LG announced the G Flex2 smartphone at its CES press conference in Las Vegas on Monday, 5 January 2015, promising greater durability and user-friendliness than its predecessor.
Much had been known about the device ahead of its launch, and LG did not even try to keep its upcoming announcement at CES secret.
The Korean electronics manufacturer has now confirmed that the LG G Flex2 will run on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 system-on-chip and revealed that it will be clocked at 2GHz.
Its self-healing skin works in just 10 seconds, LG said, adding that the durability of the G Flex2 had been enhanced by up to 30%.
Among the features of the device LG highlighted was Glance View, which lets you swipe down from the lock screen to turn on only a part of the organic light emitting diode (OLED) display to show notifications, and the time and date.
The LG G Flex2 will be powered by a 3,000mAh battery and run the latest version of Google’s mobile operating system, Android 5.0 “Lollipop”.
In a press release accompanying its announcement, LG said that G Flex2 will be available from the end of January 2015 in Korea, with launches in additional global markets to follow.
