LG are going to be producing displays that are thin enough and strong enough to curve, producing phones with interesting new shapes. Perhaps even a banana-shaped handset. Sadly they’ve already been beaten to the punch by Samsung, who’ve launched the Galaxy Round this morning.
They’ll be curved but rigid and, in theory, would fit the contour of your face better. How will this make the user experience any better? Well, we’re not quite sure. Imagine trying to draw on a plastic plate.
Whilst not bendable, the phones are expected to flex if they’re sat on. The thin screens could also mean fold-out screens or the ability to create stylish handsets unlike anything currently available.
Oh, and if you’re wondering what I’m talking about with all that banana phone stuff, check here.
