As noted on Sprint’s website, the device is getting updated directly to the latest build, version 5.1.1. Additionally, Sprint says that the LG G Flex 2 is getting factory reset protection. Keep your eyes out for the update to start rolling out starting today.

Following Samsung’s announcement of the Galaxy Round, the world’s first curved-display smartphone, Engadget has discovered a few renders of LG’s upcoming entry to the curved smartphone arena. The phone, called the G Flex, will feature a top-to-bottom curved display—the opposite of the Galaxy Round, which left-to-right.

Nothing more is known about the phone at the moment, but it is said to be expected some time next month. More renders are included below.
