LG G Flex 2 is finally going to be shipped outside South Korea with Singapore set to become the first country to get it. Pre-orders for the device will start on 27 February before hitting the stores next month.
The device was announced at the Consumer Electronics Show 2015 (CES 2015) and was released to the market in South Korea on 30 January. It is the successor of LG G Flex, which was released last year.
The LG G Flex 2 will hit the stores in Singapore in 14 March, a couple of weeks after its pre-orders begin, and will come with a price tag of S$998 (approximately $800) without contract, according to a report by CNet.
The report went on to say that it is still not known when the device will be launched in the US and the UK but added that carriers like AT&T, Sprint and US Cellular will bring it to the states, while Vodafone will sell it for six weeks in the UK after the launch.
