LG flexes its Flagship Muscle with the LG G Flex 2

LG G Flex 2

CES 2015 is live, and there’s a whole lot going on in the wide world of tech. One of the first announcements of the day was also one of the coolest, and it comes from LG. The company officially unveiled their next flagship phone, and it’s called the LG G Flex 2.

The original G Flex was an interesting device, but a bit gimmicky as it wasn’t widely available and it flew under the radar when compared to devices like the Galaxy S5 or the HTC One M8. That isn’t the case with the LG G Flex 2, it is a beastly handset that’s easy on the eyes and should be a bit easier on your pocket as well.

As you’d expect, the LG G Flex 2 is a device with a bit of a curve just like its predecessor. The display is of the P-OLED variety, the same material used in the LG G Watch R, but the display is a bit smaller this time around. That cool “self-healing” back makes a return although its mutant healing factor has increased so it can now heal itself in seconds instead of minutes. Now let’s take a look at those specs…

  • 5-inch P-OLED display 1,920 x 1,080
  • Octa-Core 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 810
  • Adreno 430 GPU
  • 2GB of RAM
  • 32GB of storage (expandable up to 128GB)
  • 13MP rear camera with laser assisted AF and OIS
  • 1MP front-facing camera
  • Bluetooth 4.1, WiFi, NFC, USB 2.0, 4G LTE
  • 3,000mAh battery
  • Android 5.0 Lollipop

The original G Flex was a “nice” smartphone, but the LG G Flex 2 is a full-blown flagship. It’s the first handset to rock the new 64-bit Snapdragon 810, and it’s the only phone with a self-healing back and flexible/curved display. LG hasn’t announced an official release date for the G Flex 2 yet, but it is expected to hit South Korea later this month before starting its global rollout soon after.
