Curved LG G Flex 2 with Snapdragon 810 processor to be announced at CES 2015
LG is reportedly almost ready to officially unveil a successor to the G Flex (pictured above), which was introduced in late 2013 as the company’s first smartphone to sport a curved, flexible display. Not long ago, we heard that the new handset, called LG G Flex 2, would be announced at CES 2015. Now, Korean website Naver confirms this, adding a detail that we previously didn’t know: the smartphone will be powered by a 64-bit Snapdragon 810 processor, featuring LTE-A connectivity with tri-band carrier aggregation.
While the Korean website doesn’t confirm any other features, previous rumors had it that the G Flex 2 would not be as large as the original model, offering a smaller display (though with a higher pixel resolution). The first G Flex comes with a 6-inch 720p screen, so we expect the new version to have a 1080p display of around 5 or 5.5 inches.
Like the original G Flex, the G Flex 2 should feature a self-healing rear shell, and will most likely be released in the US.
CES 2015 starts next week, on January 6, and we’ll see then exactly what LG has in store for us.
