LG G Flex2 Is A Smaller, Curvier Snapdragon 810 Beast

LG brought out what will certainly be one of the most innovative products at this year's CES, the curved LG G Flex2. It's more compact and more powerful than its predecessor, more curved and heals faster.

Starting off with the display, LG's homemade P-Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) tech has improved over the last year and the recent classy screen has 1080p resolution (up from just 720p). Meanwhile the classy screen diagonal has shrunken a bit to the more manageable 5.5" (down from 6").

The classy screen is protected by an LG-developed glass cover that is assumed to be 20% more durable than Gorilla Glass 3. The back has a special self-healing coating – LG marked a massive improvement by cutting the heal time from 3 minutes to just 10 seconds at room temperature.

The body is a combination of multiple curves ranging from 400mm to 700mm radius. The classy screen is curved to a 700mm radius, which makes for an "immersive" experience (says LG) and brings the mic closer to your mouth. The back is curved to 650mm so it's easier to handle and fit in the pocket.

Anyway, the LG G Flex2 will be the most powerful device for a while – it will be the first to bring Snapdragon 810 in consumer hands and it only renders at 1080p (no QHD classy screen here). The phone will launch with Android 5.0 Lollipop and 2GB of RAM. For storage there's 16GB or 32GB, plus a microSD card.

The capturing camera has carried over improvements from the LG G3, including OIS+ and Laser Auto Focus. The capturing camera itself is a 13MP shooter with dual-LED flash, a 2.1MP capturing camera is on the front. Gesture shot makes selfies easier by recognizing a hand-gesture from 1.5m away. Gesture view will easily preview the selfie once captured.

The connectivity enjoys up to 300Mbps downloads over 4G LTE, but has 3G too (42Mbps). Locally Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) a/b/g/n/ac and Bluetooth 4.1 with Apt-X handle wireless connectivity. There's a microUniversal Serial Bus (USB) 2.0 port with SlimPort for TV out and FastCharge to quickly fill the 3,000mAh battery.

The LG G Flex2 will come in Platinum Silver and Flamenco Red, first in South Korea at the discontinue of the month followed by other regions.
