    It's been over a year now since LG introduced its curved-screen G Flex Android, and while it certainly wasn't a phone for everyone, we found ourselves quite taken with it. In the months since we've been on the lookout for information about a possible second-generation effort, and while some rumors suggested the phone wouldn't launch until February 2015, others claimed that it could debut before the end of 2014. Now the latest rumor attempts to split the difference, pointing to CES in January for LG's launch announcement. We've got plenty of questions regarding what LG could be planning for ...

    LG's G Flex did what no other OEM seemed bold enough to do: make a curved smartphone - and make it flexible! If that weren't enough, the company managed to include (perhaps out of necessity) a "self-healing" feature. Minor (and even "more than minor") scratches on the back would simply fade and disappear over time. Outside of a Terminator movie, it doesn't get much cooler than tech like that! It's been almost a year since the first-generation G Flex was announced, and we've heard some rumors that a new G Flex is slated for the same time this year (or not until early next year, depending on ...

    With the iPhone 6 launched, and IFA behind us, there's not a lot in the way of high-profile smartphone events coming up for the next several months. CES looms ahead in January, and while there are a few devices between now and then we're looking forward to, this can still feel like a bit of a slow period. A year ago, though, fall became ground zero for the arrival of the curved smartphone, with both Samsung and LG announcing such plans. But where have curved screens taken us in the days since the Galaxy Round and G Flex? We've seen curved smartwatches, like the new Gear S, as well as ...

    Yesterday's debut of LG's G3 left us wondering when we might see the return of some of tech used in the manufacturer's earlier G Flex, a subject we brought up in our Editorial Roundtable yesterday afternoon – not so much the curved display, but the use of that self-healing plastic. But last we heard, at least, any G Flex 2 would still be quite a way's off, possibly not launching until 2015. As it turns out, our wait might be considerably shorter, as we learn that LG has shared its intention to launch both a new G Flex and a new Vu model sometime in the second half of the year. This news ...

    The LG G Flex is a unique phone, in many ways: it not only has a curved screen, but the coating on the back has been referred to as "self-healing", which proved to be true, up to a point, in our real-life torture test. The phone is now getting its KitKat update in South Korea, and the manufacturer is apparently working on a follow-up. According to @evleaks, you should expect the LG G Flex 2 to arrive around February 2015 (mid-Q1, to be more exact), which might be weeks ahead of the 2015 Mobile World Congress, happening 2-5 March, in Barcelona. The biggest teaser here is not the date itself ...

    We at Pocketnow have a lot to be thankful for this week. We're busier than ever, our YouTube channel just passed 500,000 subscribers and we're deep in the planning stages for the new year's big tech expos. But most importantly, we're all still in the business of reporting on mobile gadgets, and that's something we all feel pretty lucky about. On today's late-Friday edition of the Weekly, we'll fill you in on some of the fun stuff coming down the pipe: from our forthcoming LG G Flex review, to wooden Moto X devices hitting shelves, to the future union of Windows RT and Windows Phone. We'll ...

    We are only now seeing the first real fruits of the multi-year effort to bring flexible displays to smartphones. The first wave doesn't really bend – or at least not much – but as we saw from Samsung as it explained its goals for the future, that's very much where we're headed. Even with these models so new, we're already hearing about some follow-up rumors, like LG's work on a new version of its G Flex. This G Flex 2 may be in the pipeline for a launch in a little under a year from now, relatively in-line with the anniversary of the announcement of the first G Flex. It sounds like LG ...
