Sprint has just announced that their version of the LG G Flex would be arriving to consumers starting January 31st, the very last day of this month. The device will only be available online at that point, though the in-store launch happens just a week later on February 7th. You can drop down $300 and sign a two-year contract to walk away with it.
Sprint is also allowing you to pay for the full device over 24 months’ time with a $150 down payment using Easy Pay (that’s $20.84 per month for 23 months). LG confirmed Sprint as one of the American carriers looking to launch this thing last week at CES (as well as T-Mobile and AT&T), and also confirmed that their version would come with Sprint Spark radios.
Sprint Spark is the name Sprint gave to their latest network upgrade that makes use of a third building-friendly spectrum to deliver faster and more reliable LTE data connections.
