The LG G Flex 2 has launched at CES 2015 as rumoured. Check out the official press release for more detail.
I was saying last night in CES 2015 preview that the LG G Flex 2 will likely be one of the stars of the show as far as phones go, if not the star – depending on what Samsung and Sony bring along.
And oops! What do you know? The LG G Flex 2 has only gone and been leaked in full ahead of its presumed launch this week, and it sounds very much like the phone we were hoping for.
Again, the main talking point here is the LG G Flex 2 being curved (and slightly flexible), bringing the earpiece and microphone closer to your ear and mouth respectively. But this second attempt sounds way more impressive than the phone we met in October 2013.
Starting with the display, the LG G Flex 2 comes in at 5.5in 1080p, which is instantly more appealing than the colossal 6in 720p LG G Flex. Furthermore, LG’s plastic OLED has been given some sort of special treatment yielding a 20% improvement in toughness.
On a similar note, the LG G Flex’s “Self Healing” properties are back, but this time you can expect those everyday nicks to disappear within seconds rather than minutes.
Further LG G Flex 2 specs include the spanking new Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor (this is the world’s first, as far as we’re aware), 2GB of RAM, a 13MP rear camera with OIS (optical image stabilisation), 2.1MP front camera, 16 or 32GB expandable storage, and a fairly beefy 3,000mAh battery.
Speaking of the battery, the LG G Flex 2 boasts fast charging capabilities, promising 50% battery life after just 40 minutes on charge.
In terms of connectivity, the LG G Flex 2 loves 4G, NFC (Near Field Communication), and all the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth-related bells and whistles one expects from a modern smartphone.
The LG G Flex 2 release is supposedly pencilled in for January (i.e. this month) in South Korea, with a global release to follow. Finally, your LG G Flex 2 colours are Platinum Silver and Flamenco Red. Fancy it?
