Well folks it’s finally here, the long rumored successor to the LG G Flex has finally been made official at CES 2015. LG’s conference at CES today kicked off with TV talk and then moved forward into smart appliances, finally, LG ended the conference by showing off the LG G Flex 2. Let us just start off by saying that the G Flex 2 is a thing of beauty and that it address all of the issues consumers had with the original G Flex.
As for the specs of the G Flex 2, they are as follows.
- 5.5-inch 1080 x 1920 P-OLED display (403 ppi)
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 810
- 2GB or 3GB of RAM (depending upon region)
- 16GB or 32GB with microSD card slot
- 13MP camera with OIS+, laser autofocus, dual flash
- 2.1MP front-facing camera
- 3,000 mAh battery
- Android 5.0 Lollipop
As you can see from the specs, the G Flex 2 sits somewhere comfortably between the G3 and whatever LG’s new flagship for this year will be. Taking a look at the design of the phone, the first thing you are probably going to notice is the noticeable curve to the entire phone. This curve is what gives the G Flex 2 its uniqueness as no other smartphone currently on the market has a curve like it. You will also notice that LG is continuing their design choice of putting the volume rocker as well as the power button on the back of the phone, right where your fingers should naturally rest when holding it. Last but not least is the very shiny back cover of the G Flex 2. This was done to give the device a more premium and expensive appearance as this is how LG will be marketing this phone.
Design isn’t all this device has going for it, it also comes with some great and useful features. Fast charge, this is LGs version of Quick Charge that allows the G Flex 2 to charge up to 50% in just 40 minutes. Then there is the front facing camera that knows when you are using a selfie stick by what angle and height the phone is at. Hold the phone up high while pointing at your face and it will switch to the camera, bring the device back down and it switches to your image preview to give you look at what you just shot. And of course, what would a new member of the G Flex family be without a self-healing back panel? That’s right, the G Flex 2 has a self-healing back similar to the original G Flex. LG says that most scratches on the back of the device will disappear in about 10 minutes.
All in all, the G Flex 2 looks like it is going to be a nice competitor against 2015’s flagship smartphones. You can take a look at the page LG has created for the G Flex 2 on their website by clicking here.
