LG G Flex 2 UK release date set for late February

Following the phone’s CES 2015 unveiling, LG has confirmed that its innovative new LG G Flex 2 handset is heading to the UK.

A direct follow-on to the 2013-released original G Flex, the new model pairs LG’s innovative, flexible Plastic OLED display with Qualcomm’s latest 64-bit Snapdragon 810 processor.

For those interested in the left-field smartphone, the Korean manufacturer has now confirmed that the LG G Flex 2 UK release date will be held in ‘late February’.

Although LG has confirmed the Galaxy Note Edge rival and LG G3 sibling will be handed a pre-MWC in-store release, an exact date of launch is still unclear.

Similarly, finalised LG G Flex 2 pricing is yet to be announced, although LG has suggested the handset will land with a ‘premium’ price tag.
