LG says Flex 2, Vu 4 due later this year
For those looking for the successor of the LG G Flex and LG Vu 3, this one’s for you. LG plans on releasing the successors to these phones sometime in the second half of 2014. The company held a press event in Seoul, right after the LG G3 announcement, explaining the company’s plans to release the G Flex 2 and the Vu 4 later this year.
Though the G Flex isn’t the most popular device out there, we can’t help but get excited for what LG has in store for us. LG have already pushed the boundaries as to what smartphones are capable of, especially with new screen technology. The G Flex has completely blown Samsung’s Galaxy Round out of the water when it comes to curved smartphones, so we’ll have to see what improvements bring later this year.
For those who are unfamiliar with the Vu series, don’t beat yourselves up. The Vu 3 was mostly contained to the Korean market, so we likely won’t see a US release for the Vu 4. The Vu line has struggled to keep up with the phablets of today, mostly due to its 4:3 display ratio.
We aren’t surprised that LG is releasing a follow up to these two phones, but it never hurts to have a bit of confirmation here and there. We’ll have more news for you as more information surfaces on these devices. What do you think the G Flex 2 and Vu 4 will bring? We’d love to hear your opinions!
