LG G Flex to gain 4K video capabilities with Android 4.4 update

LG has done a very interesting job with the G Flex. Even though lots of people still debate the need to even consider a flexible phone, that doesn’t change the fact that it’s been selling rather decently around the world. The company is planning to offer its Android 4.4 update for the device in the next coming weeks, and this could mean more than just a software update for you all.

We’ve already seen how XDA-Developers was able to port the G Flex to allow 4K video recording, aside from even 120fps video recording capabilities. What we didn’t expect was for LG to actually make this official, and according to a tipster close to LG, this will happen very soon. Android 4.4 will not just bring the device the latest and greatest version of Android, but according to some internal code within the update, the device will also be capable of 4K video recording.

We sadly can’t confirm if 120fps video will be included in the update, but the fact that your smartphone can record in 4K even when you didn’t buy it for this feature is rather cool. Just remember these are rumors, and LG won’t be the first company to pull back from offering a feature if things go wrong. Cross your fingers and lets see how it goes.
