Employees of the Taiwan Research Institute of Industrial Technology have developed and demonstrated in the video a prototype of a bent smartphone. It uses a flexible display built on the technology of organic light-emitting diodes (OLED).
One of the main problems in creating folding smartphones with a flexible screen is the fragility of such a device. Developers of the prototype assure that it is as close to a commercial product as possible and is designed for 200,000 openings, which, even if 150 flexions per day are sufficient for about four years of use of the smartphone.
Flexible gadgets in the coming years are planning to release Samsung, Huawei, LG and even Apple. This form factor allows you to equip devices with a large display since during the transfer the device is in a folded state and does not take up much space.
