LG G Flex CES 2014-1

While most of the tech world is focused on LG’s latest flagship, the LG G3, it seems that the Korean based manufacturer has plenty more in store for us in the months to come. Speaking to the Korean media at their South Korean G3 event in Seoul, LG reportedly revealed that the LG Vu 4 and G Flex 2 will arrive in the second half of the year.

So what do we actually know about the two handsets? Not a whole lot. For the Vu 4 we wouldn’t be surprised if the handset never makes its way out of Korea due to extremely limited global interest in the Vu series’ 4:3 aspect ratio. While LG did market earlier versions of the stylus-equipped Vu series internationally under names like the Verizon LG Intuition, the handset never found much success.

As for the LG G Flex 2? We’d be lying if we said the G Flex was extremely well received, but flexible display-equipped handsets are still very much in their infancy and we imagine LG will once again release the device to the global stage. What we don’t know is what new features the Flex 2 might bring, though earlier rumors suggesting the device would have a feature “more unique than a self-healing back”. This has also led to speculation that the G Flex 2 could be one of the first Android Silver devices.

What do you think of these two decisively niche devices, glad to see LG keeping both series alive? What new features would you like to see from LG’s next crop of devices?
