LG G Flex was clearly a niche attempt trying to test the water with a new form factor and considering how well it was received, LG has followed it up with the G Flex2. LG announced it at the CES and we managed to get our hands on briefly on the latest device.
The G Flex2 clearly looks more polished than its predecessor with a nice chrome outline on the side. The spin hairline pattern also adds to the look. LG has retained the silver colour option with the G Flex2 but also added a nicer looking Flamenco Red. The red variant will be exclusive to Sprint in the United States.
LG also claims to improve its self healing back, which now heals minor scuffs and scratches in under 10 seconds.
The phone runs Android 5.0 Lollipop with LG’s customised user interface, which frankly does not make you feel that you’re running Google’s latest Android version but nevertheless, the phone seemed responsive and fast enough due to 2GB RAM and Snapdragon 810 processor. The screen resolution remains the same at Full HD but the camera has been upgraded to G3-level with 13 megapixel camera sensor with OIS+ and laser auto focus. The 3000mAh battery is non-removable and supports microSIM card.
The phone will see a faster launch compared to the original G Flex with South Korea getting it first followed by other markets.
