Sprint subscribers who are eagerly awaiting the launch LG G Flex 2 smartphone will be able to purchase the device from the carrier starting on March 13th of this year. Those who want to order in advance will not have long to wait -- pre-orders for the handset will begin on February 20th.
Sprint will be making the LG G Flex 2 available in two choices of colors -- platinum silver or volcano red. Any of these editions will cost buyers $504 (off-contract), which they can choose to stretch over 24 regular payments of $21 every month for a period of two years.
The G Flex 2 smartphone was first introduced by LG earlier this year in January, during the Consumer Electronics Show 2015 (CES 2015) held in Las Vegas, Nevada in the United States. The device is a successor to the G Flex smartphone, a 6-inch handset that features a distinctive curved body design, as well as a self-healing coating that cleans up scratches and other minor damages sustained by the phone's casing.
While the G Flex 2 possesses some of the same qualities as its predecessor, it is definitely a more improved and streamlined version. Although its 5.5-inch display screen is smaller than the previous version, many consider that a more handy attribute.
The display screen of the LG G Flex 2 features a plastic OLED display technology developed by LG itself. Some may notice that this is the same technology used the LG G Watch R wearable device. For the G Flex 2, the resolution is decidedly set higher at 1,080 pixels.
For its camera, the G Flex 2 smartphone has a 13-megapixel camera that features laser autofocus system and optical image stabilization (both also found on the LG G3).
Perhaps the most distinguishing feature of the G Flex 2 is its curved design. Its front side has a 700 millimeter curved radius, while the reverse side has a 650 millimeter curved radius. As stated by LG, this design makes it easier for users to hold the phone in their hands, at the same time, allowing the handset to fit more snugly in the pockets of users.
The G Flex 2 also has the distinction of being one of the first smartphones to feature the Snapdragon 810 processor, Qualcomm's latest and some say, most powerful chip set yet. There is ample reason to believe so. After all, the Snapdragon 810 processor is an octa-core 2.0 GigaHertz chip set that is 64-bit compatible. Furthermore, it is designed to for optimum use with Android 5.0 Lollipop, the latest version of the Android mobile operating system. On top of all that, the Snapdragon 810 processor works with 2 gigabytes of memory, and supports 3 by 20 MegaHertz LTE carrier aggregation for all networks that support it.
