LG Flex could be on its way to T-Mobile


A few days ago, Engadget posted a rumor regarding the upcoming LG Flex, the competitor to Samsung’s curved glass-equipped Round. It had spotted an FCC entry for LG, and initially reported it to be compatible with AT&T only. Since then, the post has been updated and it appears the device will also be compatible with LTE Band 4 (AWS), making it a possibility for T-Mobile as well.

Like I said when I dug through some FCC filings from Motorola last week, it’s by no means a guarantee that we’ll see a magenta flavored Flex, but the fact that it’s there is a good thing. At least LG is preparing to launch a compatible device.

Do you see the need for curved glass on a phone, or is it just a case of doing it “just because they can”?

    Please, no…

    I wouldn’t be interested in a rounded display/phone. In my pocket, that would put a lot of stress on the phone if I put it in the wrong way. Besides that, it seems like it would be awkward to swipe with. But, I won’t pass judgement until I get my hands on one.

    How would you wrap a protective case around it? I guess that’s a great way to create repeat customers! No for me.

    I saw a video on this, the phone can actually flex to being completely flat without being damaged, so there’s no need to worry about it in your pocket. Also, it has some new material which “heals” light scratches. You can see videos on youtube, it’s actually pretty cool. This is just the beginning, one day we will have phones we can fold completely.

      If that’s the case, that’s pretty cool. If it also because virtually impervious to cracked screens from moderate drops, that could be a winner.

    I’m looking forward to this device, especially if we can get it on Jump. The Flexing it does is AMAZING along with the healing back.

    By the way, you mention Motorola at one point in the article and i think you meant LG.

      Oh, I just read it again and now it makes sense.

  • UMTS 1750 (UMTS band 4) support indicates that it is quite likely heading to T-Mobile. AT&T forbids UMTS band 4 support on the vast majority of devices it sells (iPhones/iPads are the only exception).
