CES 2015 is about to begin, and of all the companies hawking their future wares, it seems like LG is the one most likely to try to make a big splash. So big, in fact, that the company isn’t bothering to hide what’s coming, splaying the main hallway outside the show floor with posters for the G Flex 2. Unfortunately, we don’t know much about the phone from the poster beyond that it’s going to exist, be curved, and use a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. None of those things are exactly surprises, but it’s been some time since we’ve seen a flagship announced at CES.
Presumably it will be as flexible as the last one, a feature that seemed silly at the time but maybe could gain some purchase among consumers in 2015. Basically, if your phone is designed to bend, it becomes quite a bit less stressful when it does bend.
