Curved LG smartphone could land in US in coming months
LG will be bringing its curved smartphone to AT&T and T-Mobile in the United States in the near future, if a new image leak is proven true. The render of two LG G Flex devices showing AT&T and T-Mobile branding on the screen seemingly hint at a potential launch, and reignites rumors from November that LG would bringing the device to North America.
While the image from the @evleaks Twitter account is convincing, it is worth stressing that the carriers are only named via notifications on the phone's lock screen, rather than carrier branding on the hardware itself. Neither carrier has confirmed it would carry the LG G Flex either, but considering the leaker's track record, it is a strong possibility.
LG G Flex
Announced in late October, the G Flex has a vertically-curving, 6-inch 720p display, along with a "self-healing" coating on the back that is claimed to repair hairline scratches "within minutes." Inside is a Snapdragon 800 processor with 2GB of RAM, a rear 13-megapixel camera, and rear-mounted controls similar to the LG G2.
