Seoul: As we counting down the days to enter New Year, South Korean technological giant LG is gaining momentum to give an early surprise with its upcoming device LG G Flex 2.
According to new reports, the device will have the tendency to bend 90 degrees. The rumors also indicate LG is planning to introduce G Flex 2 which will be able to bend up to 90 degrees.
The report is published by ZDNet Korea, making it sound as if it’ll fall in between today’s curved phone and foldable technology of the future.
Curved phones currently on the international market include the LG G Flex and the Samsung Galaxy Round. Neither have made it out of Asia just yet.
The usefulness of these large, bendable phablets isn’t readily apparent, but both LG and Samsung have been known to throw prototype-like devices out on the open market with or without commercial viability.
Samsung has long experimented with flexible displays, but the next-generation LG G Flex may make the first fold. The unconfirmed LG G Flex 2 is reportedly being planned by the South Korean manufacturer for debut next year.
LG Chem, for example, invented a battery in the form of a cable that won’t heat up – even when it’s tied into a knot. However, there are no rumors attached to ZDNet Korea’s report that indicate a flexible battery like this.
So far, the LG G Flex and Samsung Galaxy Round aren’t available worldwide. So all the eyes are now on LG could company get the upper hand by introducing second generation flexible device Worldwide, or Samsung capture the flexible smartphone flag.
