Samsung: Our Devices Will Have Folding Displays By 2015

By Jamie Condliffe on at

The future is slowly arriving, with the advent of phones with radically curved screens—but Samsung isn't yet content. In fact, the company insists that the displays of its devices will be foldable by 2015.

Speaking at Samsung's Analyst Day, the company announced that it'll bring fully-foldable screens to the market "some time in 2015". That kind of bendable display will, apparently, find its way into both normal devices like phones and tablets, as well as the new rash of wearable tech, like the firm's Galaxy Gear.

Samsung, it's fair to say, is usually good to its word with this kind of thing. It's long been developing flexible screens, and promises made at CESs past have now started to come good of recent times. Whether the kind of foldable tech shown off in the above video will be with us by 2015, though, remains to be seen—but if it pulls it off, it will feel like living in the future.
