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.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
