LG Electronics has unveiled its new G Flex 2 curved smartphone with a faster “self-healing” coat and improved performance specifications built into a smaller handset.

Introduced at the Consumer Electronics Show 2015 in Las Vegas, the new model looks like a shrunken version of the original G Flex pumped with the latest Qualcomm 810 processor, the BBC reports.

Tech fans were divided over the smaller 5.5-in. device, with some impressed with its improved features but others generally underwhelmed.

The smartphone’s “self-healing” coating has been upgraded to quickly patch up any scratches it suffers in around 10 seconds, shaming its predecessor, which took minutes to do the same.

The phone also features a 13.1-megapixel camera on the rear of the handset and a 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera.

The electronics company has not released any sale dates nor said how much the G Flex 2 will cost.
