LG G Flex 2 has started hitting stores across India at Rs 54999

Almost two months after being showcased in India, the LG G Flex 2 smartphone has been made available for purchase in the country. The handset carries a price of Rs 54999 and it’s a pretty great upgrade over its predecessor.

The LG G Flex 2 was originally launched during the CES 2015 expo earlier this year and surprisingly, it has a processor that’s even beefier than the one on the newly launched G4 flagship. The smartphone flaunts the same attractive design used for the first generation handset and it has improved features.

The LG phone’s P-OLED display continues to offers a curved look and it’s smaller than before at 5.5 inches. However, the resolution has been bumped up to 1080p FHD. And on the rear, a new spun texture finish has been applied with the previous self-healing properties also being retained.

Coming to the innards, the device packs 16GB of storage (no 32GB for India), a microSD card slot, 2GB RAM and a 3000mAh battery.
