It's like the original G Flex, but better

The LG G Flex 2 is a more realistic spin on yesterday’s crazy idea

As we reported in our pre-CES coverage, LG is back with the sequel to last year’s original G Flex smartphone – and this time, you might actually want it.

Whereas last year’s model featured a ridiculously large 6-inch display, the G Flex 2 has a much more manageable (yet still very, very large) 5.5-inch display. That’s still firmly in “phablet” territory, but let’s be real here – last year’s G Flex felt more like a small tablet than a big smartphone. The technology inside that warped body is also much improved; whereas the original G Flex had a 720p display, the new model features a 1080p resolution – a noticeable improvement over the older model at this screen size.

LG says this new G Flex 2 is 20% more durable than last year’s model, and is able to recover from more scratches, more easily than last ear’s model using an improved version of the company’s unique self-healing finish found on the back of the phone, whereas Gorilla Glass 3 strengthens the front.

There’s a next generation Snapdragon 810 processor inside, one of the first mass market a 64-bit mobile processors to make their way into an Android device. There’s also a 13 megapixel camera on the back and a 2.1 megapixel front-facing camera, for all your selfie needs.

The LG G Flex 2 will ship later this first quarter on AT&T, Sprint, and U.S. Cellular calling first dibs in the United States. Pricing has yet to be announced, however LG did say that the company is considering this a niche, high-end device that will likely cost more than the existing (and more capable) LG G3.

LG’s curved phone making its way to Sprint for $299




lg_g_flex_2Perhaps you’ve seen LG’s new G Flex phone, one of the very first curved smartphones. Perhaps you’d like a curved 6-inch monster of a phone? AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint have all signed on to sell the device, but only Sprint has released pricing info and a release date for their version of the G Flex. If Sprint is your carrier then you can get a G Flex for $299 come January 31st.

But what if you want to throw your money at Sprint now and build up anticipation and excitement for the phone? That’s possible too as Sprint is taking pre-orders for the device. They’ll even throw in a free windowed cover (“A $59.99 value”) when you pre-order.
