The newly unveiled bendy handset from LG will be making its way to the UK as a Vodafone exclusive, starting March 19th, according to reports.
The LG G Flex 2 was spotted on Carphone Warehouse's website which confirmed the March release date. The "bendable" smartphone will be a Vodafone exclusive for its first six weeks on the market. The device can be pre-ordered from the Carphone website starting February 28th but users can register their interest now. The G Flex 2 comes in 16 GB and 32 GB in-built storage options which are expandable to a whopping 2 TB and runs Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box. The LG smartphone features a 5.5 inch curved P-OLED display with a full HD 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution at 403 ppi as well as a 13 megapixel rear camera, a 2.1 megapixel front-facing camera, a 3,000mAh "embedded" battery cell with fast charging capability, and the Flex's signature "self-healing" back panel material.
The LG G Flex 2 also features the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 64 bit octa-core processor which has endured some controversy as of late. Earlier this month, reports revealed that Samsung had decided to pass on the Snapdragon 810 for the Galaxy S6 due to overheating issues. LG, meanwhile, said that it had not had any issues with the alleged processor problems. At an LG earnings conference in South Korea, the company changed its tune, revealing that it too had faced some issues with the Snapdragon 810 chip, at least the "initial batch." LG and Qualcomm have since dealt with the issues and will launch the LG G Flex 2 and upcoming LG G4 with the processor on schedule. Pricing on the LG G Flex 2 has not been revealed at this time.
