Last year, when we saw the Samsung's flexible OLED displays under the brand "YOUM" we've been waiting for an official reveal of actual products featuring this technology. Today at the CES 2013, Samsung's executives has officially showed off some live prototype devices with flexible panels during the CES keynote, using YOUM panels and plastic, these devices can bend easily and become unbreakable.

One of the possible uses for a flexible display panel is on a tablet that can be folded in half, thus becoming a smartphone that one can fit in their pocket. As you can see on the Photo below... This device is a concept of a future YOUM GALAXY smartphone (in the left) and future YOUM GALAXY Tab (in the right).

Another way to take advantage of this technology is to have a smartphone with a screen extending to the sides where notifications can be displayed even when the handset is lying down on a flat surface.


Of course, these are merely possibilities rather than practical real-world applications of the Youm flexible screens. But since we know that this innovative tech is almost ready for prime time, it will be interesting to see what kind of smartphones and tablets Samsung and other OEMs might implement bendable screens in.
