LG G Flex to ship to more countries early next month?
Invitations to an LG G Flex launch event to be held December 3rd in Hong Kong, have been sent out to the media. On that date, the Korean based manufacturer is expected to announce global shipping plans for its curvacious handset. Orange in France is supposed to have the phone in stock sometime next month, which could also indicate that other European countries will be home to the device starting in December.

In the U.S., it is expected that Sprint, T-Mobile and AT&T will offer the 6 inch model. The LG G Flex has visited the FCC two different times, covering wireless service for the trio. Most likely, the phone won't hit American soil until early next year, possibly giving LG time to shoehorn Android 4.4 onto the handset. Considering the price of the device in Korea where it goes for 999,900 KRW ($942 USD), we could see the unit priced at $299 or $249 in the states, after a signed two-year pact.

Besides the curved screen, which bends down from the top and up from the bottom, the phone's rear plate "self-heals" hairline scratches. This was just named one of PhoneArena's Best Innovations for 2013.
