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.

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.
