LG’s G Flex and Google Nexus 5 to be joined by a Firefox OS smartphone next month?
November is going to be an important month for LG, as the company will have three new smartphones released then. We’ve already reported about the Nexus 5 – which, of course, is made in collaboration with Google. The second upcoming smartphone is the G Flex: this will be LG’s first to feature a flexible display. And the third one will be a Firefox OS handset – according to ET News.
A Firefox OS smartphone made by LG was first seen back in February. There is no word if that is the device that’s going to be commercially available next month, since it might have been just a prototype. In any case, the LG Firefox phone will probably be released in emerging markets, being sold for a low price (like the Firefox handsets made by ZTE and Alcatel).
The Google Nexus 5 is expected to go on sale at the end of this month, becoming the world’s first device to run Android 4.4 Kit Kat out of the box. Prices for it might start at $399 (16GB version).

As for the LG G Flex, pictured above, this should have a 6 inch display, and it will certainly be expensive. It will be launched sometime next month. Unlike Samsung, which decided to release its Galaxy Round only in South Korea, the LG G Flex might be available globally, including in the US (via AT&T and Sprint).
