Many people complained when LG decided to give up on the LG G Flex series, after the G Flex 2. Maybe it’s time for a revival, this time with some foldable skills in the mix. The handset in question here is the LG G Flex X, a foldable phone that becomes an 8.5 inch tablet.

We see the device is curved on the sides and we have a discrete integration of the dual front camera. By the way, this phone has no notch from what we can see and the top and bottom bezel are quite big compared to modern standards. The two screens are hooked up seamlessly to work together. There’s also a multi display option, so you can use each part of the screen to play a different content or do a different activity.

While the concept sounds plausible and applies what we’ve seen in the sketches and patents, the second screen feels rather flimsy. Specs are also included, like a Snapdragon 855 CPU, 512 GB of storage and 8 GB of RAM. This is one of the most complex foldable smartphone concepts I’ve seen lately and it’s quite well done. I can’t quite figure out how the hinge works and how this thing can be made more resilient.

At its core it’s a dual display device, that has a screen at the back, which can be split from the body and moved towards the front, like a special rotating cover of sorts. I feel it needs some sorts of prongs or something to fixate it better…
