All but Official: LG to announce the G Flex 2 at CES this week

January 3, 2015 - Written By Alexander Maxham

We’ve been hearing rumors for a good few weeks that LG would be announcing the LG G Flex 2 at CES this week. And quite a few people are already at CES in Las Vegas, and The Verge has gotten their eyes on a LG banner that pretty much confirms the LG G Flex 2 which states “Redefining the Curve”. Last year, LG announced the LG G Flex for the US here at CES, and it looks like this is where the successor will be announced. The LG G Flex 2 is expected to run on a Snapdragon 805 or 810 (depending on whether Qualcomm has the Snapdragon 810 ready yet) as well as 3GB of RAM and at least a 1080p display. I’m saying a 1080p display because last year the LG G Flex had a 720p display, so I don’t think it’ll jump straight to QHD.

The name is also basically official as well. If you take a look at the full picture over on The Verge’s post (linked in the sources section below), you’ll see that it says the LG G Flex 2.

As far as the design of the LG G Flex 2 goes, we’re expecting it to be pretty much the same as the LG G3, so we’ll probably see a faux metal design (which is really plastic), and super thin bezels. Not to mention it flexes, which is pretty sweet. I’m especially excited to see how well the self-healing coating on the back has improved over last year. It healed scratches and such on the LG G Flex, but it wasn’t perfect, and this is something that I think could be a big selling point for LG here.

LG’s press conference is first thing Monday morning (at 8am PST), and we’ll be there to see what LG has to show us. We’re definitely excited to see what LG has to show off at CES this week. How many of you are also excited?
