LG G Flex 2 and Samsung Galaxy Note Edge headed to US Cellular

LG G Flex 2 and Samsung Galaxy Note Edge headed to US Cellular
AT&T and Sprint aren’t the only North American carriers that will launch LG’s brand new G Flex 2. US Cellular also confirmed that it would start selling the handset sometime in the spring (for a price that hasn’t been revealed), thus offering its customers the chance to buy the world’s first Snapdragon 810-powered smartphone.

Unlike AT&T and Sprint, US Cellular didn’t release the first-generation G Flex, so this will be its very first curved, flexible handset.

Definitely one of the hottest smartphones announced at CES 2015, the LG G Flex 2 is more compact that its predecessor, as its display is a 5.5-inch 1080p one (instead of the 6-inch 720p screen of the original G Flex). The new smartphone runs Android 5.0 Lollipop, and has a self-healing back cover. It’s also got lots of features that you’d expect from any high-end handset these days, including LTE connectivity, 3 GB of RAM, and a 13 MP rear camera with laser auto focus. Mare sure to check out our LG G Flex 2 hands-on to find out more about the device.

Before launching the LG G Flex 2, US Cellular will start selling another unusual smartphone: the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge (which, as you probably know, is already available to buy Stateside). The Note Edge will be sold by US Cellular starting tomorrow, January 7, for $399 on contract.

Nice, LG actually did very well with this one. Basically a LG g3 but with a 1080p and a snapdragon 810. This thing will be an absolute BEAST. Be site to grab the 32GB model as its the only one with 3GB Of RAM. Where as the 16gb only carries 2gb of RAM. Nice job LG, not to mention all the added features. Upgraded camera, small bezels.... nice nice nice. Oh AND it has EXPANDABLE STORAGE CAPABLE OF 2TB, THAT'S TERABYTES!!! Nice work LG
