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?

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.

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!

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.

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.

47. g2a5b0e unregistered

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.

Seriously? That's what you came up with? LG didn't say that. It's a rumor just like anything else. We'll have to just wait & see.

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

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).
