On Monday, AT&T announced in a press release that it will be making the unique LG G Flex available for pre-orders on January 24, a week before the phone goes on sale from Sprint.

The phone is unique in that it has a 6-inch 1280x720 screen that has a curve to it (see the video above to find out more). The phone will cost $299 with a standard two-year contract and will be available both in stores and online.

The curved design may take a while to get used to, but the company touts it as following the contour of your face and palms. In addition, the expansive HD OLED screen makes meda-viewing quite enjoyable. As Senior VP of Devices at AT&T Jeff Bradley said in a statement:

There’s nothing quite like the LG G Flex to enhance viewing video and images. The unique design is great when using your thumbs to type a message and at the same time, delivers a great experience for video enthusiasts.

A cool feature that the large screen allows is dual-viewing, where you can view two apps side-by-side on the screen at the same time. In addition, users will be able to drag information, such as links, between the two applications for much easier multitasking.

The phone will come with a 2.26GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor, 2GB of RAM, and up to 32GB of storage. These specs are pretty standard nowadays for high-end smartphones. In addition, the phone will feature a 13MP rear-facing camera as well as a 2.1MP front-facing camera. The LG G Flex will come preloaded with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. The most unique feature of this phone is definitely the curved battery which is embedded in the phone.
