LG has announced that the LG G Flex 2 has begun its global rollout.
Yesterday saw confirmation of the LG G Flex 2‘s price and pre-order status through UK retailer Carphone Warehouse, but today sees official confirmation of the phone’s availability from LG itself.
LG has revealed that the United States, Hong Kong, Singapore, France, Germany and the U.K. will be the first to get the curvy phone from this week. Key markets in North and South America, Europe and Asia will get the phone in the weeks following MWC 2015, which commences on Monday.
The LG G Flex 2 was announce at CES 2015 back in January, offering a similar curved display to the original LG G Flex, but with much-improved specs.
It comes with a 5.5-inch Full HD P-OLED display, a Snapdragon 810 CPU, 2GB of RAM, and a choice of either 16GB or 32GB of internal storage. The G Flex 2 also has a microSD slot that can accept up to 2TB of expansion.
Around back there’s a 13-megapixel camera with OIS and laser focus (much like the LG G3), with a 2.1-megapixel front-facing snapper.
Android 5.0 Lollipop comes as standards, and there’s a 3,000mAh battery powering it all. The G Flex 2’s fast-charge ability will get it to 50 percent charge in just over half an hour.
But it’s that curved form factor that really sets the LG G Flex 2 apart, as well as its self-healing back, which can now heal everyday scratches in just 10 seconds.
