LG G Flex 2 spotted in promotional poster at CES 2015

lg g flex 2 ces poster The Verge

It’s unofficially official! After almost an entire year of speculation, it now appears that LG’s marvelous Musa has sprouted a successor to the G Flex. A few weeks back we reported on a probable launch, but now, thanks to an image obtained by The Verge, we have the following to feast our appetites on:

At this point absolutely nothing is known about the phone’s specs, however Qualcomm itself hinted at the device featuring a Snapdragon processor. Given that LG has made a promotional point of its Plastic OLED technology, the Flex 2 will probably make use of it, although nothing is set in stone.

Taking a look at the poster, the two most immediately noticeable points are the new logo (complete with the device’s curved shape represented below the word “Flex”) and the front of the device, which seems to resemble the recently released LG L Bello and L Fino smartphones, mostly by the more squared corners.

As far as the curve itself goes, it doesn’t appear to be dramatically more pronounced than the original, however given the rumors of higher specs, perhaps the screen will be of 1080 resolution (or higher). Rumors have also suggested the device will have a smaller screen compared to the 6-inch nature of the original. The thought of a G3 (or G4?) hardware base for this futuristic flagship may go a long way to making mainstream consumers consider it. With CES kicking off in about a day, we will inevitably be learning more soon. And who knows, maybe the rumored LG Vu 4 will also make an appearance!

So, now that the device is all but confirmed and official, who [else] is going to get it? Leave your thoughts in the comments below.

  • Looks like it has a smaller screen size but let’s wait until the unveil for more information :)

  • Captain Spaulding

    I can’t wait for the unveiling. I’m hoping that this will be my next phone.

    I can’t believe the first G-Flex sold well enough for LG to consider a second iteration. Who the hell wants a curved (deliberately bent) phone?

    • David Baláž

      I would not mind actually I like the idea. As the first generation showed us it is quite more resistant to damage as a regular phone

    • Captain Spaulding

      Have you ever used a G Flex? It’s more ergonomic than flat phones. The only reason I got a G2 instead was because of the 720p resolution. Give this bad boy 1080p and I’ll be all over it.

    • Chris

      You obviously haven’t used it. That phone was amazing. EVERYTHING about it besides the crappy screen was amazing.

    • Sondrek17

      I find it to be more comfortable in my pocket, hand and against my face. Also it is cool. It is very different from the other phones out there.

  • systemupdate

    dude, these companies are so bad at keeping their products a secret!

    • Anonymousfella

      I think, sometimes its intentional. It generates free media buzz about the product!

      • Darren

        Yes I agree it hypes up the devices more and gets people excited

    • Norman Zaczyk

      They had to build up the posters for the CES and everyone will be able to see them in a few days at CES. Should they wait with building them up until the CES has started? Just because some journalists can enter the buildings early they won’t change their plans…

  • MasterMuffin

    I’ve been waiting for this for a long time. Not that I’ll buy it, but it’s cool tech :) I hope it’s still bendable (like intentionally made to do it!)

  • Dan Snickles

    Awesome I hope hope it’s a lot like the g3 I absolutely love that phone. I did have the note 3 and then the note edge but LG has a smoother experience and the quadhd display is awesome.

  • John Conatser

    lol Another phone that wont sell…

  • crutchcorn

    Well, so much for Android Silver Flex 2 (looking at the interface)

    • David Onter

      What are you talking about? -.-

      • crutchcorn

        Early rumors of Flex 2 being the first Android Silver phone (AOSP)

        • David Onter

          1. The Silver project is dead, that is known sonce a long time.
          2. What is the source of those rumors?
          3. Just because there’s also a non-stock version that wouldn’t mean that there couldn’t also be a a silver version.

          • crutchcorn

            1. There was no announcement of the Silver project being dead, though I had assumed it so anyway
            2. This site. No idea where it came from before
            3. Well aware, but the Silver project stated that the original phone was going to be near AOSP.

            What does it matter anyway? I was simply saying so much for that rumor. Rumors are oft wrong and I personally like LG’s take on Android. So…..

  • Tomas Avea

    I have the first g flex and its a amazing phone “the slight curve is actually more comfortable to hold and not to mention looks bad ass “”don’t hate on the flex i will be getting the new one too “hopefully its keeps its 6″screen

  • Marty

    By the way, The Verge is one of those communist sites that can’t stand free speech. They conduct themselves the way N. Korea does regarding the exercise of free speech – they censor you to shut you up.

  • Katherine

    Even there are some rumors about the launch of HTC Hima that are going to launch in CES 2015. Well, hope we will see some new technologies in this event that is going to take place from 7 Jan 2015. I have LG G3 and eagerly waiting for the launch of LG G
    Flex 2. I like the 5.5 inch QHD screen of LG G3 and impressed with its 3000mAh battery performance that once fully charged on high capacity based USB Wall Charger runs all day long with normal use.

    No news on the lg vu 4..hopefully in the Spain conference they would:(
