LG G Flex for T-Mobile receives Android 4.4 KitKat software update


LG G Flex for Sprint
The LG G Flex for T-Mobile is now reportedly receiving the Android 4.4 KitKat software update starting today. The update includes a number of features and improvements, including the Knock Code device unlocking feature.  You also receive support for a battery-saving location mode, and support for Google Cloud Printer.

On the G Flex's update support page, T-Mobile lists the update as Android 4.4.3. Considering that the Sprint G Flex just received Android 4.4.2 last week, this is probably a typo. Both versions of the handset are making the transition from an aging build of Android 4.2.2.


As we have seen with other devices updated to KitKat, overall performance should be improved with faster execution to run programs, and a quicker web-browsing experience. The update is being pushed in phases, keep a look-out for Android build D95920d..

Once you do receive the update notification, make sure that your battery is fully charged and that you are connected to Wi-Fi in order to avoid data charges.

LG G Flex receives Android 4.4 KitKat update in South Korea


LG G Flex

The LG G Flex is now receiving the Android 4.4 KitKat software update in South Korea. All three Korean variants of the G Flex are receiving the latest version of Android: LG F340S, LG F340K, and LG F340L.

The update includes the new Knock Code screen unlocking feature that LG has been heavily promoting since last month (the feature is already available on newer handsets, starting with the LG G Pro 2). What the update doesn't seem to include is support for 4K video. But maybe this will be available when the KitKat update arrives on the international version of the G Flex? We can’t know for sure, but we’ll certainly keep you posted.



The G Flex was released by LG in November last year as its first smartphone to feature a curved, flexible display. The handset can be purchased in many markets around the world, including in the US - where we're hoping to see it getting KitKat soon.

LG G Flex coming to AT&T in the U.S. for $299.99, pre-orders begin on January 24


LG G Flex

Today AT&T has announced that they will be offering the LG G Flex on their lineup - the company’s first handset to sport a curved, flexible display. The second largest US mobile carrier will accept pre-orders for the G Flex starting January 24. Just like Sprint, AT&T has priced the device at $299.99 on contract.

Unfortunately AT&T has still not stated when the device will be available on sale. Since Sprint will be offering its variant on January 31, there is a good chance that AT&T will want to match that date. Check out the short video promo from AT&T showing the device in action.


The LG G Flex features a 6 inch P-OLED curved, flexible touch display which has a 720 by 1280 pixel resolution., 32GB of internal storage, a 3500 mAh battery, a 13MP rear camera and a 2.26GHz Snapdragon 800 processor. Much like the LG G2, the buttons of the G Flex are located on its rear. The device will run Android 4.2 Jelly Bean on launch, but is expected to get Android 4.4 KitKat shortly after.


PRESS RELEASE

T-Mobile is also expected to launch the LG G Flex in the near future, leaving Verizon as the only major US carrier not to offer the device.

LG G Flex coming to Sprint in the U.S. for $299.99 on January 31


LG G Flex

Sprint has become the first carrier in the U.S. to announce that the LG G Flex will be available on its network starting January 31. The device will be available online for pre-order starting today and has been priced at $299.99 on contract. Sprint will even throw in a free QuickWindow Folio Case (worth $59.99).


The G Flex features a 6 inch 720p curved flexible display, 32GB of internal storage, a 13 megapixel rear camera, LTE connectivity (compatible with Sprint Spark), a curved 3500 mAh battery and a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor with 2GB of RAM. The handset will launch running , but is expected to be upgraded to Android 4.4 KitKat soon.


At $299.99, the LG G Flex sits next to Sprint’s most expensive smartphones, including the Apple iPhone 5S and Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3. AT&T and T-Mobile are also expected to launch the LG G Flex in the US this quarter. We’re assuming that their models will also be expensive.

LG G Flex vs. Nokia Lumia 1520 - Video Comparison


LG G FlexNokia Lumia 1520

The LG G Flex with its curved design is an interesting and innovative device which will surely set a standard for devices to come. However its costly $940 price may make people think twice before making the investment. How does LG's newest handset compare against Nokia's flagship, the Lumia 1520.

The Nokia Lumia 1520 is available only through AT&T in the U.S. and costs just $100 on contract. If you prefer to get your device contract free, its still only $585, making it a great value for your money.


In terms of hardware, the Lumia 1520 wont let you down. Combine the performance and the beautiful display with the impressive 20 megapixel camera, and you are provided with a truly impressive experience with this device. However its only drawback is the Windows Phone app ecosystem, which still fails to get the attention given to Android and iOS. Pure Android fans would also likely prefer the customized Android experience of the G Flex adheres to.

LG G Flex vs. HTC One max - Video Comparison



The HTC One max in may ways is like an over-sized HTC One. In comparison, the LG G Flex is a very different phone, one that manages to move beyond what LG has done already with the LG G2.

On a negative note, the G Flex can be a costly $940 investment if plan to bring it to the U.S. The HTC One max is more reasonably priced at $600 off contract


However, if you are looking for something that’ll impress your friends, the LG G Flex is undeniably the phone that’ll get the job done with its unconventional shape and spiffy technological attributes.

LG G Flex officially announced, which curved display and self healing back cover



The LG G Flex is now official with uses flexible OLED screen technology to offer a 6 inch display with a curve along the horizontal axis. The display has a 720 by 1280 pixel resolution, and the device is 7.9mm to 8.7mm thin at various points, because of its curve. The G Flex is not just meant to look cool, it also offers some serious processing power with a 2.26GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor under its hood. The device also comes packed with 32GB of internal storage, a 13 megapixel rear camera, a secondary 2.1 megapixel camera for video calls, and 2GB of RAM to keep things smooth.

LG has used a curved battery with the G Flex, which makes use of the company's stack & fold technology. This process does a great job at minimizing the stress on the battery's components as the cell is being molded to the desired shape. At the same time, the company has managed to maintain the battery's high stability and performance. Even with its unorthodox shape, the curved battery inside the LG G Flex can hold 3500mAh of charge.

LG G Flex - Specs
The LG G Flex is an Android smartphone which features a 6 inch curved touch display, 32GB of internal storage, a 13MP rear camera, a 2.1MP front camera, a 3500 mAh battery and a quad-core Snapdragon 800 CPU with 2GB of RAM

The shape of the device is meant to make it easier to hold up to the ear and mouth when making or taking a call. The G Flex has a "swing lock screen" feature makes the wallpaper move if you tilt the screen. Touching the screen in different spots results in different unlocking effects and certain multimedia apps will open when you pinch from the lock screen.

LG has added to the appeal of the device by giving it a 'self healing' rear cover.  A special coating which has been applied to the back of the device gets rid of scratches extremely fast, usually "within minutes".

The LG G Flex will be launched next month via the top three carriers in South Korea. So far, there is no word about a global release of the phone, though LG's new strategy to be a global brand should bring this device across the world.



LG G Flex with curved display appears in Hands On Video


The launch of the LG G Flex with its bendable display seems to be closing in, as an Argentinian journalist has got his hands on a sample unit, likely from the LG factory in Latin America. We now get our first closeup look of this device in the form of some hands on photos and a video.

The G Flex is curved from top to bottom, unlike the Samsung Galaxy Round which has a sideways curve. It also has its buttons located on its rear, which has become a signature for LG devices. It also looks like the G Flex may have a dual-color LED flash, similar to what is found on the iPhone 5s, which should result in natural skin tone when taking pictures.

Unfortunately we aren't certain if this device will include optical image stabilization like the LG G2. In any case we wont have too long to wait as the LG G Flex is expected to be officially announced as early as next month, and may make it in time for the holiday shoppers.
