LG's first curved mobile, the LG G Flex, is on its way to Europe.

The device, a Jelly Bean phablet with a slightly curved display, was announced late last month, and was initially thought to be only slated for release in South Korea.

However, it's been revealed the device is on its way to Europe too: Orange has confirmed that the G Flex will be launched in France in February next year.

The operator has not yet said whether the bendy device will be coming to any of its other European territories, including the UK, Spain, and Poland. France is Orange's biggest market in Europe, where it has around 26.8 million customers.

The G Flex has a six-inch, 1280x720p Plastic OLED screen, a 3,500mAh battery, a 13-megapixel front facing camera and 2.1 megapixel rear-facing equivalent. Orange hasn't said yet how much the phablet will cost when it goes on sale next year.
