Samsung Transparent and Flexible TabletJungle Buzz — By Alex Destroyz on December 7, 2011 at 8:53 pm
Samsung has released a concept video of a future tablet device that uses a flexible screen.
Samsung Mobile Display, whom are responsible for the video, posted the new concept video on Youtube. The video is specifically of Samsung Flexible AMOLED.
In the clip the flexible screen that looks like a transparent tablet is seen being used as a video chat system, an e-reader, a camera,, and an interpreter. The flexible tablet is also using augmented reality.
Augmented reality is software that uses a direct feed through a camera, in real-time, observing the real-world environment, where computer generated sensors input sound, graphics, video, or global positioning system (GPS) data.
Although the video is a concept of a future tablet, Samsung has stated, according to Ubergizmo, that they intend to produce the Samsung Galaxy Skin in 2012. This one has the form factor of a conventional smartphone, but will have a flexible screen.
The Samsung Galaxy Skin will have the same width as the Galaxy S2, but it will be double the length, when unfolded. The former will reportedly measure 221mm x 67mm x 8 mm and will be available with either 16GB and 32GB capacities.
