Samsung shows off flexible solid state battery that can't burst in flames


Korean media is reporting that Samsung is coming out with flexible batteries in its turn, after LG announced its trifecta of curved, 'stepped' and flexible ones.

Samsung's pieces, shown at the Korea Energy Show 2013, are also meant to be indestructible or in the case of batteries, non-flammable, since it is using non-liquid electrolyte for their production. 

They can also twist and bend, and be stacked on top of each other for achieving higher energy densities. Prime candidates are, besides bendy smartphones like the Galaxy Round, also wearables, and anywhere you need a flexible battery that won't burst in flames under extreme conditions.

Put the Note 3 battery in all phones from here on and you'll have a lot of happy customers.

Dont get very excited about flexible stuff because all of the components of the phone need to flexible for a flexible phone to happen. Till then you will see epic fail phones like the galaxy round.

Shatter proof screen isn't good enough for you? You seem quite the troll don't you?

@Smurf so you're trying to say that galaxy round is a great phone? My comment was a general statement about flexible phones. I was not trolling. Shatterproof screen would be great though....

I think that the Galaxy Round is a great phone. It looks special, too bad it is only available at South Korea.

I just don't know why some people think flexible screens are shatter-proof

I just don't know why when people read "flexible display", their tiny brains can only imagine a FLEXIBLE phone. What we know is that with a flexible screen, the phone will be more shatter resistant. We don't know how much yet. Shatter proof? We'll soon find out. The Galaxy round is not an epic fail.. it's a first case use of new flexible display technology. I'm excited to hear reviews about how durable the screen is. I don't care about the curvature of the screen.. I care about the screen itself.

"I just don't know why when people read "flexible display", their tiny brains can only imagine a FLEXIBLE phone." Agree.

You miss the point of my comment, I didn't talk about flexible phone. I'm happy because I see innovations and tech evolution.

"Epic fail like the Galaxy round"? Where do you get your information from? And when did you hold and use the Galaxy Round so extensively that you have labelled it epic fail? Do you think that everyone else is like you, without common sense?

I like the galaxy round auto 'screen on' function, hope it get integrated into future S5 or Note 4.

Just innovating for sake of innovating is not good. It's important to do it right, looks like fan droids think gimmicky features is innovation. Therefore whoever a list of gimmicky features is bigger is the more innovative company.

Can it survive drowning too?

This is innovation, the Galaxy round is not

The word innovation does not translate to "good product" it means doing something very different from what is mainstream. Something that deviates almost entirely from what is made by everyone else. Thats why if your idea is too innovative it could very well be rejected by society. Galaxy round is too innovative. In my opinion samsung was racing with LG. Who releases the weirdo curved phone first lol XD
