Allegedly, the supposed G Flex 3 will be a completely new design from the existing G Flex series and may be taking cues from the Galaxy S6 Edge.

LG may not be the most popular smartphone manufacturer, but the South Korean company produces respectable devices from the LG G4 to the G Flex 2 and the upcoming V10. Its G Flex series in particular is unique in the smartphone space and will typically grab headlines for its curved screens. Thus, it's unsurprising that LG would have a successor up its sleeve for the 2016 time frame.

According to @evLeaks, LG will indeed launch another smartphone with a curved display, but the overall design will be a departure from the previous G Flex 2. The manufacturer may be experimenting with different styles of curved displays such as the one used on the Galaxy S6 Edge and its dual-edge design.

LG had already demonstrated a dual-edge 6-inch OLED display at CES 2015, which suggests that there may be something in the works utilizing the technology for 2016. Flexible displays are also a possibility and may be further down the road.

According to sales rankings from leading market analysts, LG has been facing a downward trend due to increasing pressure from rising Chinese companies like Xiaomi and Huawei. Its Q3 2015 results, for example, saw a 21 percent decline in smartphone sales and an operating loss of almost 62 million Euros. HTC is also deep in the red due to tepid sales of its well-regarded One M8 and M9 series.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
