LG G Flex2 With 5.5-Inch Curved Display Launched at Rs. 55,000

LG has launched its second-generation curved display smartphone in India, the G Flex2, priced at Rs. 55,000. The smartphone will be available from this month in Platinum Silver and Flamenco Red colours.

The LG G Flex2when announced back in January at CES 2015 was the first smartphone to run Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 (a 64-bit octa-core SoC). It is coupled with the Adreno 430 GPU and 2GB of LPDDR4 RAM. The single-SIM smartphone runs Android 5.0 Lollipop and features a 5.5-inch full-HD curved P-OLED display with a 1080x1920 pixels resolution and a 403ppi pixel density.

The LG G Flex2's display has a 700mm-radius curvature, while the back is slightly sharper with a 650mm-radius curvature for grip. LG says the Corning Gorilla Glass 3 has been toughened approximately 20 percent from the previous generation with the firm's own special chemical treatment technology - LG calls this Dura-Guard glass. The whole phone is supposedly 30 percent more durable than the original.

The company has also improved upon the 'Self Healing' back from the original LG G Flex, and it will now get healed within 10 seconds at room temperature - significantly lower than the last-generation's three minutes.

The LG G Flex2 sports a rear 13.0-megapixel camera with optical image stabilisation (OIS+), dual-LED two-tone flash, and laser-guided autofocus just like the LG G3. It sports a 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera. The G Flex2 will come in 16GB and 32GB storage variants that are expandable via microSD card.
