The original G Flex diverted from the typical norms of “today’s smartphone”. It sported one of the first curved displays, and was slightly flexible. However, it had another trick up its sleeve that made the phone itself way more impressive, and that was the ability to heal itself. Small scratches and dings on the back of the device faded away after leaving it for a while.
Fast forward almost, if not 2 years ahead, and we now have the official LG G Flex 2. If you’re one of those who prefer curved devices over the typical flat designs, you’re in for a treat. The LG G Flex 2 sports a 5.5 inch 1080p curved display, 2GB RAM, 13MP OIS Rear Facing Camera, and best of all, it’s one of the first Snapdragon 810 powered smartphone!
As good as those specs sound, the self-healing back panel is here again and now has a huge boost in speed. The original G Flex took approximately 3 minutes to heal, whereas the G Flex 2 now claims to heal itself in 10 seconds. In addition, the glass covering the curved display claims to be 20% stronger than before.
In terms of software, we have Android 5.0 Lollipop running on top of LG’s custom skin which gives us LG specific software enhancements like Gesture Shot, Gesture View and all that good stuff.
The LG G Flex 2 will be launching in 2 different colors (silver and red), later this month in South Korea and we can expect availability to other areas soon after.
