LG’s Android Lollipop-based G Flex 2 rolling out today

LG G Flex 2

LG has announced that its G Flex 2 smartphone is rolling out to major carriers in the US, UK, France, Germany, Hong Kong and Singapore.

The device will next become available in other key markets in North and South America, Europe and Asia in the weeks following the Mobile World Congress trade show, which kicks off on March 2. We’ll probably hear about prices and availability from carriers soon too.

To recap, the 4G LTE-capable G Flex 2 features a 5.5-inch Full HD display in a curved body with a self-healing back cover. It runs Android Lollipop and packs a powerful Snapdragon 810 2 GHz 64-bit octa-core processor with 2GB RAM. For storage, there’s 32 GB of onboard memory (varies by market) along with a MicroSD slot.

The phone has a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 2.1-megapixel shooter in the front, and runs off a 3,000mAh battery. Those are some pretty impressive specs, but it’ll be interesting to see how people take to the unusual curved design.
