The 6” LG G Flex contributed to the Phablet concept, but the dismal screen display has us talking about the upcoming second release. It’s looking more and more that the LG G Flex 2 will still be Phablet sized, but will resort to a smaller screen size to increase the visual display. While the original Flex is still one of the most creative smartphones, what it lacked in visual quality ultimately held it back from being 2014’s best Android smartphone.
The new LG G Flex 2 looks to be slightly smaller than the original, but will have a much better screen display. Persistent rumors will be decreasing the screen size from 6 inches to either 5.7 or 5.8 inches to help make the display a full-HD.
LG G Flex 2 Specs
Based on what we have been hearing, the smaller size will make it possible for the LG G Flex 2 screen have a resolution of 1080 x 1920. This will be significantly better than the 720p display of the original Flex, and an improvement that we need to see.
Other rumors on the LG G Flex 2 specs is an Ultra HD 13 MP primary camera and a 3-4 MP secondary camera. It will be interesting to see if the second Flex wil have the optical image stabilization feature as it has become the hallmark of premium Android smartphones.
The Snapdragon Qualcomm quad-core 2.5 ghz processor is the most likely, despite rumors on an Qualcomm octa-processor in the works. With the LG G Flex 2 release date just months away, we’ll probably have to wait until the LG G Flex 3 release in 2016 to see the new octa-core technology.
Three color options including silver, black, and white with more to come months after the February release. Internal memory of 32 and 64 GB is likely, but we’re hearing that a micro SD card slot is not.
Stay tuned for more info on the LG G Flex 2 specs including the confirmations out of the CES event in January 2015.
