Flexible/bendable/foldable displays look set to become a fairly big deal over the next few years, and again we’re hearing that Samsung is among the manufacturers leading the charge.
This time we’re promised devices with foldable displays, not next year but next, or “2015” if you prefer.
The promise was made at Samsung’s Analyst Day, where the South Koreans talked figures and plans for the future.
In the coming years, Samsung looks forward to “Enabling a Smarter Life” with a number of technological advances.
It goes without saying that we’ll see “Higher Resolution Technology”, but we’re also told to expect “Foldable” displays – that’s in addition to “Curved” and “Bended” screens.
Samsung is of course no stranger to phones with curved displays. To date we’ve had the Google Nexus S and Samsung Galaxy Nexus, and more recently the South Koreans introduced the vertically folded Samsung Galaxy Round.
With truly foldable displays, we can expect devices that essentially fold in half for portability. Indeed, we’ve seen as much in official promo material from Samsung (YouTube).
Of course, such devices will inevitably cost a small fortune when they finally touch down, but at least you’ve got a year-and-a-bit to save up.
Also at Samsung's Analyst Day, Vice Chairman and CEO, Oh-Hyun Kwon, conceded again that there's "room for improvement" on the Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch. Yes, that's, er, one way to put it.
