As IGN reported, the device seeks to improve both the form factor and performance of the original. It comes at a slightly smaller size, but offers the newer Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 series processor and a 64-bit, octo-core chip.

The first version of the phone came in at 6-inches, a large size in general and difficult to handle for a curved display. The new device is a more usable 5.5-inches, with the OLED display now 1080p instead of 720p. The more compact design (and general improvements) also add up to a more durable and flexible unit, with strength increased up to 20 percent. On the software side, the G Flex 2 will run Android Lollipop.
