LG G Flex 2 will be available in more countries but…


The super sexy LG G Flex 2 will be made available in more countries with major carriers in the United States, Hong Kong, Singapore, France, Germany and the U.K. will be among the first to offer the G Flex 2 while key markets in North and South America, Europe and Asia will announce the start of sales in the weeks following MWC.

However this announcement does’t confirm if the G Flex 2 will be available in Malaysia. And judging by the shaky position that LG Mobile is in in Malaysia, we’re not entirely sure if the device will be coming to Malaysia at all. So if you’re planning to get the LG G Flex 2, your best bet right now is to get it from Singapore or from local grey importers but get ready to pay a hefty premium if you’re going with grey importers.

The G Flex 2 features an unique 5.5-inch Full HD (1080×1920)flexible Plastic-OLED display that delivers a pixel density of 401 ppi. The display also offers enhanced durability thanks to its plastic construction and flexible properties. Under the hood, you get an octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor clocked at 2.0GHz mated with 2GB of RAM. You get an option of 16GB or 32GB of on board storage and the microSC card slot support cards up to 2TB in size! If you’re wondering, the G Flex 2 runs Android Lollipop 5.0

While the curved plastic screen of the G Flex 2 is cool, the real awesome thing about the phone is its self-healing back cover that now heals scratches faster than the original G Flex. Speaking of fast, the G Flex2 features, LG’s fast charging technology that’s able to charge the device’s 3,000mAh non-replaceable battery from zero to 50% capacity in just a little over 30 minutes.

In the camera department, you get a 13MP rear camera with OIS+ and LG’s unique Laser Auto Focus. At the front, you get a 2,1MP camera. Selfie junkies will be happy to know that the G Flex 2 offers an upgraded Gesture Shot feature that makes it easier to take selfies with just a hand gesture. LG has extended the distance from which the camera can recognize your hand to 1.5 meters, allowing you to use the feature with a selfie stick.

So what do you think? Should LG bring the G Flex 2 to Malaysia? More importantly, if they did, would you buy it?
