The bendable Samsung phone, it’s like the Loch Ness Monster. Rumored with vague indications that it might exist. Tech site, LetsGoDigital is now adding to the sightings of the elusive bendable Samsung phone with an official certification from South Korea. According to LetsGoDigital, the Korean Research Institute National Radio Research Agency of the Korea Communications Commission approved the device with model number SM-G888N0. Some are calling the device the Samsung Galaxy X.
LetsGoDigital also points to remarks made by Samsung Mobile CEO Dongjin Koh:
As a head of the company, I can say that our goal is to introduce a folding smartphone next year. Once the last problems have been overcome, we will launch the product, said Dongjin Koh , CEO of Samsung Mobile.
LetsGoDigital is also speculating that the bendable Samsung phone is likely going to remain a South Korean device to start with. Back in 2013, Samsung presented its idea of flexible, bendable and rollable screens at CES 2013. Some of that presentation can be watched on the YouTube Video below.
Since CES 2013, Samsung has been a driving force with displays that are curved. Many of Samsung’s models have had curved glass displays with added functionality on the edges. It will be interesting to finally see the product of years of research and development into bendable display technology. It will also be interesting to see what sort of applications, besides phones, Samsung will implement this into. Don’t be surprised to see the likes of Apple, Google, LG, and others start leaking information on bendable displays. I’m certain Samsung isn’t the only one doing heavy R&D on this tech.
