After somewhat taking us by surprise with the LG G Flex which was in the true sense the first smartphone that could bend and have a self-healing body, LG has decided to bring in its successor at the most glamorous tech event in CES. There had been several leaks as well as teasers in the form of posters and official artwork which kind of showed off the phone and what LG had in mind, but the phone was finally made public yesterday in LG’s press event in Las Vegas.
The smartphone in every way is an upgrade over the LG G Flex both in terms of design and specifications. The LG G Flex 2 takes heavy design cues from the LG G3 in terms of a clean bezel-less display. The phone has an interesting new P-LED display with a 1080 P resolution, which is an improvement over the 720 P display from the original G Flex.
The screen size is now 5.5 inches when measured diagonally, which makes the phone a little more handy and pocketable. There is Gorilla Glass 3 on to ensure security of the display too. It is powered by Snapdragon 810 and has 2 GB of RAM and runs Android Lollipop out of the box. There is a 13 MP rear camera on the device with laser auto focus and OIS. There is a micro SD expansion along with 16 or 32 GB of internal storage. There is LTE on board along with all the other regular connectivities. The device will initially be available in Silver and Red variants and will go on sale first in South Korea followed by other countries.
