LG just announced that it's ready to begin the global rollout of the G Flex 2, its first smartphone to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor. While the G Flex 2 is already available to buy in South Korea, customers in other markets will only get it in March.
As revealed last week, Sprint will launch the G Flex 2 on March 13. LG is now confirming that "other major carriers" in the US will start selling the handset in the weeks following MWC 2015 (which ends on March 5). AT&T and US Cellular will certainly be among those carriers. Folks in the UK, France, Germany, Hong Kong, and Singapore will be able to buy the new G Flex at about the same time.
Besides being powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor, the LG G Flex 2 offers plenty of other attractive features. Like last year's G Flex, the new smartphone has a curved, flexible body, and a self-healing back cover. Its screen is a 5.5-inch 1080p one, while Android 5.0 Lollipop comes pre-installed. Other features include a 13 MP rear camera with laser auto focus, 3 GB of RAM, and a 3000 mAh battery with fast charging capabilities.
