Preorders for LG G Flex, Optimus F3Q on T-Mobile start today
Two LG smartphones will be heading to T-Mobile next month, the carrier has revealed. The curved LG G Flex will be joining the carrier's roster at the same time as the LG Optimus F3Q, an Android smartphone with a full QWERTY keyboard hidden away behind the display on a sliding panel. The two devices will begin shipping on February 5th, with pre-orders for both starting today.
The G Flex has a curved 6-inch OLED display, backed by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, a rear 13-megapixel camera, and rear-mounted controls. T-Mobile is selling the G Flex for $672 off-contract, or under its Simple Choice pre-payment plan, $0 up front and 24 monthly payments of $28. T-Mobile customers will also receive an offer for six months of Netflix when buying the G Flex.

Running on Android 4.1, it has a 4-inch IPS TFT display, a 1.2GHz Qualcomm processor, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of storage, and a 5-megapixel rear camera. T-Mobile is selling the Optimus F3Q for 24 monthly payments of $13 with no down payments, or $312 as an off-contract device.
