Normally, LG lifts the lid on a new G Flex smartphone at CES, which kicks off every January (LG G Flex introduced in 2014 and LG G Flex 2 unveiled in 2015). A recent report, however, claimed that LG has no plans of introducing the LG G Flex 3 at CES 2016 in Las Vegas this year. It is yet to be determined if the G Flex line has been discontinued or if LG has decided to introduce the G Flex 3 in a different venue or on a different date. So does this mean that the Korean phone maker has given up on curved smartphones? According to a new report, LG has not given up on a curved smartphone. This time, however, it is working on something new.
LG working on a curved smartphone
The new rumour comes to us courtesy of leak master Evan Blass, aka @evleaks. According to Blass, LG is cooking up a smartphone with a curved screen that “wraps over the top of the device.” This would mean that the device will have a screen that resembles the screen featured by the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge. The only difference is that the edged screen will not be found on one side of the device, but on the top instead. Blass says that the screen “wraps over the top of the device,” which could mean that the screen could go all the way from the front to the back of the smartphone. This, however, is just speculation. So don’t take our word for it.
The question is, is this rumour fictional, or is it accurate? Sadly, we can’t say for sure, but, given Blass’ reputation for almost always being right on the button, there’s a huge chance we’ll soon see an LG-made device that matches his description sooner than later.
