Sprint's LG G Flex 2 will be available in an exclusive "volcano red" color
While Sprint doesn’t provide an exact launch date yet, it says that its G Flex 2 will be available to buy this quarter (thus in March the latest). Pricing details haven’t been revealed, but the new smartphone will likely not cost less than $199 on contract. Sprint will be the only US mobile operator to offer the G Flex 2 in “volcano red” - in addition to an “urban silver” color version that you’ll probably be able to find at other carriers - like AT&T.
The G Flex 2 is smaller than the original G Flex, as it sports a 5.5-inch display with 1080 x 1920 pixels, instead of the 6-inch 720p panel of the first model. The new device is, of course, flexible to some degree, while its rear shell features an improved self-healing cover. Also notable is the fact that the G Flex 2 is powered by a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, seemingly being the first global smartphone to use this speedy chipset. Other features include a 13 MP rear camera with laser autofocus, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB / 32 GB of expandable internal memory, and a 3,000 mAh battery.
