World’s First Bendy Smartphone Expected to be Released Next Year

Published by Stephen Roper on Tagged New Technology

A new smartphone called the Samsung Galaxy Skin with a bendy and flexible display is expected to be released next year.

The new Samsung Galaxy skin will have a flexible screen which means that it can be bent into almost any shape. To do this it will feature a 4” WVGA Super AMOLED screen which will be much brighter and energy efficient than previous displays, bend into different shapes without affecting the image quality and even withstand a blow by a hammer!

The display is made from a special material called Graphene which is said to be the strongest material in the world, 200 times stronger than structural steel.

By bending the screen on the new handset it can be changed into many different items including a mouse, clock, wrist watch or even a projector.

Other features on the new smartphone include a 1.2 Ghz processor, 1GB of RAM, a 16GB or 32GB internal memory, an 8.0 mega-pixel camera on the back and VGA camera on the front, Bluetooth 3.0 and lots more.

The Galaxy Skin will run on the Android operating system but it’s not yet know which version will be used. Internet rumours suggest that it could be either the newest Android operating system called Jelly Bean or a future version will be named after this smartphone’s key feature and be called Android Flexy.

It’s not known exactly when the Galaxy Skin will be available to buy however Samsung have hinted that it will be at some point in 2012.
