LG G Flex hits pre-order status in UK at an expected yet staggering price

Go have a look at your bank balance if you’re hoping to buy for yourself the swanky new LG G Flex curved smartphone, as this beauty is going to eat up a large chunk of your available cash. The handset has been put up for pre-order in the UK, and Expansys, one of the first retailers to do so has slapped a £689.99 price tag against it.

As expensive as it is off-contract, on-contract too, the story isn’t much different. Monthly plans from Carphone Warehouse on various networks start as high up as £52 per month, and even at this rate, you’ll need to pay £79 upfront. At £57 per month, the upfront cost of the LG G Flex comes down to £49. Just what is it that makes this device such an expensive deal?

Well there’s no denying the fact that the curved display brings a lot to the table in terms of utter uniqueness. Moreover, it even houses a 3,500mAh curved battery that’s claimed to last about 560 hours when on standby. The LG G Flex features a self-healing rear surface which automatically erases small scratches that appear on it.

Apart from the UK, the LG G Flex is also destined for other parts of the globe, and we’ll have more information on the smartphone’s entries into other countries when relevant details are available.
