Samsung to Launch a Bendable Phone in 2018

Having won the war on smartphone bezels (kinda) the world’s biggest phone maker is ready to move on to the next big thing: the bendable display. According to The Indian Express, the first consumer device with this technology has already been certified in South Korea; it’s to be called the Galaxy X and will presumably be some sort of anniversary device for the brand.

Never mind that the original Galaxy was released in 2009, or that battery life is probably going to be terrible for that paper-thin display in the photo directly above. I think the idea is actually to make something that the user can fold and unfold like a newspaper, as demonstrated in this concept video:

Perhaps the battery will be spread out over the entire back of the sheet? No idea, really… We’ll have to wait and see what Samsung is able to deliver next year. Best not to expect a headphone jack in this one, I think. 😉
