LG G Flex 2 hits UK bundled with free G Watch R

LG’s latest bendable phone is finally here, with the LG G Flex 2 hitting UK networks following its CES unveiling.

A follow-on to the 2013 released LG G Flex, the second-generation curved handset is available through Vodafone starting today, March 12.

Looking to sweeten the deal and tempt further potential owners into taking the novel handset plunge, the red network has confirmed it will bundle the G Flex 2 with a free LG G Watch R smartwatch.

“The new LG G Flex 2 is now available at Vodafone UK,” an official company spokesperson told TrustedReviews.

They added: “Customers who buy the device on a RED 4G plan will receive a LG G Watch R at no additional cost (while stocks last).”

Aside from its curved and flexible 5.5-inch Plastic-OLED display, the G Flex 2 bundles a self-healing back with a 13-megapixel primary camera and secondary, 2.1-megapixel, shooter up front.

The first commercially available handset to run a 1.5GHz octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor, the G Flex 2’s specs sheet is rounded off by Android 5.0, Lollipop, 3GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage.

For those tempted by the G3’s flexy sibling, the handset isn’t coming cheep – even if early adopters are rewarded by a free Android Wear watch.

Tied to a 24-month contract, the G Flex 2 set wannabe owners back £39.50 per month, as well as a one-off £19 up-front fee.
