LG finally made the G Flex 2 this morning, hours after the official press release, images of the devices, and specs had already leaked. In other words, there isn’t much of a mystery here.
It does indeed sport a 5.5-inch curved FHD P-OLED display, Snapdragon 810 processor (64-bit), 2GB RAM, 13MP camera with Laser Auto Focus and OIS+, self-healing back, and Android 5.0 “Lollipop.” (more…)
NVIDIA may have kicked things off last night at CES with their mostly-auto-related announcements, but today is officially press day. And since it is press day, that means LG is jumpstarting the festivities with their long-held 8AM Pacific (11AM Eastern) slot. (more…)
We were already expecting to see the G Flex 2 on stage during LG’s CES press event this morning at 8AM, but we weren’t exactly expecting to see the press release and set of specs sneak out so early. Thanks to tbreak.ae, the surprises are all out in the public for you to start drooling over. This phone sounds like it might be a winner. (more…)
The sequel to LG’s G Flex is rumored to be announced at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) next week. Dubbed the G Flex 2, a report out of Korea claims that this phone will be the world’s first to run Qualcomm’s new 64-bit Snapdragon 810 processor and support Tri-Band LTE-A Carrier Aggregation. If all that sounds familiar, that is because a new variant of the Galaxy Note 4 that was announced for Korea is being upgraded with the same 810 chipset, though this report seems to suggest that Samsung may be using a custom 810 that is only 32-bit. The translation game is tough. (more…)
According to a recent report, LG may look to bring the G Flex back from the dead at CES this upcoming January. Named the G Flex 2, LG is reported to make this device a big upgrade over the first curved rendition, but will still sport the non-scratch backside which made the original G Flex so desirable back in 2013.

An update is headed to the G Flex from LG on Sprint’s network, bringing a big feature for non-fans of wireless plans with minutes. G Flex owners will be able to place Voice over WiFi (VoWiFi) calls, which is essentially just VoIP, but with a WiFi connection and not wireless data.
In addition, the update includes a new HD Voice icon, a Google SMS and Security patch, plus an “Update email Signature” feature. No exact clue to what that means, but it’s probably for the pre-installed email client.
Take a peek at the changelog from Sprint below. (more…)
If you thought that T-Mobile was done making moves after its event last night, you would be wrong. T-Mobile is looking to continue to impress people with the roll-out of their VoLTE service to more markets around the country, assuming those people have devices that are ready to take advantage of it. Starting today, updates are coming to devices like the G Flex, Note 3, and Galaxy S5 with support for all of the new markets. (more…)
Owners of the G Flex on T-Mobile should begin to see an OTA hitting their devices this week, one which is quite substantial. The update will bring your flexed device up to Android 4.4.2, the newest version available for the Android OS. (more…)
