At CES 2015, LG introduced the successor of the G Flex smartphone called the LG G Flex 2. Notably, LG's Flex series of smartphones come with curved/concave body and display. Although, the new Flex 2 maintains the same design as the original model, LG has bettered the specifications of the successor and thereby, making it eligible to compete with its own flagship device LG G4. The LG G4, on the other hand, will reportedly come with Galaxy Note 4 like stylus in the form of "LG G Pen." Here is a comparison of reported early specifications of the G4 and the recently launched LG G Flex 2.


According to the latest reports, the LG G4 will feature a 5.3-inch True HD-IPS + LCD display, bundled with 1,440 x 2,560 pixels resolution. Meanwhile, the LG G Flex 2 comes with a relatively bigger 5.5-inch Curved P-OLED display, complemented by 1,080 x 1,920 pixels resolution. The pixel densities of the G Flex 2 and the G4 stand at 403 ppi and 554 ppi, respectively. It is worth noting that, LG has reduced the screen size of the Flex 2 by 0.2-inch, when compared to its predecessor G Flex. Moreover, the G4's screen will reportedly sport narrow bezels.

When it comes to design, LG says, the Flex 2 is equivalent to the curved 4K TVs presented at the CES 2015. The company also vouches that, the design of the phone "naturally matches the contour of your eyes." Plus, the handset comes with an improved, second-generation self-healing back panel. By scratching the back shell of the phone, the scratches reportedly disappear in 10 seconds, whereas in the case of predecessor G Flex, it takes 10 minutes to get back in shape, points out Tech Radar. Meanwhile, the design information pertaining to the LG G4 is not available at this point.

Under The Hood

Both the phones are powered by the latest 64-bit (Qualcomm Snapdragon 810) processor. While the LG G4 will reportedly be backed by a killer 4 GB of RAM, the Flex 2 settles for 2 GB and 3 GB of RAM choices based on the storage selection. On the software side, both the handsets run the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop OS.

Camera, Memory And Battery

The LG G4 will reportedly sport a killer 16 MP rear-facing camera unit and a 5 MP front-facing shooter. On the other hand, the LG G Flex 2 comes with a 13 MP primary unit and a 2.1 MP secondary unit at the front. Plus, both the handsets feature dual-LED flash and support optical image stabilisation.

With respect to the memory specification, the G4 will reportedly come housed with 32 GB and 64 GB of internal storage. Meanwhile, the Flex 2 comes with 16 GB and 32 GB storage choices, depending on the RAM configuration. To be specific, the 16 GB model of the Flex 2 houses 2 GB of RAM, whereas the 32 GB variant features 3 GB of RAM. In addition, both the handsets support microSD card for expansion up to 128 GB. Moving on to the battery configuration, the G4 will reportedly come equipped with a whopping 3,500 mAh unit, whereas the Flex 2 settles for 3,000 mAh unit.


According to report, the LG G4 will come bundled with a stylus, similar to the Galaxy Note 4's S-Pen, whereas the LG G Flex 2 doesn't. The same report also states that LG filed the trademark of the G Pen in December 2014. Reportedly, the company is working on a slew of software features to make the stylus multitask better than the Samsung's Note series of phablets, says GSM Arena.

Release Date And Price

Speaking of LG G4 release date, the device is expected to be debuted at the Mobile World Congress event (MWC 2015) in March 2015. And the price is expected to be 500 GBP, which roughly translates to $759, says PC Advisor. On the other hand, the LG G Flex 2 release date is reportedly set in the first half of 2015 and the handset will debut first in Korea. As far as the price goes, the handset will reportedly cost 599 euro in the European markets and when it comes to the U.S., the device will set the buyers back by $600, says Phone Arena.
