Not too long ago LG unveiled the G Flex 2 at this year's CES tech show, and now the tech giant today announced that the much hyped smartphone is going to launch in its native market on January 30. The device will be made available in South Korea at 800,000 South Korean Won (Rs. 45,330).
This would make South Korea - LG's homeland to be among the first wave of markets, where the company plans to retail the premium curved screen handset. Last week the G Flex 2 went on pre-order in Germany.
For LG, the G Flex 2 is its breakthrough device of 2015. The G Flex 2 could easily by the most talking Android smartphone of this year. Instead of launching the G Flex 2 in other parts of the world, LG needs to focus on India - the world's fastest growing handset market.
It would be better if we get to see the device landing in India before Samsung reveals the Galaxy S6 at the annual Mobile World Congress (MWC) in March this year. Secondly, LG needs to have a unique marketing strategy in place to make the G Flex 2 standout in the growing market place.
