It's official now. LG has confirmed the release date of the 'bendable' G Flex 2, the successor of the popular G Flex, as 19th March in the UK.
Pre-orders with Carphone Warehouse can be placed from 28th February onwards but it is actually Vodafone who have secured exclusive rights for the initial six weeks after its launch to offer customers various plans, including 4G plans with a choice of lucrative offers like Sky Sports Mobile TV, Spotify Premium and NOW TV Entertainment Pass, along with the G Flex 2.
Even though the release date has been announced, we are yet to hear from LG on the price tag of the G Flex 2.
The 152 g gadget features the Snapdragon 810 processor for the first time, the G Flex 2 will also pack an internal storage of 16GB to go with a 2GB RAM as well as microSD card for 32GB expansion.
The powerful 13MP rear camera features an optical image stabilisation (OIS+), dual-LED two-tone flash, and laser-guided autofocus system. Perched upon the Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system, LG's G Flex 2 also features a 1080×1920 pixels display with full HD curved P-OLED capability. However, the stand-out feature of the G Flex 2 will be the 'bendability' as well as its self-healing surface, which is now rumoured to heal from scratches inside 10 seconds.
If you were concerned with the stamina and the G Flex 2's ability to withstand heavy usage for long periods, you need not worry as the new 3000mAH non-removable battery will be coming with a rapid charging feature.
This will let you charge your G Flex 2 from 0 to 50 percent inside 40 minutes. The G Flex 2's features and it's predecessors' reputation surely places it in a good stead in the post MWC market.
However, we'll wait for the price tag to be announced first before drawing conclusions.
