LG’s press conference which will take place in a few hours at CES2015 in Las Vegas and streamed live over the Internet is mostly about the G Flex 2, second generation flexible smartphone powered by Google Android operating system.
We’ve already heard rumours and recently seen a press image of it, however, the specs sheet of the bendable device remained somewhat a secret, until now.
With only a few hours ahead of its official unveil on stage at CES2015, the smartphone is breaking cover in hands-on pictures revealing not only its design but also the full hardware details. The G Flex 2 feature a 5.5 inch POLED Full HD display with a pixel density of 403ppi and 20% more toughened glass to protect the screen, it is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 SoC with a 2GHz octa-core 64-bit processor, 2GB of RAM and 32GB of built-in storage.
Additionally, the G Flex 2 comes with 4G LTE, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0 and micro USB 2.0 connectivity, a 3,000 mAh battery underneath its Self Healing housing, technology that LG says it has been improved. The phone weighs in at 152 grams and measures 9.4 mm in thickness.
The curved and flexible G Flex 2 also includes some special features like the Gesture Shot which allows one to take pictures from 1.5 meters away, Gesture View to be able to view the latest shot, Glance View which is a swipe down for notifications feature that works with the lock screen, even while the screen is off, and Fast Charging feat that allows up to 50% battery charge in less than 40 minutes time (this sounds cool).
