Upcoming Curved, Bendable or Foldable mobiles. Glass displays the end.
WorldWide Tech & Science. Francisco De Jesùs.
Actual flexible smart display technology is taken us to a new age of mobile devices where manufacturers want to get consumers in the next generations of smartphones, tablets, hybrids and maybe small ultrabooks, with the 3 options of curved, bendable or foldable displays.
But, it is not just a matter of blowing bottles or just strike a match. OEMs are taking a phase one by one.
Samsung and LG took the first launch batch of CURVED smartphones/tablet with the ROUND and G FLEX respectively, this last with a differentiation advantage of a self healing back cover.
The interesting thing is whatever Samsung or LG do Apple will make it. Or viceversa. However Apple does not manufacture flexible displays, they will buy it made. Samsung and LG make their own flexible smart display. And that is an advantage for them, their mobile devices will come with unexpected hardware features.
That is great for all us, hoping OEMs will not neglect mobiles OS improvements on the way.
We will see in the first phase CURVED mobiles only with one principal and with two or three wrap side curved flexible display.
This phase of CURVED displays will take no more than one year 2013/ 2014.
In 2015 the first BENDABLE smartphones/tablets will take off for real. Sales will be boosted up for the first who comes out with these mobiles. The Samsung ROUND, LG G Flex and iPhone 6 will be history and the beginning of the end of the Gorilla Glass display smartphones. No more Glass.
Finally 2016/2017 the phase of FOLDABLE mobiles will start. Your smartphone or smartphone/tablet will fold at least in 4 sheets and will fit in your shirt pocket.
