LG has revealed the successor to the G Flex today at the CES 2015, which was teased by Qualcomm last week and then leaked before the event started. The LG G Flex 2 sports a 5.7-inch P-OLED curved display with 1080p resolution, a 64-bit 2GHz octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor, a 13-megapixel primary camera with OIS and laser autofocus, and a 3,000 mAh battery. The device also has a curved and bendable body with a self-healing back, just like its predecessor, but this time, it heals even faster.

LG has improved the screen resolution when compared to its predecessor and the ‘Glance View’ feature displays key information such as time, recent messages, missed calls and more with a downward swipe on the screen even while the display is off. The camera has received the laser autofocus and OIS from the LG G3, making it a much battery camera than the G Flex. The device comes with support for microSD cards with storage capacity of up to 2TB. It supports 4G LTE-A with theoretical download speeds of up to 450Mbps.

The device comes in two colours: platinum silver and flamenco red. There’s no word on the pricing yet, but we think that it might be priced over Rs. 50,000 ($800) when it becomes available in India.
