Sure, we have spent a fair amount of time with the LG G Flex 2 at the recently concluded CES 2015 earlier this year to come up with a rather in-depth take on it. Well, here is the latest official word on this beautifully designed handset – it will be released on an official basis this coming January 30th over in South Korea. It is not surprising to hear that this is the very first market in where the handset appears, as the world already knew that the LG G Flex 2 would hit South Korea before January 2015 is over – just that the exact date continued to elude us.
Three of the major South Korean mobile carriers will have the LG G Flex 2 up on offer, where the handset will carry a recommended retail price of 800,000 Korean won – which can be translated to $737 after conversion, unlocked, of course. As to how this Snapdragon 810-powered smartphone will perform in terms of sales, and whether the arrival of the Samsung Galaxy S6 from its bitter rival later this year will affect its sales figures remain to be seen.
Once the LG G Flex 2 has arrived on store shelves in South Korea, do expect the rest of the world to follow – the US included, where the likes of AT&T, Sprint and US Cellular are all raring to go where the flagship smartphone is concerned. [Press Release]
