T-Mobile has just announced that LG’s flagship G Flex smartphone, as well as the long-rumored Optimus F3Q, will be available starting February 5. Pre-orders for both phones open up today.
The G Flex is one of LG’s most hyped phones yet, with a curved, 6-inch OLED HD display, 13-megapixel camera, and a curved 3500mAh battery.
On T-Mobile’s Simple Choice Plan, buyers will pay 24 equal monthly payments of $28 alongside their monthly voice, text and data charges. T-Mobile throws in a 6-month membership with Netflix to sweeten the deal.
AT&T already put the G Flex up for pre-order on Friday, and Sprint’s pre-orders open up on January 31, but neither carrier has announced official ship dates or in-store availability.
T-Mobile’s promise of physical, available G Flex smartphones by February 5 could make a difference in the minds of consumers during this pre-order period.
Meanwhile, the Optimus F3Q will be available on the same February 5 date for $13/month.
This is the first official mention of the F3Q, although press shots and specs leaked out last week. As rumors suggested, the F3Q has a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, a 4-inch IPS TFT display, and a 5-megapixel camera.
Both phones are available now for pre-order.
