LG G Flex 2 self-healing rear case demoed

At CES 2015, LG lifted the lid on the LG G Flex 2, follow-up to the G Flex. Aside from sporting a flexible screen just like its predecessor, the new smartphone also sports a better self-healing rear case. Thanks to a video from PhoneArena, we can see how this works.


We all know what happens when we put our phones in our pockets or bags. Things like keys and other objects scratch up the surface, leaving unsightly scratch marks for life. With the LG G Flex 2, these objects can still scratch the surface, but the scratches will be gone in a matter of seconds, 10 seconds to be exact. This is possible, thanks to LG creating a special polymer. The poly-resin, when scratched, expands and covers up those unsightly dents and scratches.

In the video, LG scratches the rear case of the G Flex 2 with steel brushes. In a matter of seconds, the scratches can no longer be seen. The handset is the first to sport this new poly-resin case, which provides better self-healing protection compared to conventional UV-coated cases.

Does this make you want to get your hands on the LG G Flex 2? Phones LTD will let you know once the smartphone lands in the UK.
