When several folks were left feeling a bit uneasy about the Snapdragon 810’s alleged overheating issues at the start of this year, the LG G Flex 2 soothed things a little bit. LG choice for Qualcomm’s top tier SoC on its device left many to think that perhaps the rumors weren’t as strong as earlier thought. While this was disproved later on and even LG chose to stick with the Snapdragon 808 for the much more prominent LG G4, things will be back to normal next year its being reported now.

Mobipicker claims to have received a tip about the alleged specifications of the LG G Flex 2’s successor, which according to the publication will be out by March next year.

All of this will be topped off with 32 GB of internal storage which should also be expandable with Micro SD.
