The latest G Flex iteration is powered by a Snapdragon 810 64-bit octa-core processor with an Adreno 430 GPU, making the G Flex 2 the first (soon-to-be) widely released device to offer Qualcomm’s latest processing package. In addition to the killer chipset, the phone will come with either 2 or 3GB RAM, depending on whether you choose the 16GB or 32GB storage configuration for the device. Regardless of what model you get, the G Flex 2 also brings a microSD card slot with recognition for cards up to 2TB. No, that’s not a typo. skd:skd
Moving on to other specs and features, the LG G Flex 2 has a 5.5-inch 1080p P-OLED display, which should provide a noticeable improvement over the 6-inch 720p P-OLED display found in the first-gen G Flex. Beyond improving the display’s resolution and bringing down the size, LG also promises 20% more durability when compared to the last-gen G Flex thanks to LG’s chemically enhanced DuraGuard technology. As for the curving abilities of the handset, the G Flex 2 improved beyond its predecessor’s 700mm radius curved profile by offering a range from 400 to 700mm across the front, back, sides and top-to-bottom edges.
The camera experience here is rather similar to the LG G3, with LG providing a 2.1MP front cam, and 13MP rear shooter with OIS+ and laser focus. That said, it is important to note that LG promises slightly faster focusing and other minor improvements that should result in a great photographic experience.
