LG G Flex 2 shown off in extended video

LG has released a longer version of the promotional video for the LG G Flex 2 it showed at CES.

The video is 1:31 long and offers a more in-depth look at the handset. Highlights include how the curved design fits your hand better, and a rundown of the specs.

The video seems to be inspired by Tron, with lights racing over the curved back of the handset.

According to the video, the curved 5.5-inch display offers an immersive viewing experience. LG and Samsung say much the same thing about their curved TVs. In fact, LG recently said its curved tellies would outsell the flat options this year.

The video also bigs up the G Flex 2’s ability to heal scratches in under 10 seconds, the optical image stabilisation for steadier photos and the same laser autofocus seen on the Trusted Reviews award-winning LG G3. It also touts the phone’s multitasking skills.

Inside the handset is a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chip alongside 3GB of RAM. It has the same 13-megaixel snapper as the G3, with the aforementioned same laser focus. A 2.1-megapixel secondary camera sits on the front.

It runs Android 5.0 Lollipop and is powered by a 3,000mAh battery. 40 minutes of charging will get the battery to 50 per cent.

The handset will reach these shores in late February, and come in Platinum Silver and Flamenco Red colour options.
