The G Flex 2, featuring a 5.5-inch display that curves inward from top to bottom, is slightly smaller than its 6-inch predecessor. The smartphone will become available in the home market this month and gradually reach overseas markets later this year.
Equipped with a full HD plastic organic light-emitting diode (P-OLED) display, the G Flex 2 will provide users with an improved and more vivid definition compared to the original G Flex, the company said.’
The design, which resembles traditional telephones, also provides users with an improved sound quality, LG said.
The device carries Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 octa-core processor and is powered by the 3-band long-term evolution advanced (LTE-A) network, offering a download speed four times faster than the traditional LTE network. A 1GB movie can be downloaded in 27 seconds, LG said.
The gadget, operating on Android 5.0 Lollipop, has a 13 megapixel rear camera and a 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera. Its “gesture shot” feature allows users to take selfies by folding and then unfolding their hands, LG said.
Its 3,000 mAh battery, which cannot be separated, boasts a faster recharge speed, refilling 50 percent of its capacity in 40 minutes, which is 15 minutes faster than other batteries of the same size.
