LG’s curved beauty has hit pre-order status in the UK already, and the South Korean brand has just gone on to confirm that apart from the said territory, nineteen other European nations will be getting the G Flex this February. Interested parties from Germany, France, Italy, Sweden, Austria and more should start saving up their cash though, for this is one smartphone which in no way can be called affordable.
It can be pre-ordered in the UK now at £689.99, and though there’s no word yet on its official price in Euros, we’re quite sure it won’t be a pleasing one. The handset has been available in Asia for quite some time now, and at this year’s CES we even got confirmed news that it will be debuting in the US through AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile soon.
The LG G Flex is highlighted by its curved plastic OLED (P-OLED) display which is the world largest such screen developed and manufactured specifically for a smartphone. And its screen is not the only thing that’s curved, for the 3500mAh battery on the device too grabs an arched design. The device’s self-healing coating on its rear makes it immune to minor scratches and nicks.
There’s no exact date on when the LG G Flex will officially hit store shelves, but retailers like Amazon have already started selling imported models at prices as high as €890. Customers can hope to get some respite in the price department when the device hits their countries officially.
