We’ve seen baffling price tags being affixed to the LG G Flex around the world, and hence its expected Indian cost of Rs 70,000 (best buy Rs 66,900) doesn’t surprise us a great deal. The curved smartphone bearing self-healing capabilities and a long list of advanced specifications is apparently set to have its first stocks arrive within the next 2 to 3 days.
This news comes from a Mumbai-based retailer named Mahesh Telecom, which has revealed it through its Twitter account. Unveiled for the country back in December, this device has already made its way into the other Asian countries, apart from the UK and the US. One thing that has remained common for all its releases is its high price tag.
In the UK, the LG G Flex is being sold for as high as £689.99. On the other hand, AT&T’s subsidized model for the US is going for $694.99. The T-Mobile and Sprint variants from the United States are also slated to bear similar retail values.
What makes the LG G Flex so special is its vertically curved display and body. Moreover, the handset features a self-healing rear surface which recovers from scratches within seconds. Its high-end specs are highlighted by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 beast and a 6-inch HD monitor.
