Curved LG G Flex 2 to be a ‘Major Upgrade’ Over the G Flex with Improved Self-healing Coating and More
The majority of smartphones are pretty much similar in design, meaning that they are not bent, twisted, solar-powered or anything like that. But there are a few units that feature a unique aspect, such as the curved LG G Flex.
While the product features a design that is aimed at a small number of users, we already have some fresh news that point to the release of the next-generation LG G Flex 2. According to a new report from Android Authority, the LG G Flex 2 could launch in January, 2015, at CES.
While etails about the new device are scarce, it seems the G Flex 2 will be a “major upgrade” over its predecessor. It could feature a high resolution plastic-based OLED screen which could be Full HD, in a smaller form factor. The self-healing coating could make its way again, but much improved.
The G Flex was the second device to feature a plastic-based curved display after Samsung’s Galaxy Round, but LG’s G Flex features a more ‘serious’ bend from top to bottom.
Some separate rumors also suggest that the second-gen G Flex would be able to bend more dramatically, thanks to a special hard rubber chassis. At the moment, of course, all this is just rumors and hearsay, but there’s a grain of truth to it, as well.
The G Flex 2 is also said to feature a smaller screen but with a higher resolution than the G Flex, believed to be around 1080 x 1920. The smartphone is said to run the Android 5.0 Lollipop platform at launch and will enable LG to increase the memory to an impressive 4GB. It could also sports Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 805 processor.
