First of their kind devices are double-edged swords for manufacturers. On the one hand, they introduce a new feature that has never been seen before, but on the other, they are often unable to achieve the a respectable sales figure. The LG G Flex fell into both camps when it launched late last year, but a small amount of sales isn’t stopping Sprint from rolling out an update to the flexible display-toting smartphone.
The update will enable G Flex users to make calls over Wi-Fi, a feature that Sprint has rolled out a few other devices in the past few weeks. Other changes in the update are rather minor, and include SMS and security patches from Google, the latter of which could fix some bugs related to the Heartbleed vulnerability that was discovered earlier this year. The update will begin rolling out from today, and will make its way to devices between now and July 16th.
