LG Electronics was the first manufacturer to introduce a smartphone with some serious curves -- and by curves, we mean a curved display. LG’s second-generation curved display smartphone, the LG G Flex 2, is now official, and carrier AT&T has confirmed it will offer the device.
LG uses the tagline “redefining the curve” for the LG G Flex 2, having updated the curved design, hardware specifications and software features. Accident-prone users may be interested in the device for its advanced self-healing back panel, which prevents wear and tear from most scratches and nicks that come with everyday use.
Another standout feature on the LG G Flex 2 is its 3000mAh battery, which includes a fast charger that enables a charge up to 50 percent in 40 minutes.
Hardware specifications for the LG G Flex 2 include a vertically curved 5.5-inch Full HD display and the latest 800 series Qualcomm Snapdragon chip. The LG G Flex 2 also includes 32 GB of internal storage, a 13-megapixel camera with OIS+, laser auto focus and dual LED flash, as well as a 2.1-megapixel front camera. It runs the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system.
AT&T said it will announce pricing and availability details for the LG G Flex 2 at a later date.
