, with at least one carrier in France already confirmed. Orange in France will start selling the device from February, with other countries to follow. 

LG has announced a G Flex themed event for next Tuesday on Dec 3rd in Hong Kong where it will further elaborate on the availability of the quirky 6-inch curved device in other markets.

Other unique features on the G Flex include a special film on the back which "self heals" when scratched, although there isn't much known about the technology involved or the longevity of such a film, which could over time become ineffective. The phone also comes with a “swing lock screen” feature that moves the wallpaper in response to tilting motions and will produce different unlocking effects when touching different parts of the screen.

Below are the full specs for the phone.

Specs:

  • 6” 720p P-OLED display
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 chipset clocked at 2.26GHz
  • 2GB of RAM, 32GB of onboard storage,
  • microSD card slot for memory expansion
  • 13MP rear-facing camera 
  • 2.1-megapixel front camera.
  • LTE-A connectivity
  • Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean
  • 3,500mAh battery
  • Weight: 177 grams

It's not known what the phone will cost, or which other countries will start offering it before the end of the year.

Update: A representative from Orange France has told us that they will start selling it in February, not December as previously stated, the article has been corrected.

I enjoy how some people sound downright angry that this phone even exists. Like they're outraged that anyone would put a curved handset on the market, even once.

Well, the obvious answer is that Apple hasn't done it, so it isn't cool...once they do, then they will come on board

This device is pretty impressive...but 6" display is hovering on tablet size...these phones now are getting too big imo. 4.5" give or take is the sweet spot.
