LG G Flex to start shipping internationally in early December

Released in South Korea a couple of weeks ago, the LG G Flex will make it to other markets soon. How soon? Well, it may happen starting the very first days of December.

3G.cn reports that LG is getting ready to host a launch event for the G Flex in Hong Kong on December 3. Invitations for the event have been already sent out to the media.

December is also the month when Orange intends to start selling the LG G Flex in France (and possibly also in other European markets).

As for the US, the G Flex will not be released there this year. But it should be available via at least three major carriers (AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile) in early 2014. By that time, perhaps LG updates the handset to Android 4.4 KitKat.

The G Flex is LG’s first commercially available smartphone to come with a curved, flexible display (6 inch, 1280 x 720 pixels). It was launched about a month after Samsung introduced its Galaxy Round (which also features a curved screen), but it managed to gather more praises.

The G Flex is literally flexible and has a unique rear case that heals itself when scratched – see the official video showcasing these abilities below:

And here’s the new LG smartphone flexing and self-healing in real life:

Unfortunately, the G Flex is quite expensive. It’s being sold in Korea for 999,900 KRW (meaning about $942). Of course, carrier subsidies – where available – will partially take care of that high price.
