A phone that can is flexible enough to bend,roll and twist!! .
The rumours abound that next year will see the launch of the first flexible phone. Most of the mobile manufacturing companies are working on the technology – LG, Philips, Sharp, Sony and Nokia among them – although reports suggest that South Korean phone manufacturer Samsung will be the first to deliver with its Galaxy Skin.Samsung is expecting to keep its top position by this new series of Galaxy phone. Apple is keeping their usual way of silence and it is expected that mobile giant is also working on this new technology for their new generation phones.
The displays feature energy-efficient organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) that are highly compact and can be deployed on flexible materials such as plastic and foil. Samsung has begun testing the new devices with flexible displays with a few customers, according to the Wall Street Journal. The screens will be "foldable, rollable, wearable and more, also will allow for a high degree of durability through their use of a plastic substrate that is thinner, lighter and more flexible than conventional LCD technology," says a Samsung spokesperson.
Nokia also showed a concept phone at Nokia World with a flexible AMOLED screen that operates entirely by flexing called the 'Nokia kinetic device'. Nokia confirms the phone can be operated by also twisting the screen in different directions.The device comes with a large flexible OLED display that you can bend from the middle or from around the edges.But there is no confirmation on the release date of their new flexible phones and Nokia is working on this new technology phone to regain its crown in the mobile market again.
Whatever the technology, it is certain that in 2013 our phones will be not just smart, but bendy and also different operating mode by twisting rather than touch.
