LG G Flex 2 pre-orders start on Feb 27

First unveiled at CES 2015, LG's G Flex 2 will soon be coming to Singapore.

The phone is priced at $998, with pre-orders starting on Feb 27. It will officially be released two weeks later, on March 14.

The 5.5-inch smartphone is a follow up to LG's first curved smartphone, the G Flex, but now boasts a Full HD P-OLED display. It will also be the first smartphone in the world powered by Qualcomm's new octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor.

Running on Android 5.0 Lollipop, the G Flex 2 will also be one of the first phones supporting LTE Cat 9, which boasts download speeds of up to 450mbps.

As with the original G Flex, the G Flex 2 boasts an ergonomically curved shape, with the top and bottom of the phone curving inwards. For the G Flex 2, LG has reduced the size of the phone, shrinking it to a 5.5-inch (down from the original 6-inch) and has also gently curved the phone horizontally (albeit much less than its vertical curve) for improved handling and grip.

The phone will be available in Platinum Silver (which is very similar to the original G Flex colour) and a new Flamenco Red. Both finishes sport the innovative self-healing material used on the original G Flex.
