LG Has Another Crack With A New Curved G Flex Smartphone Released at CES 2015.
Called the G Flex 2 the new smartphone has a 5.5-inch touchscreen that has a 23 degree arc. LG are not saying when the device will be launched in Australia.
At their press event today in Las Vegas the Company said that the new smartphone when launched will be available in platinum silver and flamenco red.
LG executives said that the 23-degree arc, lends itself to a more immersive viewing experience, it is also pretty tough and can flex straight when you push or step on the handset with the display facing downward.
The new smartphone incorporates a symphony of curves ranging from a radius of 400mm to 700mm across the front, back, sides and top-to-bottom edges.
However, the G Flex2’s curves are for more than looks. The phone’s ergonomic design brings the microphone closer to the mouth, for enhanced sound pickup. The slimmed down 5.5 inches screen with curvatures is a stylish fit for eyes and the grip. The display’s 700mm radius curvature delivers an immersive viewing experience, while the steeper650mm radius curvature of the back is more comfortable to grip and fits easier in the pocket. The display’s resolution has also been bumped up to 1080p Full HD, which makes UI detail appear crisp and alive. The P-OLED display, which gives the G Flex2 its unique shape and durability, is even more precise than in the original G Flex.
Turning the phone over reveals handcrafted details such as the Spin Hairline Pattern on the G Flex2’s curved rear, which showcases the subtle yet brilliant polish of the surface from every angle.
LG has also improved on the slick protective coating that’s on the back of the phone, so that it can mend everyday scuffs and scratches faster.
