LG wows CES 2015 with new curved phone

LG wows CES 2015 with new curved phone
User Rating

In a sea of sameness of flat designs in today’s mobile devices, South Korean tech company LG returns to flex its creative muscles once again, catching the attention of the attendees of this year’s International CES (Consumer Electronics Show) in Las Vegas, Nevada.

In the spotlight is LG G Flex 2, the company’s follow up to its first curved phone, the LG G Flex. Curved design aside, the G Flex 2 might appear to be a downsized version of its predecessor, with the display shrinking from 6 inches to just 5.5. The smaller size, however, could make it more comfortable to handle while also upping the resolution to 1080p. The phone features an improved scratch self-healing back cover and a quick charge technology that can juice up the device in a jiffy.

But what’s under the hood is what started all the buzzing: a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor. With the introduction of the Snapdragon 810 in the G Flex 2, the dream of a 64-bit Android device is finally a reality.

On the software side of things, the G Flex 2 is similar with LG’s other flagship, the G3, but with a few new quirks that improve the Knock On experience that many love such as Glance View, which displays key information, including time and recent messages or missed calls, with a downward swipe on the curved screen even when the screen is off. Gesture Shot, a camera feature activated with a hand gesture as far as 1.5 meters away, could also make taking selfies easier.

The LG G Flex 2 will ship out first in South Korea this month, followed by an international release shortly after.
