LG has confirmed that the LG G Flex will arrive in the UK in February 2014, with the flexible smartphone being showcased by EE until then.
EE and LG Mobile are giving UK smartphone fans a chance to try out the LG G Flex before it is officially launched in February 2014.
The G Flex, LG’s first flexible and curved display smartphone, will be showcased in select EE stores to give consumers an opportunity to see the technology first hand.

It has a 2.26GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 CPU with 2GB of RAM. It features a 13-megapixel rear camera and runs on a 3,500mAh battery.
The G Flex also offers LG’s self-healing technology through an elastic coating on the rear of the smartphone. It is capable of absorbing “minor scratches and nicks” in under a minute.
“There’s been so much excitement about the LG G Flex since we announced it in October, so we’re thrilled to be working with 4G pioneers EE, to bring it to UK consumers. “Looking ahead, the LG G Flex also points the way for some of the most exciting developments in technology over the next few years, as phones become increasingly adapted to their users.”
