With LG’s first curved display-sporting smartphone now a year old, and sales numbers nowhere near as disappointing as some predicted, it’s only logical to expect a G Flex sequel of sorts to break cover sometime soon.
We figured LG was holding off to develop a noteworthy upgrade, not just a rehash with slightly better hardware, according to an Israeli reporter/insider, who claims to have entered in contact with an unreleased G Flex.
A G Flex Mini, weirdly enough, whose existence was never denied by LG, sounds intriguing. A diminutive “banana phone” with perhaps a palatable price point, but in total absence of specifics, it’s probably better to not speculate on things like retail costs.
Regarding the dimensions, LG has a twisted definition of mini-smartphones, fitting a fairly large 4.7-inch display on the G2 mini, and a downright massive 5-inch panel on the G3 S, aka G3 Beat or Vigor. And yes, we realize the latter isn’t branded as a “mini”, but it sure feels like one.
