Samsung Thinks that their New Flexible Smartphone Design Could Catch On

1AF PA2 - COVER GRAPHIC SAMSUNG PATENT APPLICATION - PATENTLY APPLE REPORT

There's no doubt that Samsung is in search for new smartphone form factors that involve flexible displays. Our Patently Mobile IP blog has an archive dedicated to Samsung's many flexible display inventions. While they've already begun to use flexible displays with their Galaxy Edge line-up, the latest debuting earlier this month, Samsung is definitely planning to rapidly expand their range of devices using flexible displays.

 

Their latest smartphone invention is being targeted at mobile users and more specifically extreme mobile or athletic types. With this new smartphone form factor, users won't have to wear an armband or belt to hold their smartphone in place. The unique frame, which is constructed using a series of individual sections as noted in our cover graphic, allows the frame to flex open enough to grab the athletes clothing firmly while active and then flex open to release the phone when the user is done.
