CES 2015: LG G Flex 2 with curved 5.5-inch display announced. The original G Flex earned positive reviews for its innovative design. One year later, the G Flex2 improves upon its predecessor in every way possible with a more advanced design, dynamically curved design, faster performance and most importantly, greater convenience. The G Flex2 is the first smartphone officially announced to come equipped with the Snapdragon 810 processor, featuring Octa-Core 64-bit capable CPUs optimized for Android 5.0 and the advanced Qualcomm Adreno 430 GPU for stunning graphics performance.

The LG G Flex's 5.5-inch display gets a bump up to Full HD, while the updated software offers even more conveniences 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 P-OLED display, which gives the G Flex 2 its unique shape and durability, is even more precise than in the original G Flex.
The LG G Flex 2 boasts sleeker, more stylish curves and a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor with Octa-Core 64-bit capable CPUs for a nimbler and smoother performance.
The G Flex2 goes beyond its predecessor's groundbreaking 700mm radius curved profile. The new smartphone harmoniously incorporates a symphony of curves ranging from a radius of 400mm to 700mm across the front, back, sides and top-to-bottom edges. The dynamically curved layers deliver a sleeker and more dynamic look to G Flex 2.
The Self Healing back, which keeps the phone looking new even through the nicks and scratches from normal everyday use, has also been improved with significantly faster healing time. LG reduced the healing time from about three minutes to just with in ten seconds at room temperature.
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.
+ 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.
+ GlanceView 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 Flex 2 - the only curved mobile battery in the world to be charged up to 50 percent in under 40 minutes.
