Designer styles bendy Samsung smartphone
Samsung has demo'd flexible, foldable OLED displays, and here's a concept one designer has posted to show how such a screen might change the phones we choose.
Heyon You's Samsung Galaxy Skin is an ultra-slim handset with a fold over screen that lets it be folded for ease of portability and opened out for maximum display space.
It's a kind of clamshell and candybar all in one.
And since it's flexible rather than hinged, you can wrap it around your wrist or bend over the ends so it stands up for landscape viewing.
Alas, it's just one guy's flight of fancy, not a Samsung sanctioned concept, presented on creative types' website Yanko Design, from which these pictures come. It has may more.
The proposed spec doesn't matter much - it has everything, natch - but we'd sure like to get our mitts on this Android gadget of tomorrow.
Come on, Samsung, what do you say? If you're quick, you might even get it out before the Nokia Aeon concept the Finnish phone giant pitched in 2006 and for which we are still waiting... ®

Art student renderings are news now?
Rendered 3rd party imaginings are rarely ever practical or influence anything.
Apple have already patented this
This is obviously a copy of an Apple and should be stopped immediately.
Suck on that Apple!
