Rumours of an LG G Flex 2 handsets have emerged, with the second-generation bendable phone said to feature a screen capable of curving up to 90-degrees.
With the original LG G Flex having been launched in Korea in recent months ahead of a European rollout in the New Year, the bendable phone plays host to a display that can flex a few degrees when put under pressure, a feature that stops it from breaking.
Now, however, a second-gen Flex is reportedly in the works, with the LG G Flex to set to be capable of bending to a right angle if required.
With foldable screen phones widely expected to mark the future, the mooted LG G Flex 2 will seemingly act as a middle ground between current bendable options and truly foldable handsets.
“LG Electronics and LG Display are developing a ‘bendable’ smart phone, planning a next year release. It will allow the user to bend up to 90 degrees with force,” claimed sources out of LG’s native Korea told local news outlet ZDNet Korea.
The original LG G Flex boasts a 6-inch 720p HD display which has a banana bend from top to bottom made possible by the screen’s plastic substrate.
Powered by a 2.26GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, the phone is further bolstered by 2GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel rear-mounted camera and a 3500mAh battery. The handset lines up at 177g in weight and from 7.9mm thick at its tip to 8.7mm in the middle thanks to the curve.
