LG G Flex self-healing back shown on video; tipped for AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile


The LG G Flex’s durable ways aren’t confined to the virtually indestructible display. If you don’t remember, LG also touted the fact that they used a back material that was able to heal itself. This means the phone can look as new in 2 years as it did when you first bought it.

It’s one of the biggest things LG is proud of with the release of the G Flex, so they saw fit to make an entire video to show you just how well it works. You can find that quick video above if you’re interested — it might not persuade you to buy the thing, but it’s something cool to watch nonetheless.

With that, you might be wondering where you’ll be able to find this phone in the United States. New rumors from @evleaks suggest AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile will all be looking to launch the device for your flexible needs. Verizon is notably missing from that list, but Big Red is always hit-or-miss when it comes to non-flagship devices. Things could change, of course, but for now it’s not worth betting on.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

    1. Many thanks for the link, fixed now. :)

  4. Ok, that’s way cool.

    How do I get my car made like that?

    1. I can’t remember where I saw it, but there was an article on car paint that uses a process similar to photosynthesis to “heal” minor scratches and dents it a car’s finish. There wasn’t a demonstration video, but the idea of self-healing car paint isn’t too far fetched apparently.

      1. There was also an idea using Shape Memory Alloys to get those dents to pop out by pouring hot water over it.

  5. The way it heals is pretty amazing on video

  6. That was pretty nuts. I hope they integrate all of this technology in next year’s G3.

  7. I wasn’t about the idea of flex but it looks pretty impressive.

  8. Ooo!! It looks like other OEM’s will have some competition in the curved display market.

  9. and this is why i love Android, so many DIFFERENT devices to choose from!

  10. The durability is pretty cool..add in some water and dust proofing and it would finally be a phone my mechanic buddy might not destroy!

  11. Pretty awesome!

  12. this is pretty awesome. now if only it had a 1080p display, removable battery, and micro sd card slot, i’d be all over it. oh, and does it have the 13MP OIS camera from the LG G2? I want a better one than that.

    1. I suppose you also want to be able to suck your cock too?

      jks jks

      1. i think that’s a given for any mid-high end android device

        1. You bring up a fair point.

  13. Verizon probably won’t carry it unless they can get self duplicating logos.

  14. This is one of the few devices that when I see the company made videos I ALWAYS say ‘wow’. I can’t wait to see it in person.

  15. Come on VZW you have to get this one, I mean a flexible phone, crazy or something. :-(
