LG G Flex 2 is on its way to AT&T. The smartphone will apparently launch online and in stores on April 24th, and the curved device will sell for $709 full price or $300 with a two-year contract.
LG’s second curved smartphone is finally making its way at AT&T at a rather spicy price, at least compared to other US carriers. If you buy the device full price, you can spread the payment in 30 pieces of $23.64, or choose a 24-month payment plan of $29.55 a month or 20 payments of $35.45.
The only upside to this price is that AT&T offers the G Flex 2 with 3 GB of RAM, whereas Sprint is giving the 2GB version at $199.99 with a 2-year contract.
