LG G Flex 2 phone flexes GPU muscle at CES 2015

LG unveiled its G Flex 2 smartphone at CES 2015. Shacknews looks into what makes it a competitive phone, as well as a competent Android gaming machine.


Curved screens appear to be the big trend in technology and LG looks to be leading the way with their OLED TVs. The electronics giant is also set to bring curved screens to smartphones, as indicated by the LG G Flex 2 phone unveiled at this year's International Consumer Electronics Show.

The phone comes at a paltry 5.36 ounces and utilizes Android Lollipop, displaying a powerful 16 million colors across a curved P-OLED touchscreen. Readers of this site may be wondering how any of this applies to gaming. The answer comes with the Adreno 430 GPU and Quad-core Cortex-A57 CPU processor, which powers some of the best Android games like the recent Hitman mobile releases and Rayman autorunners. Whether Android games themselves can keep up with these specs remains to be seen, but the hardware definitely appears to stack up with the more powerful phones that are available today.
