Flexible OLED displays are nothing new at this point. Various companies have been seen showing them off at various trade shows over the past few years without ever realizing an actual product that someone might want to buy. In a bid to be first, Royole just announced a very rough-looking model, and now Samsung is finally ready to admit it's developing a bendy phone.
Do you like octa-core processors? How about displays that curve? Or just Samsung in general? If you answered "yes" to any of those questions, then you're going to want to watch Samsung's second CES event, which just so happens to be available now on YouTube.
For the Exynos 5 Octa stuff, jump straight to 12:34. If you're more into the flexible OLED, they show the prototype off at 39:48. If you don't have anything better to do for the next hour, just hit play and enjoy.
Update: There seems to be a "full version" of the event as well.
We've heard quite a bit about Samsung's prototype flexible OLED display over the past couple of years, and it looks like the company is starting to mature the tech, as it showed off the most practical phone design we've seen yet.
Just to get this out of the way up front – this phone is not flexible. It's just using the flexible display inside of a rigid case, so it's no different than current phones in that respect. When it comes to specs, Samsung wouldn't give up details, only telling The Verge that it's "about 5-inches across" with a resolution of "about" 720p.
