LG has just released the official video on YouTube for its latest and greatest flexible smartphone called the G Flex 2. Recently shown off at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the phone is the company’s flagship device that packs some seriously impressive specifications.
As you can see in the video, the phone is pretty huge, but is actually slightly smaller than the previous generation and is said to be slightly easier to hold. The ergonomics of the curve, rather than being a gimmick, help make the phone extremely comfortable to hold according to those who have seen the pre-release version.
The screen in the new model is a 5.5-inch Full HD display, and while that’s not quite as impressive as the Quad-HD screens on some of the newest smartphones, you can’t really go wrong with 1,920 x 1,080 pixels for watching videos. It also means that the screen is extremely sharp, clear and crips, with very vivid colours.
The G Flex 2 has some seriously impressive hardware inside. Besides the 1080p flexible display, Android 5.0 Lollipop one of the first phones to use the latest 64-bit octa-core Snapdragon 810 chip, it’s an really cutting edge smartphone that is one of the most powerful phones available today. Android Authority has conducted some benchmarks and found it’s one of the fastest out there.
Besides the CPU and screen, some of the features from the previous model have also been improved in the G Flex 2. The self-healing back cover now heals minor scratches in as little as ten seconds, which is much faster than the original. Furthermore, it also has a better laser-based camera focus system than the outgoing device.
At CES, the G Flex 2 was consistently one of the top picks for lots of the tech websites, mainly due to its impressive HD screen and curved display, as well as the build quality and its sheer performance.
