Innovation is the thing of the future, which means we need to constantly be
innovating. If we want to improve, then we need to come up with new ideas.
As much as people try and avoid creativity, it is what makes our world go
round most days. Luckily, there are still quite a few creative people out
there, especially the ones who invented the curved smartphone screen.
LG has done it again
We all know LG is a great company and always offers the best stuff, but did
you know they plan to release a curved smartphone screen? According to the
LA Times, the new screen will curve from top to bottom and will be released
soon. The screens have already been put into mass production. It is
expected that the first curved-screen smartphone will come from Samsung at
the beginning of next year, which announced its phone release right before
the LG announcement.
How are they made?
If you want to know how a curved screen is made, it does not involve the
typical smartphone glass. USA Today explains that these screens are made
with plastic to allow for flexibility. The reason why this is so important
is because our society is developing into one where we want more smart
devices. If you were to wear glasses that had smartphone capabilities, for
example, you would want to have them work as curved edges for a sleeker
look. As people want to use smart devices for more things, at work, at
home, and everywhere in between, it will become essential to be able to
manipulate the screen. IHS reported that over 800 million devices will
likely be sold and produced with flexible screens in the next seven years,
so it is an ever-growing market.
Samsung seems hopeful
Samsung, now in direct competition with LG and their flexible screen
technology, is hoping to use this technology to get ahead of the market.
The idea for Samsung is to start mass-producing these new phones at the
beginning of next year, according to the Wall Street Journal. Apparently,
the concept for flexible smartphone screens has been around for quite some
time and has even been produced in prototypes. The real tricky issue is
trying to get it massed produced. LG and Samsung are racing to the finish
line to be the first with the mass-produced technology. Only prototypes are
out for both companies right now.
What is the point?
The reason for the flexible screens is to keep them from breaking so
easily, which is one of the main concerns for buyers looking to get a
smartphone. Glass breaks a lot easier than plastic. On top of that, they
are flexible and easier to carry. They will form to your pocket instead of
getting cracked when you sit down; you can easily roll it up to fit better
in a smaller purse. You will end up with a much more durable and
easier-to-carry-around smartphone device.

Samsung already have theirs on the market.
Honestly, don't see the point until you're looking at 5760 x 1080 screens that are the same height as a 32" 16:9 display. Then I'll be loving it for some properly nice racing game immersion.

It might just be my phone, but the layout of the post makes it look like a really crap poem.
