LG has unveiled the new G Flex 2 at CES 2015. This curiously curved smartphone with its bending properties is already known for its design. (LG is calling it the company’s bendiest phone, yet.)

But, the company claims the phone’s main selling point is its durability. Specifically, LG is insisting its new device, in addition to its other improved features, has a tougher skin and tougher display than previous models.

Like it’s predecessor, the G Flex 2, has a scratch resistant, “self-healing” back. However LG boasts this new model has taken the previous healing time from a matter of minutes to just 10 seconds. The screen has also been toughened up, the company claims. LG says the new glass screen is up to 20 percent stronger.

And the enhanced 5.5 inch display has other upgrades as well. It is now fully HD with a 1080p resolution. Other upgrades include Android 5.0 OS, a Laser Auto Focus camera, and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chip.

So far there has been no price or release date announced.

  1. For me I’d rather double my batter life and have a more rigid phone than worry about it’s ability to recover or heal from being deformed.

  2. Don’t know about the ‘bendy’ phone but it does not really appeal to me due to casing and storage issues. It’s nice for a design but it seems like it will break.

  3. The phone is actually quite durable and bendable. There are videos on YouTube of people throwing it against walls, stepping on it, and bending it. Here is a link of one such video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GnCemTz6aW4
