LG G Flex curved display smartphone's bendable successor in the works

It appears that LG is already working on a successor to the G Flex curved display smartphone, one that sports better bendable features.
A new report by ZDnet claims that the South Korean manufacturer is working on the LG G Flex's successor. The report reveals that the alleged G Flex successor, thought to be dubbed G Flex 2, would come with special hard rubber body allowing it to bend up to a 90 degree angle.

Further, the report notes that the alleged G Flex 2 would include a flexible battery inside, although there is no word on the removable battery. The report also speculates that LG might launch the second smartphone in its G Flex series in Q2 2014. As of now, there is no word on the specifications of the rumoured G Flex 2 smartphone.

LG unveiled the much-anticipated G Flex smartphone in October this year. LG announced the pricing of the G Flex for the Korean market shortly after, which translated to roughly Rs. 59,000.

The Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean-based phablet is powered by a quad-core 2.26GHz Snapdragon 800 (MSM8974) processor, an Adreno 330 GPU, and 2GB of RAM. It features a 13-megapixel rear camera, and a 2.1-megapixel rear camera. The G Flex is backed by a 3,500mAh battery, weighs 177 grams, and is 7.9mm at its thinnest, while being 8.7mm at its thickest. As for the 6-inch curved display, it comes with Plastic OLED display (P-OLED), which is supposedly ultra-light, ultra-thin and flexible.

Recently, LG G Flex's self-healing ability was tested and filmed, and it was also found that the device's rear panel restored faster in warm temperature.
