LG G Flex Hands on AA (15 of 19)

On the heels of LG’s G Flex smartphone launch into 20 European countries this month, Canadians will be getting their crack at this curvy device this spring. Rogers’ customers will be the only ones enjoying it for now, as a Rogers has snagged the exclusive rights to it for the Canadian market.

The LG G Flex is a full curved device, including the world’s first curved battery, designed to match the curvature of the human face. It will sport a dual-band LTE radio, capable of realistic speeds up to 40Mbps with a 150Mbps theoretical maximum. The G Flex is also equipped with a self healing back cover, for those minor nicks and scratches. Under the hood, the handset is powered by a 2.26GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 CPU with 2GB of RAM. Other specs include a 13MP rear cam, a 6-inch 720p display and a 3500 mAh battery.

No word on pricing or exact release date yet, but this high-end device sells for a premium elsewhere around the globe. If you want to get your hands on the G Flex, head over to the Rogers Reservation System. For those that aren’t sure if the LG G Flex is right for you, be sure to check out our full review.
