Imagine a time when once you’re done talking on your cellphone you can just fold it up and keep it your pocket. Well “it’s about time”! It’s not science fiction anymore; very soon it will become part of everyday life. The phone is called Samsung Skin. It’s still in prototype stage but will very soon change the way we use our phones.
This is made possible with the use of Samsung’s flexible and foldable AMOLED display technology. This concept has taken the foldable display and integrated it into a mobile device, allowing the screen to fold. The phone is made up of two AMOLED panels, a protective glass cover, a module case made of silicone rubber.
This phone has a 1.2 GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, 8MP camera, will run the latest Android and of course our ‘back from the future’ high-resolution 7 inch AMOLED screen. The Samsung Skin boasts off many new features not found in high end phones like an in-built projector. Though these specs are nothing new in todays market, all these features in a foldable phone sure is. Samsung conducted stress tests on the phone and found that the display can be folded 100,000 times before a 6% decrease in brightness was noticed. Apparently this decrease in brightness is barely recognized by the human eye.
This is a very interesting technology and I am fascinated about how the device will actually perform. The online world states that the futuristic smartphone will be available in the consumer market in the first quarter of 2012. Eagerly waiting.
