This reminds me one of the old days when we used to go "Wow" at Nokia N98 with the ability to transform itself to mini-notepad for increased productivity. Why can't the manufactures take Nokia's boom age (2003-2011) as an inspiration and create their own at the current trend to boost their product demands?
Who else?, 07 Jun 2016LG has been working on and demoing rollable/foldable screen tech for years as well. Ex. http:... moreIt goes way back to 2007 when, together with Philips and UDC, presented a full-color flexible AMOLED display at SID 2007.
During that same time and place, Sony also presented their flexible OLED display.

Samsung's hardware = good
Samsung's choice in OS (Android) = poor
They should have went for anything else rather than Android. Heck, even Symbian would've been better if they were to get rights from Nokia over it. (and improve it, ofc)
Anonymous, 08 Jun 2016for hardware , yes , for software , no !What is wrong with their software... obviously another baby crying for touchwiz... which is actually fine..
This is where real novelty begins, not like Apple which releases something significant only once a few years but sheep still raise it as a winner company.

Anonymous, 07 Jun 2016You can't bend an lcd at all. Have you been living under a rock?
Flexible LCD screens have been released since 3 years ago.
iron wolve, 08 Jun 2016samsung is smart in tecfor hardware , yes , for software , no !
When after two decades or so most people will be using folded phones and tabs, the kids will be curious when this all started, and they will find this article, I like that.
zodiacfml, 07 Jun 2016I don't think it will have a seamless display.The problem is not the screen being seamless, it will be. But there is a limit to how much you can bend this before it damages the actual LCD. So the best format would be the one shown (book) or something like a phone prop that was used in a series called "Earth final Conflict" (Jim Roddenberry) it basically was a handheld part that you would unwrap the screen from.
If you search online for all examples of the flexible screen you will notice the limit of how far you can bent it at current technology.
Anonymous, 07 Jun 2016Dear Samsung, We don't need foldable phone, we want transparent phone just like what you show ... moreWhile we're at it, we should all get the arc reactors that will power entire cities for free, everyone gets personal power suits, and indestructible everything made of Adamantium, etc.
Gigantic flying aircraft carriers would be cool too. But you know...
