LG has launched the G Flex2 in SA, with the company confirming the device will be exclusive to Vodacom at R469 per month on the Smart S package.
LG said the contract will include a protective jelly case, and that the first 500 customers to sign up will receive a free Tone Pro headset.
It also warned there are only a limited number of G Flex2 handsets available in the country.
LG first unveiled the LG G Flex2 during its press event at CES in Las Vegas at the start of January, promising greater durability and user-friendliness than its predecessor.
Among the software features LG highlighted was Glance View, which lets you swipe down from the lock screen to turn on only a part of the OLED display to show notifications, as well as the time and date.
The device’s self-healing skin works in just 10 seconds, LG said, adding that compared to the original G Flex the durability of the G Flex2 has been improved by 30%.
