Samsung shows its concept of flexible displays in the future
There is a fierce rivalry between Samsung and LG as both companies are trying to be the first one to bring devices with flexible displays to market, and while right now it seems that LG has got the upper hand, Samsung has released a dreamy concept video about how the future world of bendable screens and wearable devices will look like.

The concept video shows a device with a flexible screen that you can fold and unfold. Its interface changes with that adapting to the new form.

The video is also about the modern face of healthcare and the possibility to send your health data wirelessly directly to your doctor instead of visiting him. That could happen via painless patch sensors with arrayed antennas. This sensor would read the biological data of your body and tell you whether or not you need to visit your doctor.

Samsung strategy head Young Sohn showed the dreamy concept video at VentureBeat’s MobileBeat conference in San Francisco. As good as it all looks, we hope to see more real-world devices rather than imaginary concepts soon. Fingers crossed.

I like how these flexible displays can help us with our everyday lives by making things much easier and convenient. But I'm worried by how much they'd be pricing these things

Agreed. The initial cost might be much but hopefully it will find its way to freedom due to adoption. Though I must say that the applications for this is endless almost.

i saw a video years ago showing a device like this. In the video i saw, it explained that this sort of technology wont be available until nano-technology becomes more main stream.

Umm nope this isn't innovation this is called Copying and imitating. Need I remind you all that Nokia already had flexible screens in R&D, enough said. Long before Samsung jumped on to the bandwagon pffft.

Innovate and Invent are 2 different things. I remember hearing the government funding some project about 5-6 years ago that was researching flexible displays. Nokia or any of these phone manufacturing companies didn't invent the technology, but Samsung and LG will be the first to actually bring the new tech out. So technically yes, Sammy and LG are innovators.

Awesome! This is something that I have imagined before when Samsung revealed their flexi-OLED 2 years ago. This will be deal-breaker if they can adopt this into a smartphone. Expandable screen (switching from 5 inch to 7 inches maybe?) yet still pocketable. It's not going to happen soon for sure.

flexible display needs every goddamn component to be flexible to hit its full potential. But they are great for 2014 as unbreakable displays. Goodbye Corning
