Is LG already working on an LG G Flex sequel?
October was in its waning days when the LG G Flex was unveiled. Coming on the heels of the introduction of the Samsung Galaxy Round, LG's model curves in from the top and bottom as opposed to the Samsung device which curves in from the sides. The LG G Flex has already been released overseas and is expected to be heading to U.S. carriers Sprint, T-Mobile and AT&T.

Despite the recent release of the LG G Flex, there is speculation that the Korean OEM is working on the sequel to its curvaceous model. According to a published report out of Korea, LG and its display arm are already hard at work to produce the next generation of flexible panels. The report says that LG is in the planning stage just before it starts rolling the new glass off the assembly line. Those in the know say that the sequel to the LG G Flex will be able to bend at a 90 degree angle and will have a hard rubber body with a flexible battery inside.

According to the industry sources cited by the report, the phone will see the light of day sometime in the second half of 2014. More precisely, we should see the sequel to the LG G Flex about a year after the original was launched, which means next November. As with any report of this nature, take this with a grain of salt.

Thanks, Anonymous Tipster!

Isn't that expectable? The same way you start working on a new version of a software before the previous version launches you always start developing hardware before releasing the previous one. Why even question this?

It's pretty much where the market is heading, wearable watch becomes foldable smartphone come tablet with self regenerative abilities, oh....and Google Glass. The Nokia Morph vision from Nokia is the true inspiration for this.
