A tweet scattered by evleaks, reveals that the successor to the LG G Flex is expected to be released by Q1 2015. Tipster said on Twitter, “LG G Flex 2 is possibly coming with a feature even more unique than self-healing plastic.”

The original LG G Flex had a 6-inch screen and chances are that its follow-up will keep the same display size. . The rumored release date suggests that it could also be one of the first devices in the Android Silver program,a new initiative to replace the Nexus range. It might be one of the first smartphones to feature a Qualcomm MSM8994 SoC. That’s the octo-core big LITTLE Snapdragon 810 chip, which is also expected to appear early next year.

Last year reports already claimed that LG was going to make the LG G Flex 2 bendable at a 90 degree angle, somewhat akin to a clamshell handset.The LG G Flex wasn’t a very popular product among the lovers of the big-screen smartphones and, probably,one of the reasons was the resolution of its 6-inch screen. The original G Flex had 720 resolution, but LG already promised to bring better and higher-resolution flexible display panels later this year.

We will have to wait and see if these rumors come to fruition. The LG G Flex 2 is a device worth keeping tabs on.
