In one of the first announcements hours ahead of Mobile World Congress, the LG G Flex 2 smartphone is available for pre-order in Vodafone UK.
Once ordered, you could get the G Flex 2 in your palm as early as on March 12th.
An upgraded version of the popular LG G Flex, the new phone comes with a 5.5 inch Full HD curved display, more advanced than the P-OLED curved display in its pedecessor. The quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor also makes way for a new octa-core Snapdragon 810 chip which is much faster and provides for additional memory.
In a welcome move, the G Flex 2 has been designed to be much lighter at 152g as compared to 177g of the G Flex released in late 2013. The dimensions are also lesser at 149.1 x 75.3 x 8.9 as against 160.5 x 81.6 x 8.7 mm of the earlier model.
The phone's software will be based on the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop OS which will combine with the 64-bit CPU to provide a faster and smoother performance than the G Flex delivered. The new 13MP Laser auto-focus camera also brings in a world of clarity and perfection, using a Laser beam to calculate distances between the phone and the subject in low light conditions. The 'Gesture shot' will enable users to take perfect selfies with a simple hand gesture from a distance as much as 1.5 metres away.
The unique Self Healing technology is also much improved in the G Flex 2, enabling the device to recover from scratches and wear and tear in as quick as ten seconds in normal conditions.
With an internal storage of 16GB, the additional microSD slot provides an additional space of an amazing 128GB. New users will be able to adapt quickly with the built-in e-mail and instant Google Play accessibility.
Vodafone is offering the G Flex 2 for free along with 24-month payment plans on 4G services ranging from as low as £34.50 a month to £44.50 a month. The first 500 customers to pre-order the new device will also recieve a sparkling new LG G Watch R on subscribing to plans from £39.50 a month onwards.
The G Flex 2's specifications surely make it a major upgrade over the G Flex, which wasn't disappointing to say the least. The latest features like the octa-core chip, advanced curve design and excellent display make it a winner among contemporary smartphones.
MWC is surely hotting up!
