LG G Flex 2 launches on March 13 in the US (via Sprint)
LG already released the G Flex 2 in its home country (South Korea), but what about the rest of the world? Well, the new smartphone will be available in the US starting March, with Sprint possibly being the first carrier to sell it. Sprint just announced that it would launch the G Flex 2 on March 13, with pre-orders starting tomorrow, February 20.

Sprint will allow customers to get the G Flex 2 for $0 down with "24 easy monthly payments of $21," or for around $500 off contract. As previously reported, Sprint will offer an exclusive "volcano red" version of the G Flex 2, in addition to a silver version (this will also be sold by AT&T and US Cellular).

The G Flex 2 is smaller, yet more powerful than the first-generation LG G Flex. The handset is one of the world's first to use Qualcomm's 64-bit, octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor, as well as one of LG's first handsets to run Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box. Other notable features include a 5.5-inch 1080p P-OLED display, a self-healing back cover, 13 MP rear camera with laser auto focus, 3 GB of RAM, 32 GB of expandable storage space, and a 3000 mAh battery. The curved, flexible body of the G Flex 2 weighs 152 grams, and measures 149.1 x 75.3 x 9.4 mm.

March is also when the LG G Flex 2 should be released in Europe, as well as in more Asian markets (including Singapore). Do you plan to buy the new LG G Flex?

This phone lags harder than any lowend I ever seen. Go and watch Pocketnow review of flex 2. Skip to 3:00 to see the epic lags while scrrolling a mobile website without pictures, just text alone. Hahahba, lag's good, ain't it lg? LG just gives bad name to all android devices. All their flagships are just one big lagfest. Oh, the batter life is garbage and the phone overheats like crazy. "SD810 is so good," said LG.

The lag is caused by the aggressive thermal throttling and dvfs mechanisms built into the S810, even the Adreno 430 in that SoC struggles to maintain stable clock frequencies while under load. The S810 is a bad chip and Qualcomm's damage control won't save it.

Or because the 810 fails to deliver.

Hopefully T-Mobile doesn't take too long in releasing it. It's a tough choice. This seems like it would definitely be a step up from my G3 in most aspects, and having a curved, flexible, POLED screened phone is a rather unique thing. On the other hand, I would also like to see what the G4 brings to the table, and Samsung sounds like they might really be onto something exciting with the upcoming S6, especially the rumored Edge variant. I suppose I will just wait until both Samsung and LG have shown their best before making a decision. Good things come to those who are patient.

LG shouldn't wonder why they sell a small number of G Flex 2 when they give it to Sprint as exclusive for 3 or 6 months. I hope Phonemakers make their products widely available like Motorola or Apple.

I wonder how fast will someone make a "Spin the bottle" app... Oh wait, this phone won't need it... because you can spin the phone instead!!! All you need is a photo of an apple. Perhaps

Damn! I meant BOTTLE. Hey! I could write an app that shoes you a picture of a bottle and cash my hard earned paycheck... :)

That pricing must be for their lease program, seems too good to be true that it is the cost for the full MSRP.
