LG showed the world that a smartphone can have a curve body with G Flex, and now
it is all set to introduce its successor – the G Flex2 in India. While the
original G Flex was recognised for its unique designing and out of the box
thinking, the G Flex2 improves upon its predecessor in every possible way. The G
Flex 2 comes with a more advanced design, faster performance and more
importantly greater convenience.
The LG G Flex2 boasts sleeker, more stylish curves and a powerful Qualcomm®
SnapdragonTM 810 processor with Octa-core 64-bit capable CPUs and integrated X10
LTE for a nimble, fast and smooth performance. Its 5.5-inch display gets a bump
up to Full HD, while the updated software offers even more convenience through
all-new features such as Gesture View and Glance View. The unique “Self-Healing”
back cover from the original G Flex carries over to the G Flex 2 and is now
faster and more effective than before.
The G Flex2’s curve are not just about the looks but is designed for a
comfortable user experience. The phone’s ergonomic design brings the microphone
closer to the mouth, for better sound pickup compared to conventional
smartphones which allow much more outside noise to enter the phone through the
microphone. Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 810 processor featuring octa-core 64-bit CPUs,
optimized for Android 5.0 and the advanced Qualcomm® Adreno™ 430 GPU ensures
stunning graphics performance and an integrated X10 LTE modem with CAT 9 LTE.
This makes the smartphone incredibly fast and efficient for multimedia and
multi-tasking. The Snapdragon 810 also features fully integrated 3x20MHz Carrier
Aggregation support for fast, efficient connectivity. Qualcomm Snapdragon
processors are a product of Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.
Another innovative technology only available in LG smartphones is the amazingly
fast Laser Auto Focus camera, first introduced in the popular LG G3. This
technology enables the G Flex2 to capture the best moment ― even in low light ―
by measuring the distance between the subject and the camera using a laser beam.
Combined with LG’s proven OIS+ technology and dual LED flash, the G Flex2
delivers images that rival most standalone point and shoot cameras
Practical Solutions for User Convenience
The G Flex2’s curve-enhanced user experience carries over to software
as well. It comes fully loaded with the best of LG’s unique software features
optimized for its curved form factor:
• Gesture Shot makes it easy to capture the perfect selfie with a simple hand
gesture recognizable from up to 1.5 meters away.
• Gesture View makes it easy to check your last shot immediately after taking a
photo or selfie.
• Glance View displays key information such as time, recent messages or missed
calls with a downward swipe of the curved screen even while the display is off.
• Fast Charge allows the embedded 3,000mAh battery in the G Flex2 ― the only
curved mobile battery in the world to be charged up to 50 percent in under 40
