A phone that's actually meant to bend

CES 2015 is about to begin, and of all the companies hawking their future wares, it seems like LG is the one most likely to try to make a big splash. So big, in fact, that the company isn't bothering to hide what's coming, splaying the main hallway outside the show floor with posters for the G Flex 2. Unfortunately, we don't know much about the phone from the poster beyond that it's going to exist, be curved, and use a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. None of those things are exactly surprises, but it's been some time since we've seen a flagship announced at CES.

Presumably it will be as flexible as the last one, a feature that seemed silly at the time but maybe could gain some purchase among consumers in 2015. Basically, if your phone is designed to bend, it becomes quite a bit less stressful when it does bend.
