We’ve already heard whispers that LG’s second-generation G Flex will be making its debut at CES 2015 next week — and now a new report from South Korea promises the device will be powered by Qualcomm’s latest 64-bit Snapdragon processor and have LTE-Advanced connectivity for ultra-fast data speeds.

According to Korea’s Naver.com, the G Flex 2 was expected to be the world’s first 64-bit smartphone to support tri-band LTE-Advanced networks, with up to four times faster speeds than conventional LTE. However, Samsung’s newest Galaxy Note 4 — which was announced for South Korea last week — just beat it to that title.

Like the new Note 4, the G Flex 2 be powered by the Snapdragon 810 chip, sources claim, and it will have a smaller but sharper display. The original G Flex had a 6-inch screen with a 720p resolution, but the newer model is expected to measure in around 5.5 inches — like this year’s LG G3 — and have a Full HD 1080p resolution.

The G Flex 2 is expected to keep the original’s self-healing back panel, and of course its signature curves. It’s unclear when the device will actually be available to purchase, but hopefully we’ll know more about its release date when the handset gets its official unveiling at CES in Las Vegas next week.
