LG are launching their new flexible smartphone, the LG G Flex, to United States customers on the Sprint network.

G Flex will be available on Friday 31st January 2014 through Sprint for $299.99 with a new two-year service agreement. The curved mobile device will then arrive in Sprint stores on Friday 7th February 2014.

LG says the curved, 6-inch HD display helps to reduce glare and provide a more cinematic viewing experience. However, the flexibility of the phone is limited.
