LG will be releasing their highly anticipated G Flex 2 device, which will be the successor to the original G Flex - which received mixed reviews.
LG will be bringing on its latest G Flex device next month, as the company announced the official release date of the new device. Sprint has announced that they would be the first service provider to bring the LG G Flex 2 to their lineup on March 13th. Preorders for the device have already begun, and it is likely that users can expect to see good performance out of this device.
The LG G Flex 2 will feature some impressive features, especially when it comes to the display of the device. It will feature a 5.5-inch screen that will bring a 13MP rear-facing camera, as well as a 2.1MP front-facing camera. Naturally, the device will be bringing a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, as well as 3GB of RAM. The battery is massive, sizing up at 3,000mAh, which should give the device plenty of juice for long days at the office or just a casual jog at the end of the day.
The price of the device has been somewhat confusing in terms of what it all means. On one hand, the device has the price of $504 off-contract. Which is very odd because usually devices of this caliber are both more expensive, and usually priced with the $99 ending. On the other hand, Sprints Easy Pay plan will put the cost of the handset at just $21 a month, with a 24-month agreement.
All of that being said though, this is an important launch for LG. While this isn’t their flagship model, this one is important because it beat out some of the major devices in terms of release and launch – with Samsung and HTC launching major device in the very beginning of March. Since the company holds off on releasing the new G-series phone, which is their flagship device – it won’t be a surprise to see the company really step up their focus on getting a good device out after the others have launched.
Right now, it’s unclear if Verizon will be carrying the device, but it’s been made clear that AT&T as well as T-Mobile will be carrying the G Flex 2 eventually. While exact timeframes haven’t been noted yet, it’s worth pointing out that there is a very good chance that this could be the biggest secondary launch of the entire year – as far as non-flagship devices are concerned.
