LG G Flex2 Curved Smartphone Introduced At CES 2015

South Korean smartphones maker giant, LG Electronics has introduced improved version of G Flex curved smartphone known as LG G Flex 2  (LG) at the 2015 International CES in Las Vegas. The original G Flex was launched by LG almost one year ago.

gflex2__1420509695_48174 (1)The LG G Flex2 is the first smartphone, which is equipped with the Snapdragon 810 processor, featuring Octa-Core 64-bit capable CPUs optimized for Android 5.0 and the advanced Qualcomm Adreno 430 GPU for stunning graphics performance. The Snapdragon 810 also features fully integrated 3x20MHz Carrier Aggregation support for faster, more efficient connectivity.

The LG G Flex2 boasts sleeker, more stylish curves and comes with 5.5-inch Full HD display. The phone’s ergonomic design brings the microphone closer to the mouth, for better sound pickup compared to conventional smartphones which allow much more outside noise to enter the phone through the microphone. The slimmed down 5.5 inches screen with curvatures makes the perfect fit for eyes and the grip. The display’s 700mm radius curvature delivers a truly immersive viewing experience from any angle, while the steeper 650mm radius curvature of the back is more comfortable to grip and fits easier in the pocket. The display’s resolution has also been bumped up to 1080p Full HD. The P-OLED display, which gives the G Flex2 its unique shape and durability, is even more precise than in the original G Flex.

Moreover, the LG G Flex2’s cover glass is approximately 20 percent more durable, thanks to a special chemical treatment technology developed by LG.

The Self Healing back, which keeps the phone looking new even through the nicks and scratches from normal everyday use, has also been improved with significantly faster healing time. LG claims that it has reduced the healing time from about three minutes to just within ten seconds at room temperature.

The LG G Flex2 is also equipped with 13.0MP rear camera with OIS+ Laser Auto Focus, and also houses a front 2.1MP camera. The Laser Auto Focus camera was first introduced by LG in the popular LG G3. This technology enables the G Flex2 to capture the best moment ? even in low light ? by measuring the distance between the subject and the camera using a laser beam. Combined with LG’s proven OIS+ technology and dual LED flash, the G Flex2 delivers images that rival most standalone point and shoot cameras.

The LG G Flex2 comes fully loaded with the best of LG’s unique software features optimized for its curved form factor:

  • Gesture Shot makes it easy to capture the perfect selfie with a simple hand gesture recognizable from up to 1.5 meters away
  • Gesture View makes it easy to check your last shot immediately after taking a photo or selfie
  • Glance View displays key information such as time, recent messages or missed calls with a downward swipe of the curved screen even while the display is off
  • Fast Charge allows the embedded 3,000mAh battery in the G Flex2 ? the only curved mobile battery in the world to be charged up to 50 percent in under 40 minutes

The LG G Flex2 will be available starting at the end of the month in Korea to be followed by additional global markets. The device will initially be available in two colors: Platinum Silver and Flamenco Red.
