UPDATE: From what we know Samsung did confirm that they would be making a device with a flexible display but the Galaxy Skin is not real and was actually a concept drawn up by Heyon You. So we will see a flexible display next year by Samsung if plans do not change.
Every year at CES a big concept is flexible displays, but besides a few examples we never see anything actually released until now. Samsung has confirmed by early 2012 we will see a flexible AMOLED display on the Samsun Galaxy Skin.
The official confirmation came during a third-quarter earnings conference call with analyst, with spokesman Robert Yi saying:
The flexible display, we are looking to introduce sometime in 2012, hopefully the earlier part. The application probably will start from the handset side.
A flexible display is a screen that can bend and shape to any shape or form you desire and still keep the color and picture the same. The 4.5” AMOLED display uses plastic polyimide substrate instead of glass, which in itself allows for high flexibility.
This is something Steve Jobs said would not be around for “many, many, years” and now Samsung, Apple’s biggest competitor will be releasing a phone with this next year.
To see these displays in action watch the two videos below from CES 2011:
