Flexible Samsung tablet concept out with specs, bottom part folds to a stand and keyboard

Samsung showed working prototypes with its YOUM brand of flexible displays at the CES expo this year, but besides a dreamy concept video there haven't been much news on its alleged tablet with bendable AMOLED panel so far.

This just changed as a flexible 10" tablet render has leaked, and some specs are thrown in for a good measure. The bendy panel is supposed to sport Full HD 1920x1080 pixels resolution, lit up by a 1.6 GHz Exynos 5 Octa processor, paired with 2 GB of RAM, 16/32 GB of storage, and microSD card slot for more. A 3 MP front camera plus a beefy 8000 mAh battery are supposed to round up the flexible Samsung tablet.

Of note is the lack of a rear camera, as the top part of the slate is seemingly thinner than the bottom, which can bend, thus serving as both a stand, and maybe a keyboard half when the need arises, though the space seems too tight to fit a decent QWERTY.

The render looks like the patent sketches below that Samsung filed not long ago, so it might be partially based on them, but mum's the word on when or whether are we going to see it in flesh and blood. What do you think, would you have a use for such a bendable tablet concept?

soon day will come that we can carry 11 inch tablet by folding it in half and keeping it smaller pockets.

Guys, starting to sound like some of those blindly faithful Apple fans here.

I have (and really like) SGS1,2 & 3 plus Samsung TV's and monitors, but I'm not about to buy everything Samsung nor believe they are all wonderful, best at everything they do or even care about me as a consumer!

Neither them nor ANY corporation are worthy of love or blind devotion. They're all in it for our money and profits, not for our well being.

I value fellow Android supporters for their objectivity (as compared to many Apple fans)... hope this isn't changing.

I've shared the same sentiments with many other fellow Android users. Well said rcl4444.

i agree with you, they should fold it vertically. If you want to watch a serie you can use it as tablet and if you want to use it as a laptop. that would be the ultimate device! It does look nice too as it is now ghehe:P

This one definitely way more innovative than useless boom sound and blinfeed.

Your sentence would've sufficed if it ended at "innovative". I agree that it's innovative, but I just don't think you need to go around bashing other companies for making their own technologies. Fanboyism won't make the world any better.

There is nothing innovative about boom sound, its still horrible phone speaker quality. Go get a pair of real speakers + a subwoofer if you want good sound quality. Blink feed is a ripoff of flipboard and is worse.

I wonder how well this will hold up. While it's only a rendering, if you bend plastic back and forth enough times, it eventually stresses, and breaks. If this is a real device, I will be curious to see how this is addressed.

The problem of samsung is the part where the display is bending gets lesser brightness over the period of usage..
Lets just wait and rely on these tech wizards

Physical button (most likely capacitive buttons too) and onscreen buttons, just a concept that never come true!

Always great to see my old concepts back. But yes this was based on does patents. I felt having 2 different colors made it stand out more. Lucky i know how to make things better now and of course getting better angles. Anyway thank you for sharing! (sad that they guy from Mobi removed my name and logo on more concept ugh)
