Samsung may produce flexible smartphone one day

The Korean maker of smartphones Samsung has received a rather interesting patent for a flexible smartphone. While such a device is still far away, the patent itself may be hinting of such a device in the works.

More specifically the patent covers a rugged smartphone with a flexible display. In addition the device is expected to have protection along its sides and what’s even more interesting – the phone appears to be entirely flexible to a certain extent, of course. The preliminary information also states the device is designed for active people who will be able to clip on the phone on a user’s clothing thus eliminating the need for special cases or armbands thanks to special integrated sections inside the phone chassis.

Currently Samsung offers the “Active” line of rugged smartphones with the latest smartphone in the line being the widely discussed and still unconfirmed Galaxy S6 Active. Since smartphone makers are moving towards offering devices with flexible displays maybe someday, not far from now, we will see the first flexible Active smartphone and this patent may turn out to be the first step towards such a device.
