This Chinese smartphone is real and completely flexible, but we're sure not in a rush to get it
As you can see in the pictures, the Android-powered phone is fully operational and easily wraps around half the arm of a lady in the audience. The screen's image quality seems downright abhorrent from what we're seeing, and the usability benefit of being able to wear your phone like a bracelet isn't entirely convincing yet. But this device is clearly a technological showcase, rather than a product coming to retail in the near future. It's also full of promise. Bendable graphene and OLED screens will un-tie the hands of product designers and they will be able to come up with imaginative, unique stuff! In the era of smartphones that desperately try to convince us that they are something more than yet another metal rectangle, this is sorely needed.
While we don't have any more intel on the bendable graphene phone, there's a video available in the source link that shows the novel device in action. Perhaps this prototype will be remembered as a piece of tech history one day. Or maybe not. It doesn't matter, folks, the future is now within reach!
