Marko, 27 Oct 2011First of all Samsung has demonstrated flexible amoled displays a... moreTo answer your question
however, Samsung said the Skin is not in. "It is a project that has been carried out by design students and is just a concept product. Samsung was not involved in the project," a Samsung rep told T3. "The students used the name Galaxy Skin and the Samsung logo in their concept to make it look more like a commercial product."

Furthermore, Are you saying that idea of navigating the phone using Twisting and bending is OLD? actually its far more impressive than the actual screen :)

Yeah, it's pretty obvious that glass won't bend

Interesting enough, wonder what OS does that thing run on? Whatever it would be, I doubt it would be the one these devices would end up using, but at least I do not recognize it.

greg, 27 Oct 2011do you really think that such corporation like nokia made silly ... morethe oled display is already patented by Sony, just a search on youtube you can see a a flexible oled screen shown a few years back on a tech show.

First of all Samsung has demonstrated flexible amoled displays almost a a year ago, but I am not sure and they have already developed a prototype phone called samsung galaxy skin, just search using google. So I just don´t get it what the big deal this news is?

  • AnonD-7829

I guess it would be likely that they would also implement the more traditional means of navigating (swiping, etc). Just cos it can be navigated like that doesn't necessarily mean there is no other way.

Interesting concept, although I sorta doubt we will see anything using this for a while in mass production.

this might be great to show case that the screen is flexible, but why in the heck do you want a phone that bends. your asking for trouble with that.

  • jobless

now if only nokia could come up with a tablet using them darn flexible o-led...... that's bound to be a win over other vanilla tablets..

  • odengv

how can you bend it by using one hand only, i think its a no no for nokia, anyway thanks for trying

  • Geoff Burns

This phone would be great if you got in to a fight on a night out in sunderland. It would still bend back in to shape unlike my nose!
