U.S. CELLULAR LAUNCHING LG G FLEX 2 ON MARCH 26
CHICAGO and ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J. (March 23, 2015) – U.S. Cellular (NYSE: USM) and LG Electronics have announced that the LG G Flex 2™ will be available, in the Platinum Silver color, in stores and online on March 26. The G Flex 2’s innovative curved design made it the standout smartphone at this year’s International Consumer Electronics Show, and qualified customers will be able to get it for $0 down using U.S. Cellular’s installment pricing.
“At U.S. Cellular, we strive to provide the best wireless experience by providing the latest devices, a high quality network and national coverage that keeps customers connected in cities and rural communities,” said Joe Settimi, vice president of marketing for U.S. Cellular. “LG has created a unique device that is packed with cutting-edge features, and we are thrilled to bring our first curved smartphone to our customers.”
The G Flex 2 builds on the innovation introduced on the original G Flex with a more advanced, curved design for better ergonomics, a slimmed down 5.5 Full HD display, and Advanced Self-Healing back. It boasts faster performance and greater convenience with new features like GlanceView, which displays key information such as time, recent messages or missed calls with a downward swipe on the curved screen even while the display is off.

- 5.5" Curved Full HD P-OLED Display
- 13 MP OIS+ Laser Auto Focus Rear Camera and 4K Ultra HD Camcorder
