Samsung Galaxy Skin Flexible Phone Confirmed for 2012 Roll Out

September 29, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Just a few days ago, Samsung surprised everyone with their flexible smartphone –the Galaxy Skin. We saw that Sammy fans were all excited and have been waiting to play with the flexi-device ever since. The latest is that the wonder phone will be ready for launch in 2012.

The most vital feature of the device is its flexible display. The Android handset comes with a 4-inch WVGA Super AMOLED screen. The new display technology with low energy consumption produces more brightness and can even withstand the hammer blows too.

Replacing the glass, the plastic polymide substrate is used in the screens that can be rolled or bent into different shapes with no problems in the image quality. The ‘miracle material’- Graphene – is what constitutes the flexible screen.

Scientists at Columbia University explain  Graphene as the strongest material in the world showing that the carbon allotrope is 200 times stronger than structural steel.

The smartphone with 221 x 67 x 8 mm dimensions is similar to Galaxy S II in thickness and width. The device, powered by a 1.2 GHz processor, is supported by 1GB of RAM and 16 or 32 GB internal memory. It comes with dual cameras: an 8-megapixel rear snapper and a VGA in front, 1500 mAh battery, Bluetooth 3.0 and so on.

There is no clue as to which Android version (Jelly Bean or Flexy) will run the device. The phone can be turned into a mouse, wrist-watch or clock, projector and so on.

We are looking forward to see the device in full form by 2012. Meanwhile, scribble down your thoughts on the flexible phone.
