A video of The Verge on LG's new flexible 2 Flex
As with the previous generation of the device, the Flex 2 comes with a detachable rear cover that, according to the company, can cure scratches and defects within 10 only seconds. The back cover of the device may be removable, however LG Does not allow users to remove the device battery either, probably because of the unique design of the device that does not allow for a successful removal mechanism, or the company's unwillingness to provide this option.
In order to allow this excessive flexibility, the company chose to manufacture the 2, the vast majority of plastic, with a screen that is also made of plastic, not glass. LG Plans to launch its new flexible device in the Korean market at the end of the month with a global launch not long after, with intentions to price the Flex 2 higher than the company's current G3 device and even above the device expected to be replaced next year, which could make the device a niche In the market, and not for a flagship device leading a revolution.
