Flexible Cellphones: The Future Technology

Cellphone producers have come a truly long way during recent years, and the impressive releases that have seen the light of day lately are also the result of consumers’ enthusiast and desire to purchase superior devices on a constant basis. Flexible cellphones are highly likely to become the phones of the future. Samsung is known to have created a successful prototype for a flexible cellphone. Despite of the fact you cannot get it know, as the device is not yet in the market, chances are you are going to fully enjoy it in just a few years.

The screen of the flexible phone accommodates plastic components, instead of using the regular glass we are all used to. These OLED made phone screens are easily flexible and they can give birth to an amazing curved design. The bending cellphone that Samsung will soon have in store for all passionate phone users is going to presumably be unbreakable and the CES gadget show that recently took place in Las Vegas displayed the device in front of an enthusiastic crowd.

The cellphones of the future are expected to be incorporated in the future Samsung handsets, despite of the fact that the devices that were displayed there ran software provided by Microsoft experts. The prototype that the head of the Samsung lab in California presented to the audience featured a hard enclosure the size of a box of matches, and a flexible, colored screen as thin as a piece of paper, which was attached to one of the device’s ends. In case you are expecting to see a cellphone that perfectly folds in two, just like a piece of paper, you might be a little disappointed. The prototype that promises to turn into the phone of the future can only be folded into a tube, at the time being.

You might also be interested to hear about the phone-sized device that hosts a large tablet-like screen inside, and which opens up like a book. The prototype for this device is not yet built, but a video of the future concept has shown that the device would be using OLEDSs for its screen. OLEDSs are known to be diodes that organically emit light and which solely require thin layers of chemicals to give birth to highly colorful screens. A great number of Samsung screens are already encompassing the OLED technology as we speak, despite of the fact that they have been incorporated into glass made screens. The flexible phone will be using these chemicals over extremely thin plastic.

Phones that feature displays that are rather rigid, but which are nicely bent around their edges so they can display incoming text messages despite off the fact that the main screen of the devices might be covered are also out on the table.
