Forget touch screens, hello convenience! Samsung plans to release new OLED technology in late 2012, with new flexible screen cellular phones. The phone will be approximately a 7-inch screen, but will be able to roll up when you are not using it.
This technology was first addressed at the CES tech show last year by Samsung. The new OLED technology will introduce a new era of cell phone convenience, in that the phone will be bendable, minimizing the risk for phone damage. Some examples demonstrated were folding the phone into a bracelet to wear or a media stand. Not only will cracked and broken screens be avoided, but this reduces the risk for cell phone damage that usually occurs when one drops their device. Samsung said the new phone could be out as early as the end of 2012.
