Samsung is continuously surprising us with their products and patents. The latest news from Samsung is the latest patent for a smartphone device which is similar to a bracelet. More than that, we already see a similar concept from Philips, the Philips Fluid phone. Now, there is no doubt that Samsung is developing their flexible technology. If we take a look back at Samsung Gear S and Galaxy S6 Edge we could observe an evolution of their flexible display technology.
The new patent is awarded and like the image patent shows, this new device is a smartphone that could be worn on our wrist. Actually this future device could simplify our busy life by wearing the device on the hand and forget about the full pockets and the breaking display glass.
Samsung patent is using the OLED technology, a technology with a huge potential at the moment. OLED displays are very flexible and are not breaking like a normal actual display. OLED technology brings us the flexibility that we all need and dream at.

Sharp Ultra-HD IGZO display will have a 2160×3840 pixel resolution and will be introduced on the production line in 2016. The Sharp display will be used for the first time on the Chinese market, for Chinese smartphones.
Also, Samsung could release this year in August a new type of display, for the Note 5 device. The new Samsung display will be a 5.9 inches display and will have a 2160×3840 pixel resolution. Compared to the Sharp display, the new Samsung screen will have only 700 PPI.
