"Specs of Samsung's flexible display smartphone appear"
The first smartphone WITH flexible display.
The title of this news clearly stated. This is not Flexible Smartphone. :(
omel, 05 Oct 2013r u telling samsung to improve??? dude!!!
4, 4s, 5, 5s & 5c same shit!! but those phones still look WAY better than any of samsung's flagships, save for the 5c and screen estate.
It mean that you can pay a huge money and put your phone on your back pocket and won't be afraid that the screen may break in half if you sit.
OR NO, they can not even assure that too.
Then they say A7 is a marketing gimmick.
laxis, 05 Oct 2013Don't be fooled into thinking Flexible screen means Flexible phone. Flexible screen is NOTHING... moreHow 'bout put all the "inflexible" components in one end and stick out the flexible screen on the other?
How do you guys think if they can make a small PCBA and battery on the top or bottom of the phone, then we can bend the phone flexible on the middle like flip phone kakaka
Use your brain first..Did you think LED/Flat screen tv will be produced 20 years ago? Think out of box..Go to youtube and check for concept video and how it's done.
not nessecary ,
the phones can be designed as a two fold device ,
where you can lay the MOBO and other items under one fold , and then use external mechanisms to fold the other half . look for those third-party iphone 6 concepts , and the concepts samsung presented ,
folding lcd is not meant for making folding or twisting phone , it would be used for bringer a larger amount of screen into a smaller space ,
you will carry a 4.5 inch phone in your pocket , which will open up and reveal an 8 inch screen .
this is what fold able screens would be built for .
laxis, 05 Oct 2013Don't be fooled into thinking Flexible screen means Flexible phone. Flexible screen is NOTHING... moreIf they pushed all those unflexible parts to the top and bottom of the phone, then make the center part out of flexible plastic, maybe some small components can still reside in the flexible part in the center. There you have it.. a truly flexible phone. You have to be creative like samsung :)
Sell your Corning stocks now. This phone and future ones will not need Gorilla glass.

hussam1988, 04 Oct 2013Don't be fooled into thinking Flexible screen means Flexible phone. Flexible screen is NOTHING... moreImagine you drop your phone on glass front, flexible screen will take impact and it wont be smashed. Samsung should use this point to market flexible screen
