Strong reports point to the possibility that Samsung is working on two separate bendable smartphones. From the calculations of these prospects, it appears these two smartphones could be ready for release as early as 2017.
Delving into further details, a version of the smartphones will adopt the functionality of an organic light emitting diode (OLED) scree. This according to plan will make space for you to fold completely in half.
And the other a smartphone would be accompanied by a flexible display. This will give the users the ability to stretch it even extensively into an 8-inch device from a previously 5-inch device.
“This product could be a game-changer if Samsung successfully comes up with a user interface suitable for bendable screens,” said Lee Seung Woo, an analyst at the reputable IBK Securities in Seoul.
“Next year is a probable scenario. Their biggest obstacle was related to making transparent plastics and making them durable, which seems resolved by now.”
The South Korean electronics giant has really been fiddling with the concept for a while now even as far back as 2008 with the idea of putting strings to real this groundbreaking invention of bendable phones; which rollover reflected a prototype of a device that embolden together two screens.
That very year, Samsung rolled out the Galaxy Note Edge smartphone, which rocked delicious features such a curved OLED display. This was immediate keenly followed up by the Galaxy S6 Edge and the Galaxy S7 Edge, both of which had taken on an unchanged screen design.
If I will try place my finger on when we would be having the concrete potential launch date for the two new bendable devices, this very likely could be Mobile World Congress, which will be convening takes place in Barcelona in February 2017.
