Samsung hopes to take screens to a new level next year by introducing flexible displays in handsets. The company stated last month that “the flexible display, we are looking to introduce sometime in 2012, hopefully the earlier part. The application probably will start from the handset side”. A new video has been uploaded to YouTube by Samsung reminding us of their intentions. The short 30 second concept promo is actually a tablet, not a handset, but shows us what the future might be like – specifically on a flexible 3D AMOLED display. This all sounds and looks very promising – take the potential of flexible displays, coupled with the recently announced dual-core 2GHz Samsung Exynos 5250 processor and 2012 is shaping up nicely.

    So is the processor going to be made out of glass as well?

    I think Samsung forgot how the real world works.

    • Bhell

      No. You forgot how the real world work. It’s call branding. It wasn’t a technical video, it was a marketing video.

    Apple already has a patent for this. Samsung would be wise to stop infringing. Learn to innovate, not STEAL!

    • steve

      Apple has a patent on a tech that can’t be fully realized as of yet? get your head out of you 455 you dumb apple fanboy.

  • aDhanjal13

    So the future is going to be filled with people holding up flexible screens up in the air wherever they go ? lol

    Samsung a patent, not apples. Apple should learn to not sue everyone to boost their own sales.

  • Dan

    Apple has a patent on releasing the same crappy phones and tablets with outdated 2007 UIs and behind the curve specs every year to the millions of sheep that are ready to ruin themselves for crappy tech.

    Stop insulting Samsung by bringing up Apple. Looking forward to another great year from Samsung in 2012. They already had the best smartphone of 2011 in the SGS2, and the sky’s the limit for them.

    A phone like that would be right at home at the Boneless Chicken Ranch!

    But how will I secretly have inappropriate conversations about the people who are sitting near me on the GO Train if everyone can see through my flexible display?!?
