Samsung Unveils Flexible Android Smartphone
« on: September 23, 2011, 12:47:40 PM »
holy crap!  Daddy wants one of these bad boys!   looks awesome!

Think a flexible smartphone is just science fiction? You might have to think again, thanks to Samsung. The Korean company recently unveiled Galaxy Skin, an Android smartphone that can take on different shapes and take on even hammer blows, set to begin production in 2012 Q2 with murmurings of a release sometime thereafter.

So aside from its flexible form, what specs can Galaxy Skin boastof? For starters, it will have a flexible 4″ AMOLED display (800480) made of plastic polyimide substrate. Samsung already confirmed that they have started production of such screens. This form of AMOLED technology consumes less energy but still delivers good screen brightness compared to the normal Samsung AMOLED screens.

Other known specs of Galaxy Skin include 1 GB RAM; 1.2 GHz processor; 8 MP rear camera and VGA front camera with auto focus, self-portrait, stop motion, action shot, and Panorama shots; and 1500 mAh battery. Connectivity-wise, it has Bluetooth 3.0, USB 2.0, and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n features. It will reportedly run on Android Jellybean (the next Google OS version after Ice Cream Sandwich), but there are speculations that Google will make a special version for it, namely Android Flexy.

How cool is this? It looks very nice but let's see how well it plays out upon release. This will give Apple a run for their money with them trying to push the shuffle as a watch/ipod
Someone told me I'm weird, yet again they hunt defenseless animals as a hobby.
