Qualcomm posted a tweet that hinted that it would release a new smartphone at CES 2015, as you can see below. The device in question could be none other than the successor to the LG G Flex.
The high-end handset will probably make its debut next week during the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. LG has been rumored to release the legitimate successor to the G Flex - a premium handset with a flexible display.
Qualcomm just went ahead and teased what it seems like the successor to LG's self-healing smartphone. Apparently, the teased image gives us a sneak peek of a handset's rear-back cover without mentioning its manufacturer. However, the buttons of the back side, alongside a "brushed metal" look, gives us a reason to build hype around the arrival of the G Flex 2.
The tweet in question reads, "A new #Snapdragon 800 powered smartphone is launching next week at @intlCES - here's a first look." In fact, it's a bit hard to imagine the G Flex 2 to come fitted with a Snapdragon 800 processor.<blockquote class="twitter-tweet blockquote" lang="en"><p>A new <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Snapdragon?src=hash">#Snapdragon</a> 800 powered smartphone is launching next week at <a href="https://twitter.com/intlCES">@intlCES</a> – here’s a first look. <a href="http://t.co/6Sx8wQQsdE">pic.twitter.com/6Sx8wQQsdE</a></p>— Qualcomm (@Qualcomm) <a href="https://twitter.com/Qualcomm/status/549633456503013376">December 29, 2014</a></blockquote> <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>
Meanwhile, most rumors indicate the phone to sport a Snapdragon 810 chipset. One of the most intriguing rumors about the LG F Flex 2 is it will come with a smaller screen size. There's no definite price available for the G Flex 2, but, if rumors are to be believed, the device could cost as high as Rs. 60,000.
