Samsung has announced it will introduce flexible mobile phones next year, with the prospect of bendy tablets and other tech close behind.

During a company financial results conference, Samsung's investor relations chief Robert Yi said: "The flexible display, we are looking to introduce sometime in 2012, hopefully the earlier part."

The Samsung executive added that the bendable screen would be implemented on handsets first, with other mobile devices to follow closely behind.

As previously reported, flexible OLED displays - where each pixel generates light - are now available, making the concept a viable option.

Evidence for such was on show down at Nokia World 2011, where the Finnish outfit touted its own flexible mobile phone concept. The Nokia Kinetic prototype allows users to twist and bend the phone as a means of controlling its actions. The company says it could hit markets within three years. ®
