Well, well, well, the plot thickens. One day after Lenovo showed off the Cplus, a sort of prototype of a bendable smartphone that actually has the ability to wrap around a user’s wrist (just like those slap bracelets of old), Samsung has revealed officially that, yes, the South Korean tech giant is also working on its own bendable devices and is planning to launch them by 2017.
At the recent Tech World conference held in the city of San Francisco in California, not only did Lenovo unveil new Phab2 devices (the Phab2 Pro, the Phab2, and the Phab2 Plus) and new Motorola flagship devices (the Moto Z and the Moto Z Force), the Chinese tech giant also took the opportunity to reveal that it is busy exploring tec
The US Patent and Trademark Office recently granted Apple a patent dubbed "flexible electronic devices." Essentially, it describes a handset that is made up of flexible components both in its internal and external parts.
Back in 2014, LG released the G Flex handset, a 6-inch smartphone with a unique curved body design and a self-healing coating that clears up scratches or any damage done to the device's casing.
Now, the South Korean company is introducing an enhanced and more streamlined version, the G Flex 2. This time around, the newest version comes with a smaller but more handy 5.5-inch display screen, and Qualcomm's most powerful chip set.
Maybe not. But that has not stopped top phone makers like Samsung and LG from trying. As a matter of fact, Samsung has gone on record just last month that it is working on a few designs that it might push to its manufacturers. It may be a long shot, but we could be seeing a working prototype in a year or so, and even a finished product for end users soon after.
