At CES international technology trade show in Las Vegas, LG announced one of the most unique smartphones in recent years - the G Flex 2.
Just like its predecessor, the G Flex that was unveiled almost two years ago, the G Flex 2 features a curved body. It offers significant design improvements over the original model, while also including better specs and more polished software.
The device has a 5.5-inch 1080p resolution display, an octa-core 64-bit processor, 2GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel rear shooter with improved optical image stabilization and laser-based autofocus, a 2.1-megapixel front facing camera, NFC, and IR-blaster. It will come with either 16GB or 32GB of internal memory. If that's not enough for your needs, you can easily expand it using the microSD card slot, which supports up to a whooping 2TB of storage.
Arched back cover of the phone is made of more durable, scratch-resistant plastic, whereas the display is covered by the latest iteration of Gorilla Glass. Moreover, the glass can "heal" itself over time and absorb minor scratches on the screen.
The LG G Flex 2 is running Android 5.0 Lollipop as its operating system. The software has been tweaked to take advantage of the device's curved form factor. Gestures allow you to perform quick actions and access special functions, such as unique photography enhancements and ability to display time and notifications even while the display is off.
The phone will launch in South Korea this month followed by other markets later, though pricing has not been disclosed yet.
