Samsung to Introduce Smartphone with Bendable Touch Screen in 2012

Samsung is planning to launch a flexible smartphone in 2012, which will come with a bendable AMOLED touch screen.

According to an article on The Telegraph, the Samsung Galaxy Skin will feature a large and bright AMOLED skin which will be able to fold like a wristwatch.

The screen, made up of a plastic polyimide substrate instead of glass, consumes low amounts of energy and is extremely strong.

The phone, developed by Professor Haeseong Jee and Jye Yeon You, has been built using graphene, which is said to be the strongest material on Earth; almost 200 times stronger than steel.

The Galaxy Skin will also feature a 800×480 flexible AMOLED screen, 1 GB of RAM, a 1.2 Ghz processor and a 8MP camera. Users of the device can use it as a wrist watch, mouse or clock. This versatility should make the new product a popular one with a wide variety of people.

Interestingly, Samsung plans to power the phone with Android Jelly Bean, which will be launched after the long awaited Android Ice Cream Sandwich. The device may also be powered by a new version of Android called Android Flexy.
