T-Mobile announces LG G Flex and Optimus F3Q, both coming February 5th

Welcome, LG G Flex -- we've been expecting you. The curved smartphone has already been announced for T-Mobile, but we just didn't have the exact pricing or availability. That information has finally come down the wires: The G Flex will be arriving at stores and online on February 5th. The total cost of the device will be $576 $672, although you can get it for nothing down and 24 monthly payments of $28 on the carrier's Simple Choice plan. Additionally, anyone who grabs one will also get six free months of Netflix. (Update: T-Mobile originally mentioned $576 was the retail cost, but the math for monthly payments didn't add up; we reached out to company reps who told us that this was a typo and is actually $672.)

Also announced with the G Flex today was the Optimus F3Q, an Android 4.1 Jelly Bean device that comes in misty blue and boasts a full physical QWERTY slideout keyboard. It offers a 4-inch IPS TFT display, 5MP rear camera, VGA front-facing cam, 2,460mAh battery, NFC, 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm MSM8930 processor, 1GB of RAM, 4GB internal storage, up to 32GB external storage via microSD and some of LG's well-known features like QuickMemo and QuickSlide. The device retails for $312 at full price, or you can get it for 24 monthly payments of $13. You'll also be able to pick one of these up alongside the G Flex on February 5th.
