The LG G Flex was launched back in October 2013 which makes it over a year old. This is a perfect age for a smartphone to have a successor, don’t you think? In mid-September we reported that LG was possibly working on a follow-up to the G Flex and it seems that we were right. According to the latest rumors, the LG G Flex 2 will go official in January 2015 at CES 2015 and it should be even more flexible than the first G Flex.
LG G Flex 2 will be even more flexible than the original LG G Flex
That would be interesting to see. Manufacturers have been talking about their plans to release bendable phones for a long time; however, no truly flexible device managed to materialize so far. The original LG G Flex can bend to a certain degree, but it has its limitations and you can forget about rolling the phone up. Will you be able to do that with the Flex 2? Probably not, but a rumor hit the mill suggesting that the phone will be able to bend up to 90 degrees thanks to a special hard rubber chassis and flexible components inside including bendable battery.
Sources familiar with the matter claim that the G Flex 2 will be smaller than it’s predecessor but will offer a higher resolution. Earlier reports mentioned “better than Full HD” resolution, but now it appears that the phone will in fact come with 1080p screen. Actually, a Full HD display is not a bad choice, especially when paired with smaller display – pixel density will work out to higher ppi index than the G Flex. The G Flex 2 may also feature an improved version of the self-healing back solution LG used in the G Flex.
Unfortunately, we have no information regarding the handset’s other specs such as the processor, RAM, internal storage or camera. However, the phone is expected to be announced at Consumer Electronic Show CES 2015 which is just a month away, so we don’t have to wait long to satisfy our curiosity. It the claims turn out true, the G Flex 2 may be the first smartphone to meet the definition of a flexible device.
