The EUR 599 price tag is similar to what most flagships launch with in the continent.
The G Flex 2 is LG’s second attempt at finding out if there is enough demand in the market for devices with curved screens. Unlike the original G Flex, the second iteration is more of a flagship phone, with top of the line specs like a Full HD display and a Snapdragon 810 display, but it’s possible the G Flex 2 will launch for a lesser price than its predecessor.
The G Flex 2 has been listed by Amazon Germany and Amazon Italy for EUR 599, a price at which most flagships usually launch in Europe. That’s a tad north of $600 if we talk about a US launch, and with stateside carriers usually offering devices on a contract, the G Flex 2 looks like a device that could offer the advantages of a curved display at a standard price rather than one that drives consumers away.
Of course, nothing is final until LG officially announces it, but it certainly would be a good move from the Korean manufacturer to launch the G Flex 2 at such a normal price tag, especially if it intends to compete with Samsung’s Galaxy Note Edge. For those unaware, the G Flex 2 features a 5.5-inch 1080p display that curves on the top and bottom, an octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor, 2GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel rear camera with optical image stabilization, a 3,000mAh battery, and Android 5.0 Lollipop. The phone also sports a self-healing back, and will be offered in 16/32GB of expandable on-board storage.
