LG G Flex 2 expected be announced at CES 2015

Back in May, we told you that LG was planning to release a sequel to its G Flex smartphone before the end of 2014. However, we’re now hearing that the new handset won’t be introduced this year.

According to Android Authority and unnamed sources, LG will officially announce the second generation G Flex - most probably called G Flex 2 - at CES 2015 in early January. Just like the original G Flex (pictured above), the new model should be curved and flexible, sporting a P-OLED display. However, it’s said that its screen will be smaller than the one featured by the current G Flex, while also offering a higher pixel resolution. As you may know, the original G Flex offers a 6-inch screen with 720 x 1280 pixels - not exactly the best resolution for such a large display.

Another feature that the LG G Flex 2 should keep is the self-healing back cover. There are no other details about the handset at the moment, but we can probably safely assume that it’s going to run Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box.

Last month, we heard that the G Flex 2 would be launched by Sprint in the US. Since the original model was released not just via Sprint, but also via AT&T and T-Mobile, we expect the new one to also be widely available in the US. Are you waiting for the G Flex 2?

If it comes out before the end of the year I'll consider it. Either way, The only bad thing about the original was the low-res display, but since they're fixing that, the new G-Flex will be pretty awesome.

It says in title that this device is expected to be announced at CES. CES is in January. What makes you possibly think it might come out this year?

Then that makes your first statement completely pointless. Plus, you said it in the future tense as if it is a possibility.

I'm assuming he meant the end of next year. The story clearly says the end of January. Aside from that I think most of is already know when CES is anyway.

I don't think that's what he meant at all. Devices shown at CES come out in the first half of the year. The original G Flex came out in January. It seems to me that he just commented without reading like so many do.

I loved my G3, but it just seemed like they were trying to hard. And the bootloader locked down on almost all variants was just nuts. Now I know that partly had to do with the carrier but if I remember correctly even the international model had an unlockable bootloader.

I had the T Mobile version of the G3 and it was unlocked, bootloader and network...but, I moved on to the Nexus 6...

Yeah that was pretty much the only one that was unlocked, and I also have moved on to the Nexus 6. Love it!!!

Hopefully this will be their FLAGSHIP phone. CURVE SCREENS are the future!

Not sure if that's a jab at apple, but you're kinda right. As with NFC, ApplePay has been a huge boost for it. Regardless to who gives the boost though, it's cool seeing new tech come out.

I'd rather not have Apple make the masses to many law suits already.

You matter to Apple about as much as I do, even less actually, at least I buy their stuff.

How can they improve the overall experience (beside obvious resolution and SoC boost)? The curved screen was a short lived novelty on the G Flex :/

G Flex is awesome, only reason I sold mine was due to size. Smaller screen and smaller bezels and this will be perfect.

I'm saying curving the screen was mostly a gimmick. Marginally lower screen reflectance was the only advantage the curve brought. It even failed Android Authority's drop test aesthetically (yes, it cracked. In similar fashion to the notoriously fragile G2).

Apple may sue LG for this as their iPhone 6+ has a bending feature...

I doubt the battery will be that big, however everything else sounds more or less right. Although, I also would not be surprised if it came with an FHD screen.

Cool story, bro, but when someone writes the word, source with a question mark, you're supposed source it. That means show me a link. If you can't, I will not just take your word for it.

Galaxy round display was way better
G Flex had screen ghosting problem and bad quality
LG's oled display skill has to be improved

I was talking about lg oled, not ips
I think you are saying that amoled has oversaturated color, but galaxy note 4 has best color accuracy for now.

720p screen isn't that bad. The one on my Mate2 is clear as a bell. Of course, my mid 50's aged eyesight isn't the best, but couple that 720p screen, with the snap400 processor & that huge battery, it works!

FHD to me are enough as a comfortable maximum and I think Flex 2's edges should be more rounded off iPhone style so it can go in and out of pocket or bag compartment easily. Hope that LG can do something about that.

But above all unique design and specs aside, LG should really do better on the code side of things and be more dev + user friendly. Also improve on getting timelier.
