Flexible smartphones could indeed debut in 2013, and the first offering would come from South Korean electronics giant Samsung.
Its already know fact that a host of mobile hardware companies like Sony, Nokia, LG, and Phillips are also working on the flexible smartphones.
BBC reports that Samsung will most likely be the first electronics manufacturer to launch such a device. There is no word on whether we could be seeing flexible screen technology on the next Galaxy S or Galaxy Note smartphone, or whether Samsung will introduce a new line of Galaxy ‘Flexible’smartphones.
Samsung has already repoted stating that its flexible displays will be “foldable, rollable, wearable and more, [and] will allow for a high degree of durability through their use of a plastic substrate that is thinner, lighter and more flexible than… conventional LCD technology.”
