LG G Flex 2 officially launches on January 30 in South Korea, costs over $700

Undoubtedly one of the most interesting smartphones announced at CES 2015, LG's G Flex 2 will be officially released on January 30 in South Korea - which, of course, will become the first market to get the new handset. While we already knew that the G Flex 2 would be available in Korea by the end of the month, until now LG didn't provide an exact launch date.

All three South Korean mobile carriers will offer the G Flex 2. The curved, flexible smartphone will cost 800,000 Korean won - meaning about $737. That's more than we were expecting, by the way.

The G Flex 2 is LG's first handset to feature Qualcomm's 64-bit octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor, as well as the company's first device to run Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box. The G Flex 2 has the same form factor of the original G Flex, though it's smaller, thanks to the fact that it sports a 5.5-inch 1080p display. The new handset features a self-healing back cover, a 2.1 MP front-facing camera, 13 MP rear camera wit laser autofocus, 32 GB of expandable internal memory, and a 3000 mAh battery. It looks like the Korean G Flex 2 has only 2 GB of RAM, instead of 3 GB like the international variant.

After hitting shelves in South Korea, the G Flex 2 will be available around the world - including in the US, where AT&T, Sprint and US Cellular are all getting ready to sell it.

So, who's looking forward to buying the world's first curved Lollipop smartphone?
