LG says G Flex 2 and Vu 4 will launch in the second half of 2014

LG is celebrating their successful unveiling of the LG G3, a 2014 flagship that’s being well-received by many potential buyers in the early going. That doesn’t mean they aren’t already looking ahead to future projects, though, as the company had no problem confirming that they are working on the LG G Flex 2 and the LG Vu 4.

These devices — said to be due in the second half of 2014 — are predictably lower than the G3 on LG’s impact scale, though they will still be key components in a machine that has helped LG gain a bit of marketshare back from Samsung in the last year. The original G Flex wowed all with its self-healing back and virtually indestructible display. It didn’t have amazing specs, but it had enough punch to serve the needs of pretty much anyone.

The LG Vu 3 was a solid follow-up to the LG Vu 2 (known on Verizon as the LG Intuition). This was LG’s flagship stylus-equipped phablet, and while its 4:3 aspect ratio hasn’t been a favorite among many people there must be some group of folks out there who really dig it (otherwise we wouldn’t be on the fourth entry in the series by now).

LG has never had a problem cluing us in on future launch plans so it’s not too surprising they were willing to spill the beans here. What they won’t do, however, is give us an inkling of what to expect until the day the devices are unveiled. Guess we’ll just have to wait for the eventual rumor train to get rolling before we learn any other details.

    I have the G Flex with T-Mobile and I totally love it! While no phone is ever perfect, this has been the best to date! So far there are only two issues, and they’re really minor to me: the “ghosting” on the screen where I sometimes see traces of an image that was previously on the screen and the lack of compatibility for certain apps because this isn’t exactly a “popular” phone. Battery is absolutely phenomenal–not even a fatter battery on my previous Note 2 can hold up to the standard battery here.

    I really look forward to the Flex 2! I’m hoping that they can slightly increase the already-large 6″ screen size (6.1-6.2″??) without increasing the overall footprint by much–perhaps by reducing the upper and lower bezel. I would also love a bit more flex in the phone so I can show it off lol!

    Another Vu eh? I remember when the first one came out and it was the phone to own for first timers who wanted a touch screen only device.

    I shyed away from the G-Flex for several reasons this last go around. I’m guessing that the changes won’t likely go in my favor this time either.

    My Note 2 at the time was about as large as I cared to go. I’m guessing the new flex will only increase in size. I hope the solve the ghosting and resolution issues.

    I will wait for the official release, but I’m not holding my breath that it will get any smaller.

    Glad to see them announce ahead of time future release of hardware so the consumer can make a proper decision on buying now or waiting a bit.

    The Flex was not a great phone; in 2014 a phone should not have lag and a much crisper screen. I tried one out for a couple of weeks while I was waiting for my Sony Xperia Z Ultra…camera sucks on the Sony, but everything else is premium….fast processor, excellent display.
