Samsung to have flexible displays at CES 2013

Flexible screens are interesting for a number of reasons including the ability to have curved designs or possibly even folding smartphones and still have a large screen. The biggest benefit of the flexible smartphone screen is likely to be the ability to resist damage compared to a rigid screen that is prone to breaking when dropped.

CES 2013 kicks off in a few weeks and CNET reports that Samsung Display will be showing off a pair of flexible screens at the show that could appear in smartphone or TV designs.
 
One of the screens is a 5.5-inch flexible unit with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels (267 PPI). The other screen is a much larger 55-inch unit designed specifically for use in TV sets.
 
Designing a smartphone screen that can flex requires more than simply creating the main components of the screen. Researchers for Samsung Display also have to develop a touch panel and screen covering that are flexible as well.

I predict a slap bracelet phone and big screen tvs that ship rolled up like a carpet to save on shipping costs. Optimistic?

I think you just combine 1985 and the future. Slap bracelets? Damn.

I think people in 1985 thought they were living in the future.
