LG G Flex 3 or LG G5 to be the First Premium Foldable Smartphone

LG has already made it clear what their future smartphones would feature, and in 2016 they have announced the introduction of foldable smartphones. The current LG G5 and LG G Flex 3 rumors suggest that both will be released in 2016 so we are almost certain that one, if not both will feature a foldable design.

The foldable concept is an intriguing one, and one that we’re hoping to see. It would probably more fitting in the LG G Flex 3 concept due to the unique nature of the phone itself. Imagine a premium smartphone with the most unique features in one including a flexible display, self-healing back, and a foldable design.

The foldable design also fits the concept of a much larger smartphone. This is another reason to think it would be the LG G Flex 3 instead of the LG G5. Other LG G Flex 3 rumors suggest that the bigger, 6” screen will return along with an octa-core processor and 4K display.

The LG G smartphone concept is already dubbed as a premium device, and typically appeals to high end users. While the foldable concept would be an interesting one, it probably wouldn’t fit in the LG G5 concept.

The LG G Flex concept already features a bendable design, and the upcoming LG G Flex 2 is rumored to bend to a full 90 degrees. The overall concept between the original and the 2nd release will not have any major changes, but enhancements will be seen.

Other rumors between the Flex 2 and the original Flex is an improved self-healing back. Artificial heat is supposed to reduce the time it takes to dissipate blemishes and scratches, and increase what can be healed all-together.

Over the course of the next few months after the LG G Flex 2 February 2015 release date, we are expecting to hear more on both the LG Flex 3 and the LG G5. As more information comes available on LG’s intention of a foldable design, you can expect to hear it here first.
