LG G Flex hits Australia
While Samsung's curved display phablet can only be found in South Korea, the LG G Flex is expanding its reach to Australia where it can already be pre-ordered from Mobicity. Unfortunately, the device is not in stock yet, its availability in other territories is still unknown and the price for Australian customers is really high.
The LG G Flex features the same rear mounted keys as the LG G2, self healing back cover and is expected to feature a Korean TV tuner that probably will not work in Australia, as Mobicity will sell the F-340K model from KT Telecom. This is a quick overview of the handset's main features:
- Processor: quad-core 2.26 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 (Qualcomm MSM8974 SoC with Adreno 330 graphics)
- Memory/Storage: 2 GB RAM; 32 GB internal storage and microSD support up to 32 GB
- Display: 6-inch HD curved plastic OLED touchscreen with 1,280X720 pixels
- Camera: 13 MP back, 2.1 MP front
- Connectivity: LTE-A & LTE, WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, USB 3.0
- Operating system: Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean
- Weight/Dimensions: 0.39 pounds; 6.32X3.21X0.31-0.34 inches
- Battery: 3,500 mAh
The list of additional features also includes high fidelity audio (24-bit and 192 kHz playback), KnockON, Guest Mode, Plug & Pop, QTheater, Dual Window (for multitasking).
The LG G Flex 4G LTE can be pre-ordered unlocked and with 12 months warranty from MobiCity for a total price of no less than $1,415.95 AUD, roughly $1,325 USD. The shipping date is still unknown, but the carrier hopes to have it in stock later this month.
