LG G Flex to launch in over 20 countries across Europe

LG G flex
What is curvy, stylish, and about to launch across many parts of Europe in the coming weeks? The LG G Flex, of course! Early this morning, the Korean company announced that it will be bringing its unique handset to more than 20 major European markets, including the U.K., Germany, France, Italy, Sweden, Austria, and many others. Those eager to grab a G Flex should be able to do so by the end of February. The news comes two weeks after the LG G Flex was announced for three of the largest U.S. carriers, namely AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile. The phone's European debut is expected to "pave the way for rollouts in other parts of the world".

To no surprise, the European LG G Flex won't be very different from its U.S. counterpart, or from the variant that has been on sale in parts of Asia since late 2013. It will sport the very same curved P-OLED display with a diagonal size of 6 inches, Qualcomm's Snapdragon 800 SoC will be under the hood, and a 13MP camera with OIS will be located on the back of the device. Features like the self-healing back plate and the beefy 3500 mAh battery have not been omitted either.

No details on pricing for the LG G Flex in Europe have been announced, but the phone is expected to be extraordinarily expensive. To learn more about the device, you might want to check out our LG G Flex review.
