Video shows Xiaomi's bendable screen in action



Just yesterday we told you that there were indications that Chinese smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi is working on a bendable screen. Still images showed a display featuring Xiaomi's UI bent at an angle. As we pointed out, the photos seemed to show only a display without the inner workings of the phone which made us question the legitimacy of the images.

Today, a video has been posted on YouTube that shows the bendable screen in action. Watching the video, you can see the screen scrolling smoothly, navigating the bend without a problem. The question is, when will Xiaomi be able to bring this to market at a decent price point? The company is known for its value-based pricing.

Xiaomi isn't the only Chinese based smartphone manufacturer working on a bendable phone. During Lenovo Tech World back in June, YouTube star Meghan McCarthy demonstrated a handset that could be turned into a bracelet to be worn on the wrist

Watch for yourself as Xiaomi's bendable screen concept gets tested. Simply click on the video at the top of this article.

Way to go Xiaomi!!! That screen looks amazing! I loved the "edge" features, hopefully we get to see something like that on the Xiaomi Mi Note 2, which could be revealed on late November. :D

Sure can bet Apple/Samsung WON'T have any of this soon. As with most manufacturers, they want to milk the cow instead of INNOVATING. Why spend the R&D to come up with something innovative, when all they have to do to get people to willingly continue to buy new phones ever 12-18 months is stick a faster processor in it along with a fancy looking case. The next maker that comes out the door with something like this, and WORKS, will have them beating down the doors. A lot of manufacturers get stuck in the Xerox or IBM thinking. I remember in the 60's through very early 80's, if you wanted a photocopier, you bought a Xerox. To the point, Xerox became a verb. "here, co xerox these". Then, Canon, Toshiba, Sharp and others made huge strides, and now Xerox is more of an afterthought. Same thing with IBM... Apple/Samsung/HTC/LG etc have not innovated. Apple, really hasn't innovated in 10 years. The iPhone, is pretty much the same. Better screen, faster processor...that's pretty much it.

That is just a curved screen. Hell TV's already have that.

It doesn't show a bendable screen in action; It shows a bent screen in action.

Well, he's actually right, the screen did not bend, it was already bent. I also would have liked to see it bending while being used. Now look at my current and past phone and tell me I'm a hater too :P

Lol! Its just curved or bent screen. Just like lg g flex but has bigger curvature. We can only say its bendable if we see it being bent in action. Seems the author of this article has to do some research more to find out the correct definition of the word bendable.

It looks fake. Just look closely how he is holding it is his left hand. It is definitely fake video.

I wouldn't say LG is not an innovator. They always came up with first/different things. Uhd screen, laser focus, curved screen, leather back, dual cameras , modular design, knock on/code etc.

Just remember nokia world 2012, I'm just getting bored with flexible display prototypes,Nokia(now microsoft),samsung, lg, lenovo, xiaomi, oppo almost every manufacturer have/had shown these types of bendy-flexy devices in last 5-6 years but none of those devices reaches consumers. Dont know why? Its like dreaming of Scarlet johanson as your girlfriend but reality isnt that. Right.

Most likely due to expensive tech. These companies just want to showcase their tech and not releasing it anytime soon.
