Earlier this week, LG put to bed all the rumours about its upcoming handset, the LG G3 flagship, at a launch event that finally settled all the predictions we've been seeing for months.
However, while it managed to finally halt all of the debates on one handset, the company set tongues wagging for a potential newer device at a potentially higher point in its range, as it let slip minor details about the LG G Flex 2.
The original LG G Flex launched in February of this year, and although it was a controversial and opinion-splitting release, it heralded the potential future of the smartphone world with its curved screen and flexible bending chassis.
More will be expected from its new relative, though, and we'll now be expecting to see the LG G Flex 2 lead the revolution towards the sort of bending handsets that have been predicted for many years.
Although it let little slip on the future of the device at the LG G3 launch in South Korea, the company did at least confirm its existence, and said that it will be launched later this year – so expect to be able to get your hands on the device at some point in 2014.
In addition to this, LG also said it will be rolling out its new tablet later in this year as well, with the LG Vu 4 expected to challenge the likes of Samsung for control of the tablet market when it hits shelves.
Other than a rather wide potential release date, there was nothing to suggest any specs or design for the LG G Flex 2 at the launch, but other leaks have already claimed that it will command a high spot on the price range.
Evleaks, which has often been on the money with its Twitter-based predictions, said that it expects the device to come in at the prime end of the market, will be one of the first Android Silver devices and will have even more unique features than the bendy plastic of its predecessor.
