It’s 2015 and most flagships will be powered by Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 810 processor. If you can’t wait for the Mi Note Pro or newer devices that would be announced at MWC 2015, the LG G Flex 2 is finally here in Malaysia.
Announced at CES 2015, this is the first smart phone to run Qualcomm’s new top of the line processor. While LG Malaysia is still contemplating of bringing this in, retailer DirectD has brought the latest flagship into Malaysia. The grey imported G Flex 2 is going for RM2,999, which is the same price as the Galaxy Note Edge.
The unit that DirectD has brought in is the 2GB RAM version (likely the Korean version) and it comes with 32GB of on-board storage. The rest of the spec sheet includes a curved 5.5″ Full HD OLED display and it runs on an Octa-Core Snapdragon 810 processor.
There’s also a 13MP main camera with Optical Image Stabilisation and Laser Auto Focus. For selfies, it gets a 2.1MP front camera. The back cover also comes with a wolverine-like self healing feature which claims to be cure itself from minor scratches in just a matter of seconds. Keeping the lights on is a 3,000mAh capacity battery, which is smaller than the original G Flex (3,500mAh) but it gets a quick charge feature that does 0-50% in 40 minutes.
The LG G Flex 2 from DirectD also comes with their own 2 year in-house warranty and is available in both Grey and Red colours. Interested? Head over to DirectD’s LG G Flex 2 page.
