We have been hearing talk about flexible screens for your smart phone and other devices, but they have always seemed to be somewhere in the future. But with recent developments, we may be seeing them in some form next year. That is at least according to the rumors which are being reported over the past week. Whether these are accurate or not is for you to decide. The bigger issue is that they are coming. The question is when and we believe that time will be in 2013.
In a Wall Street Journal article and video, Samsung is committed to producing smart phones next year with flexible screens. That will mean a screen made of plastic and not the current glass touch screens we are used to. It is reported that these flexible screens will be unbreakable, but we know that as plastic ages, it does tend to become more brittle. But, it will make your smart phone much lighter and even better, it will be flexible. That is the future.
Flexible screens will make your phone smaller as well which is a great benefit. It can then be expanded to a much larger size or larger that we are seeing today. It creates lots of potential. If you thing about the ability to unroll your smart phone for use and then rolling the phone back up to make it compact, you begin to see the potential of flexible screens. The ability to reduce the size of your 4 inch smart phone to half that size when carry it makes things far more portable than they are today. And that is what we want to see. Do you believe we are going to see flexible screens in 2013?
We have been seeing these for a while and Samsung presented them at CES in 2011, so they are actively working on them.
Much of the speculation is based on an interview which the Wall Street Journal is reporting and we are including it here for you to decide for yourself.
