LG G Flex 2 leaks ahead of CES 2015 unveiling

With CES 2015 now just a matter of days away, latest reports have suggested the Las Vegas-based show will see the LG G Flex 2 enter the realms of reality.

With the original LG G Flex having touched down back in 2013, it appears that LG is finally set for its long awaited to return to the bendable phone game.

Although a full G Flex 2 specs sheet is still missing, the latest reports – which have surfaced courtesy of Korean website Naver – have suggested the innovative handset will pack Qualcomm’s latest 64-bit Snapdragon 810 processor.

If this wasn’t enough to whet your appetite, high speed LTE-A connectivity with tri-band carrier aggregation is also expected to feature on the flexible device.

While the original G Flex featured a 6-inch, Plastic OLED display with a 720p resolution, it has been claimed the G Flex 2 will drop to an LG G3 echoing 5.5-inch form factor and an improved 1080p, Full HD resolution.

Featuring a slightly curved body, the LG G Flex was capable of bending a few centimetres when put under pressure.

With LG having previously revealed its work with Plastic OLED panels will yield fully bendable handsets in 2015 and foldable smartphones come 2017, we expect the G Flex 2 to feature far more flex than its predecessor.

As well as a flexible display, the G Flex was famed for its scratch repairing, self healing rear, a feature expected to be carried across to the new device.

LG’s CES press conference will be held next Monday, January 5, and TrustedReviews will be on hand to bring you all the latest from the Korean manufacturer.
