It hasn’t been long since LG unveiled its new smartphone with a flexible display, aptly called the LG G Flex. The device is yet to make its way Stateside. In fact, LG is yet to launch it globally. The company has confirmed though it plans to launch it on a large scale, unlike the similar smartphone from Samsung, called Galaxy Round, which is only available in limited quantities in South Korea. As people around the world wait to get their flex on, LG might already be working on the next generation G Flex smartphone.
Rumors coming in from South Korea suggest that LG Electronics and LG Display are currently working on a new generation of flexible displays that can be used in smartphones. The company is said to be in planning stages for mass production of these panels. It is said that these display panels will be flexible enough to flex at 90 degrees and to support that the next generation G Flex will have a body made from a special hard rubber compound. It can be presumed that this smartphone might also have a flexible battery. Industry sources cited in the report claim that LG G Flex successor is going to be released in the second half of 2014, which means that there’s still a lot of time before this device will officially be unveiled, going by this timeframe that is.
