Watch this: LG G Flex flexes its bendy 6-inch screen

T-Mobile finally dropped its pricing plan for the curved-screen LG G Flex on Monday, and also introduced a new Android smartphone, the LG Optimus F3Q.

Both smartphones go on sale February 5. The G Flex, with its 6-inch bendable display, quad-core chipset, and 13-megapixel camera, sells off-contract for $672 all in, but customers will pay $0 down and $28 each month for two years.

Meanwhile, T-Mobile pins a lower price tag on the entry-level LG Optimus F3Q: $312 all told for the 4-inch phone with its 5-megapixel camera and slide-out QWERTY keyboard. On T-Mobile's Simple Choice plan, that'll cost $13 each month for 24 months.

The F3Q slider phone runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and a 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm MSM8930 processor. It's also equipped with a VGA front-facing camera for basic self-shots and video chats, and a 2,460mAh battery, which is capacious for the phone's size and specs.

While there are only 4GB of onboard storage, you can add up to 32GB of your own through the microSD card slot. The F3Q has 1GB of RAM and Bluetooth 4.0.

We'll go hands-on with the Optimus F3Q as soon as we can. In the meantime, be sure to check out CNET's full review of the global LG Flex.
