LG announces the G Flex 2 with a 5.5-inch curved display, Snapdragon 810 CPU

The G Flex 2 also features a self-healing back like its predecessor.


As expected, LG has unveiled the G Flex 2 at CES 2015, more than a year after the original G Flex was announced. The G Flex 2 curves at the top and bottom like its predecessor, but comes with a smaller, 5.5-inch P-OLED display. The smaller display does have a higher resolution this time around (1080p), hinting that LG is taking its new curved device more seriously than it did the G Flex.

The G Flex 2 also retains the self-healing back of the first G Flex. LG is touting a healing time of 10 seconds for day-to-day nicks and scratches, and the back comes with a handcrafted spin hairline pattern. The G Flex 2 has another important feature – it is the first smartphone to be officially announced with a Snapdragon 810 chipset, which supports 64-bit processing and is Qualcomm’s first eight-core high-end SoC.

In the imaging department, the G Flex 2 features a setup similar to the LG G3, with a 13-megapixel rear camera that comes with optical image stabilization and laser autofocus. Other specs of the device include 16/32GB of internal storage, a microSD slot, 2GB of DDR4 RAM, a 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera, a 3,000mAh battery, and Android 5.0 Lollipop. 4G LTE connectivity is naturally on-board as well.

The G Flex 2 will launch in South Korea by the end of this month in Platinum Silver and Flamenco Red colors. A launch in the U.S. and other markets is planned later on, though LG hasn’t shared more information on availability, nor the handset’s price.
