LG G Flex 2 could bend up to 90 degrees
The first couple curved display devices to hit the market have been somewhat disappointing. Samsung's Galaxy Round offers curved glass with no flexibility, and nothing really interesting about it. The LG G Flex has a flexible display and slightly flexibly glass, but again nothing really interesting overall with the device. But, there is a new rumor about the G Flex 2 that gets a bit closer.

According to a new report, LG may be working on a follow-up to the G Flex that will be fully bendable, not just a bit flexible. Supposedly, the next G Flex will be able to bend a full 90 degrees. It really does sound like LG is trying to get to the point where a full touchscreen device can be a clamshell. It's baby steps right now. Unfortunately, we're not sure if bending 90 degrees will really add much. Theoretically, it could mean the glass would be less prone to break, which would be very nice, but as far as functionality from being able to bend the device that much, we'll have to see if manufacturers can show us something impressive.

Word has it that the G Flex 2 (assuming that's the name) will be released sometime in 2014. No word on exactly when, but apparently the aim is to have it on the market before Samsung releases its follow-up to the Galaxy Round.

That means I can play Tetris using various flexible mobile phones!

While I'm all for unbreakable displays, I'm not understanding curved displays. Is your tv on the wall curved? Is your laptop, or tab curved? I believe this is just another fad. Remember 3d phones?

Oh and we are back to having the big bulge in our pocket again. The device is over 12mm because of this curve in space taken up.

Visually, the curve shape looks sexy and I really like to own one. Sadly, but it has no practical pursose at all no matter how hard I think of something.

Isn't 90 degrees overkill?

Will these cases actually work for the GFLEX2 since it's not out yet?
