The LG G Flex, a device that can survive a thousand mild scratches, is apparently destined for American shores after all. While it was first thought to be exclusive to Europe and Asia, noted leaker of phone-related business, @evleaks has said the phone is headed to AT&T, Sprint, And T-Mobile. In fact, he used the word "confirmed."

For anyone who has already allowed memory of the G Flex to fade, this device packs a 6-inch 720p AMOLED, Snapdragon 800, 2GB of RAM, a 3500mAh battery, and a 13MP camera. The screen – and indeed the entire phone – has a rather pronounced top-to-bottom curve.

There's no word on pricing or release date, but we'll keep an ear to the ground when it's not cradled in the loving embrace of a curved phone.

    Looks like LG really hates Pentile. They laughed at pentile in every presentation; now the spec sheet of G Flex specifically says that the OLED panel is RGB.

    I kinda want one - I mean the design is fantastic IMO, would hope to see this in the next G flagship.

    If I had a chance to grab one of these cheap in a year I might.

      I'm not sure if I'm interested in or not but I'm glad to see new ideas, form factors, technologies. I don't like all the phones that are different shapes but all basically the same. The Note was a unique phone, there's been a few unique ideas out there, and now this one is out which is neat. Keep in innovating LG/Samsung/Motorola/whoever!

    Not that I want this phone but it's disappointing to see no Verizon possibility. One less threat against their DROID line.

      No one really cares except you whiners that are slaves to the RED! Verizon is EVIL! I wish every company would snub them!
