Samsung hints foldable display gear for 2015, brags Galaxy line achievements

At its first analyst event in 8 years, Samsung presented what's in the pipeline going forward, with a specific takeaway about its YOUM brand of flexible displays with plastic substrate. Surprisingly, the company divides its YOUM panels in "curved", "bended" and... wait for it... "foldable" ones...

u can NOT be at the top for something u have not created yet. they are scared of lg and its flexible display. what they are doing here is that they are letting everybody know that they ''WILL BE THE FIRST'' creating a flexible display on a smartphone, wich is tottaly stupid. in other words: pathetic.

LG will kick their butt

And is is the perfect time to buy their flexible phones. I don't have to rush out and buy the GS III IV or NOTE III. I'm waiting for their flexible phones

Yep, still remember that tablet. A good idea but executed poorly.

tablet p was also a fail. we need a foldable display that has no gap between the folded parts.

two separate screen vs one screen is a huge difference

Samsung reached the 100 million mark a while ago tho.

Apparently that estimate was incorrect, since Samsung has been making a big deal about it this week. That means you should take most of their "sales" figures with a grain of salt.

Incorrect. They didn't start throwing that number around this week. The reference in the article even links to the article from January when they reached 100 million. Considering they have sold over 40 million S4s since then & many million more , S2s, S3s, Note 2s, & Note 3s, I'm willing to bet they'll be hitting the 200 million mark very soon if they haven't already.

SAMSUNG DISPLAY FOLDABLE ~ IPHONE DISPLAY CAN'T IT CRACKED INTO PIECES LOL :D

That's a pretty stupid comment, considering any phone drop from the right height will crack. Boy you're really chasing those green thumbs this morning huh? Since no ones given you one yet, I'll help you out. +1 buddy

Then you should definitely never own one. See how simple that is?

Not to mention same design.

What about batteries? This is THE most important component that needs an update
16. darkkjedii (Posts: 20034; Member since: 05 Feb 2011)
Seems like battery advancement is only to make it bigger. At some point size will max out, and making the cells last longer will be a priority. But since the trend is bigger phones, they just slap in a bigger battery. +1
19. ph00ny (Posts: 1196; Member since: 26 May 2011)
You make it sound as if tech hasn't been advancing in battery efficiency. Based on the article battery form factor will change more so than size
27. marbovo (Posts: 658; Member since: 16 May 2013)
Yeah, but phones are consuming more and more energy every year and the bigger batteries are just keeping them alive for 1 or 2 days, i´m talking about a battery that last 1 week, that is what people want, not curved or bendable phones
33. marbovo (Posts: 658; Member since: 16 May 2013)
I figured it out after posting my reply... :)
28. marbovo (Posts: 658; Member since: 16 May 2013)
Most of time that i´m on street, my phone keeps in my pocket, I don´t see it solar recharging in that situation.
29. Miracles (Posts: 560; Member since: 31 Aug 2013)
Haha yeah, I suppose. Just throwing out ideas...its interesting what they gonna do for the battery. We have curved batteries now, so folding batteries on a transparent screen....hmmmm.
Maybe its gonna be powered by body heat lol.

The S3 & S4 have sold over 100 million together. Total cumulative sales of the S & Note series together at this point is probably around 200 million.
25. mturby (unregistered)
yeah, and they wasted all the profits advertising the s3, s4 and note. wich brings their entire sales to 1%. Unlike iphone...ps..im android fan

Your statement makes little sense. Try again.
