Videos like The Next Galaxy released by Samsung doesn’t offer a clear design for Galaxy S6 and could be made just to arouse the public interest for a new product.

This way, Samsung Norway, posted some render concepts based on the most interesting rumors for the next Galaxy S6. One of these posted concepts is a device with three sides, actually being a strange device. The most probably, Galaxy S6 will be a smartphone that will have a dual-side rounded display similar to Galaxy Note EDGE.

Another concept posted by Samsung Norway is the concept presented at CES, the transparent device that will be used by Tony Stark crew in the next Avengers movie. This could be a joke or could be a real device? The transparent display has been released and is looking great!

The 3rd concept presented is like a soap, in my opinion. It has an egg-shaped display and from the back comes two stereo speakers that could offer a high quality stereo sound.

About the display, there aren’t specification or concrete pictures, but could be an EDGE variant. Samsung seems to prepare the international market for Mobile World Congress from March 2015 where rumors said that will be released two Samsung Galaxy devices: Galaxy S6 and Galaxy Round 2.
Both devices could feature a flexible display or even a curve display. The S6 will have the right side curved like the Galaxy Note Edge and the Galaxy Round 2 will be probably like the first Samsung Round but probably more flexible.
Anyway the picture hashtag say that The Next Galaxy will be released soon.

With the last important technology congress from Las Vegas, CES, the mobile phone news, prototypes and products excited people around the world with different devices evolved and sophisticated. Has been released the LG G Flex 2, the fastest smartphone on the actual market, with a big curve display and the ability of the back cover to be auto-repaired. From CES to our days appeared a lot of concepts and rumors about the smartphone future like the Galaxy S6 device with a metal body and a curve display or the Galaxy S6 EDGE or Dual EDGE and even the LG G 4 smartphone, even it’s a small step for LG to launch another device after the LG G Flex 2 and a not so good idea to release a high-tech device in less than two months.

At the moment, it can observe a high development of flexible display technology on the mobile market and the important display producers continuously develop most flexible devices and displays. The 2015 starts with the LG G Flex 2 a smartphone with the ability to be bent and to come back in its original form without any damages at the internal components or display. G Flex 2 has a High-resolution P-OLED flexible display that’s 1080p powered by a faster Qualcomm Snapdragon processor  with 3 GB of RAM, together packed with the latest Android OS, Android 5.0 Lollipop makes LG the fastest smartphone on the 2015 market.

Another expectation for MWC 2015 is the Samsung device who makes furors on the internet with many 3D concepts and articles, Samsung Galaxy S6. Galaxy S6 rumors are that will feature a flexible display more exactly will be like the Galaxy Note EDGE, with an EDGE side or both EDGE sides which could be difficult to protect from scratches. The EDGE Samsung display is designed to read notifications and information like weather or other small device updates. Galaxy S6 seems to ditch the Qualcomm Snapdragon processors for its Exynos 7420 chipset, a chipset which is designed for computation performance but with a low graphic performance compared to Qualcomm chipsets. Galaxy S6 will have a metal casing covered with glass at the back and front. The Flexible display will be an AMOLED or SUPER-AMOLED flexible plastic substrate.

Also, will feature a huge flexible display, with a Full HD resolution, a 5.7-inch display. Galaxy Round 2 will include a 13 MP main camera and a 2 MP secondary with a 32 GB internal storage.  All features are just rumors because Samsung hasn’t announced anything about that but could be the first flexible display smartphone running Tizen OS.

The best ever flexible display smartphone concept

February 15, 2015 by Laur | 0 comments

Do you agree with flexible display devices? A flexible display device si that device that can be flexed or rolled and after that can function as nothing happens. This is the future phone device that the market want. An unbreakable display, a high-end device and top configuration. This will be our bendable device in maximum 5 years, a device that can be kept in our pockets or in our hands like a bracelet. If you remember, a nice concept for the moment, the Philips Fluid Phone, is a future design but I’m sure, everybody’s wishing one.

Full bendable smartphone
The concept that I will present today comes from Egypt and is made by Omar Atef. He imagined the future smartphone that it’s able to totally flex and bend. The amazing concept combines the Material designed with the UI. A new thing in Omar’s concept is that the phone hasn’t physical buttons, all of them are virtual.The green UI from the designer photo gives a fresh air to the phone, actually, I can say is for young people. This shrinkable phone concept is featuring a huge camera with dual LED system, and it can be bended until the dimensions of a classic Credit Card.

Full bendable smartphone
On the top of the flexible display, we could find the stereo speakers, designed for a high-quality sound, as on the back they are, above the main camera. The phone pictures show us that is a thin device with less than 5 mm thinness.
Also, after how it look, this device could be an Android phone.
If this concept will become reality in one day, it will be more than sure a real success.
