LG G Flex: Price UK
Carphone Warehouse has confirmed that it will sell the LG G Flex curved smartphone with keen customers able to pre-order the device now. As we expected, the Android handset has a high price tag of £689 SIM-free.
Those without the capital to buy the G Flex outright can get it on a contract with a £52 per month fee and an upfront cost of £79 for the device. Various contracts are available, however, with the phone costing £49 at its cheapest and monthly fees from £16.99.
Customers who do decide to pre-order will get the chance to win one of three LG 55in curved OLED TVs worth £6,999.
"Thanks to the subtly curved design, the screen’s display is crystal clear from any angle. The arch of the LG G Flex has been specifically designed to ensure that it fits comfortably both in your palm when texting and against your face when making calls." said Carphone Warehouse.
