AT&T's curved LG G Flex priced at $299, pre-orders begin on January 24

Following Sprint, today AT&T revealed details on the launch of LG’s G Flex - the company’s first handset to sport a curved, flexible display. The second largest US mobile carrier will accept pre-orders for the G Flex starting January 24. Just like Sprint, AT&T will ask $299.99 on contract for the new device.

Strangely, AT&T didn’t say when the G Flex would actually be released. But we’re guessing that it won’t be long after pre-orders begin. Sprint starts selling the device on January 31, so maybe AT&T will try to match that launch date.

The G Flex will run Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean at launch, but LG will likely provide an update to KitKat shortly after that. The curved display of the G Flex is a 6-inch P-OLED one with 720 x 1280 pixels. That aside, the handset features a quad-core 2.26GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, LTE connectivity, 13MP rear camera, volume keys on the back, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal memory, and a 3,500 mAH battery.

T-Mobile should also launch the LG G Flex in the near future, leaving Verizon the only major US carrier that won’t be offering the curved handset.

AT&T has a short promo video showing off the new smartphone (see below). To top that, we have a full review of the LG G Flex right here.
