Samsung Confirms 5.5-inch Flexible Smartphone Screen

Samsung has confirmed that it'll debut its 5.5-inch flexible screen for smartphones during CES in January.

Samsung Display, a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics, will showcase a pair of bendable screens at CES that may appear in a new smartphone or TV design, so says company representatives.

The South Korean company will show its 5.5-inch flexible screen intended for smartphone use to attendees, with the display boasting a 1,280x720-pixel HD resolution, as well as a 267 pixel density.

Samsung Display stressed that a flexible display offers deign freedom to consumers. However, the firm said that while its demo screens curve without rending, they don't have the ability to roll up yet.

The company, who was recently named the worldwide leader in the entire cell phone market, is rumored to be integrating its flexible screen into the Galaxy S4.

    C'mon guys think, this pretty much means if you drop your phone nothing is going to happen. No cracked screen.

    Do this with the coming Galaxy Note 3, imagine a 6.3 inch screen you can fold in half.

    I guess that's pretty cool, but I'm not sure about the application. Does anyone really want/need bendy smartphone screens? Isn't at the end of the day flat best?
