When the LG G Flex was first announced
, some in the states figured that it would be a limited release like the Samsung Galaxy Round
. But a tweet from evleaks revealed that AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile were expecting to offer the curvaceous handset
. And when the device showed up at the FCC wearing Sprint's frequencies
, it seemed that the odds were good that we would see the LG G Flex attracting attention in the U.S.
Now you're probably thinking that this is beginning to sound like bad news for those who wanted the device in the U.S. Nope, nothing like that has happened at all. Actually, we have some good news. Professional leaker evleaks (imagine having that job title on your business card) has sent out a tweet containing the first render of an LG G Flex for a U.S. carrier.
The model number of the device for Sprint is said to be LS995, and while there is no branding on the front of the phone, on the top status bar you can see the icon for the Sprint Spark service. That means that the LG G Flex will join the other top-shelf Android handsets like the Samsung Galaxy S4
, HTC One max
and the LG G2
that support the faster tri-band LTE service. Also supporting Sprint Spark is the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3
and the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini
Despite the render and the FCC visit, we have no idea yet when we might see the LG G Flex be made available at Sprint or any of the other major U.S. carriers expected to offer it.
