What materials would a bendy/flexible phone be made of?

What materials would a bendy/flexible phone be made of? I can accept the display, but what about the glass screen and the body of the phone, and the battery??

Banana peel, obviously :p

The question is: what do they mean by 'bendy'? Not plane. Oddly shaped. That doesn't exclude 'rigid'. Really bendy devices in mass production I cannot see for a long time. What about the battery, etc?

All bendy displays will be used for, IMHO, is added durability (though I'm unconvinced of the effectiveness of such a venture, since it's the glass which tends to break, not the actual screen).

I think it'll bring about the return of the clamshell phone.
Had a phone where the glass front was intact but the lcd screen went though.

I'm unconvinced the displays will be that bendy.

Really bendable as in the pic the site always digs up don't make sense anyway, the screen would keep moving away as you try to push on it.. Be like trying to write on a single sheet of paper held away from a surface.
