LG has today announced its launch plans for the new G Flex 2, which is available immediately in a number of key markets, including the U.S. and the U.K. Other countries will be receiving the device in the weeks following Mobile World Congress.
Its 5.5-inch display, which now boasts a full 1080p resolution, makes the phone a little more compact, while its 64-bit Snapdragon 810 processor make it faster than any of the LG smartphones that came before it.
It’s also got 2GB of RAM, up to 32GB of internal storage, a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera with optical image stabilization, and a microSD card slot.
The G Flex 2 retains the self-healing back panel and flexible form factor that was a big selling point of the original G Flex, and adopts the unique laser auto focus camera from the G3. It also ships with LG’s latest Lollipop software pre-installed.
“Major carriers in the United States, Hong Kong, Singapore, France, Germany and the U.K. will be among the first to offer the G Flex2 to lucky customers,” LG said in its press release, “while key markets in North and South America, Europe and Asia will announce the start of sales in the weeks following MWC.”
You can pre-order the G Flex 2 now through Sprint, with prices starting at $504 or $21 a month over two years. Other carriers are expected to announce availability soon. In the U.K., the G Flex 2 can be had from Carphone Warehouse, where it’s priced at £530 SIM-free.
