A little under two months ago, a rumor claimed that LG would be teaming up with AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile to bring its curvy G Flex to the U.S. Since then we've seen more evidence of the Sprint G Flex emerge in the form of a leaked render, and now the same thing has happened for the AT&T and T-Mobile models.
Renders of the AT&T and T-Mobile-flavored LG G Flex have been posted tonight by @evleaks. The hardware of both models looks just like the Sprint and international variants, with an LG logo at the bottom of its face and both an earpiece and camera up at the top. On the software side of things, the AT&T model (D950) includes the big blue carrier's name and its 4G LTE logo in the device's status bar, while the T-Mobile variant (D959) says "T-Mobile" near the bottom of the screen as well as Magenta's 4G LTE logo in the status bar.
While today's leak supports the rumor that the two largest GSM carriers in the U.S. will offer the G Flex, it doesn't shed any light on exactly when either device will actually make itself at home on their store shelves. There's a chance that AT&T, Sprint or T-Mobile could be planning to make an announcement at CES in Las Vegas, but for now customers on all three carriers will have to be content with the knowledge that they'll have the chance to buy LG's curvy smartphone at some point in the future.
