LAS VEGAS: LG revealed its second curved smartphone at CES this week, the G Flex 2.
Like its predecessor the G Flex, which was announced in October 2013, the LG G Flex 2 lacks physical buttons on the front or side, relegating the home and volume buttons to just below the rear-facing camera but also brings some new features in a smaller form factor.
The G Flex 2's curved display means the phone sits more comfortably than most when held in the palm of the hand and up against the curved contour of the face.
LG claims that the shape is "optimised for the average face", offering better voice quality as the microphone is closer to the mouth when making calls.
We managed to spend a short time with the phone at the firm's (very dark) booth at CES ahead of its release.
