LG G FLEX2 BEGINS GLOBAL ROLLOUT

  • Updated
  • 25-02-2015

 

 

London, 25th February, 2015 — The eagerly anticipated G Flex2 from LG Electronics (LG) will begin its global rollout in the weeks to come with availability on the Sprint network in the United States and followed by key markets in Europe and Asia. Since it’s unveiling in January at CES 2015, the G Flex2 has garnered much acclaim for its stylish looks, nimble performance and UX features optimised for its unique form factor. It was one of the most talked about new products at CES, scooping up a trove of best-in-show accolades. 

Set within the G Flex2’s contoured shape is a 5.5-inch Full HD Plastic-OLED display that delivers an incredibly sharp and vivid viewing experience from every angle while providing a sleeker look with enhanced durability. Improvements continue below the surface where an octa-core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 810 processor delivers performance as impressive as the phone’s design. Its Self Healing back cover now heals everyday scratches in just 10 seconds and the smartphone’s Fast Charge feature charges the 3000mAh battery to almost 50 percent in a little over half an hour. 

To create a better user experience, the G Flex2 offers an upgraded Gesture Shot which makes it easier than ever to take selfies with just a hand gesture. LG has extended the distance from which the camera can recognise one’s hand to 1.5 meters, perfect for today’s popular selfie sticks. The new Gesture View makes it convenient to check one’s last shot immediately after taking a photo and Glance View displays key information such as time, recent messages or missed calls with a downward swipe of the curved screen even while the display is off. 

“The G Flex2 shows the world that there’s still room for design innovation in today’s smartphones beyond just metal frames and larger displays,” said Juno Cho, president and CEO of the LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “We think the G Flex2 is the perfect example of form and function coming together beautifully. It’s a smartphone that people simply won’t be able to take their eyes off of.” 

The LG G Flex2 will be exclusively available in the UK at Vodafone, Carphone Warehouse from March  2015 with other partners coming on board at a later date.
