Two More Sprint Cellphones Contain NextRadio App

Boost MAX, LG G Flex bring to 11 devices Sprint has enabled FM capability

Boost MAX

Sprint has released two more NextRadio app-enabled cellphones.

Boost Mobile, part of the Sprint Network, is now selling Boost Max, an Android smartphone that features a 5.7-inch touchscreen and 8-megapixel camera. It’s just under $300.

Boost Max is actually a phablet, a cross between a tablet and smartphone and features 4G LTE support. Boost Mobile says the device is its first prepaid U.S. smartphone with the latest Dolby Digital Plus audio technology, providing surround sound through the built-in speakers and headphones.

LG G Flex

The other new phone to feature the embedded NextRadio app is the LG G Flex, “the world’s first curved smartphone,” according to Sprint. The carrier says the device can bend up to 180 degrees. The curve helps users see the screen and makes the device more comfortable to hold, says Sprint.

The dual window divides the screen for the simultaneous use of two apps and a slide feature allows users to switch instantly between three apps at a time, says the carrier. The LG G Flexis also just under $300 and available from Sprint

Sprint tells RW it’s now selling 11 devices that support the NextRadio app. They are: Samsung Galaxy Note 3, Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini, Samsung Galaxy Mega, LG G2, LG G Flex, HTC Desire (VMU), HTC One, HTC One Max, HTC EVO 4G LTE, Motorola G (Boost Mobile) and ZTE Max (Boost Mobile).
