LG G Flex 2 with curved display & 64-bit Snapdragon 810 processor announced at CES 2015
After series of leaks and rumours, LG earlier this month at CES 2015 in Las Vegas officially took the wraps off the next-generation G Flex smartphone. Dubbed as LG G Flex 2, the smartphone is now more compact than its predecessor and comes with monstrous specifications. The G Flex 2 comes in Platinum Silver and Flamenco Red colours. It will be available starting end of the month in Korea, followed by additional global markets.
Similar to the original G Flex, the G Flex 2 also carries the unique “Self Healing” back cover and is now faster and more effective than before, healing the scratches in about just 10 seconds at room temperature, against three minutes on the original G Flex.
LG has stuffed the G Flex 2 with loads of unique software features optimized for its curved form factor: Gesture Shot, Gesture View and GlanceView. Detailing them, Gesture Shot makes it easy to capture the perfect selfie with a simple hand gesture recognizable from up to 1.5 meters away, Gesture View makes it easy to check your last shot immediately after taking a photo or selfie and GlanceView displays key information such as time, recent messages or missed calls with a downward swipe of the curved screen even while the display is off.
Talking of the specifications, LG G Flex 2 is the world's first smartphone to feature the 64-bit octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor clocked at 2GHz. The smartphone comes with 5.5-inch Full HD Curved P-OLED display with Gorilla Glass 3 protection, 2GB RAM and Android 5.0 Lollipop.
Other specifications include an 13MP rear camera with dual-true tone LED flash, OIS+ and laser auto focus, 2.1MP front facing camera, 16GB / 32GB internal storage with expandable up to 2TB and 3,000 mAh battery with support for fast charge (charging the phone up to 50% in just 40 minutes). The smartphone measures 149.1 x 75.3 x 7.1-9.4mm and weights 152 grams.
Connectivity series include 4G LTE / 3G HSPA+, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth Smart Ready (Apt-X) 4.1, NFC, SlimPort, A-GPS / Glonass and USB 2.0.
