Curved, but don’t call it flexible, Samsung just introduced exclusively in Korea its new flagship phone, Galaxy Round. Constructed with a glass OLED display, the phone is dipped in the middle to fit the contours of a person’s face and guess what else, it gently rocks when you place it on a flat surface!
Other than bragging rights of being the first to market with this novelty phone design, Samsung’s Galaxy Round doesn’t have much else going for it, but it is definitely a step in the right direction of incorporating flexible glass in mobile devices.
Back in May, other big shot mobile companies like Apple and LG were in discussions and allocated funds to the research and development of OLED glass, or flexible glass, in mobile phones but no one has released a successful device yet.
Not only to be implemented on mobile phones, OLED flexible glass is in the works for wrap-around ‘slap’ watches and TVs. In fact, just recently, LG introduced its OLED TV.
Leaders in IT asset management and ITAD have little to worry about with these unique flexible displayed. OLED lighting contains no mercury, eliminating the disposal and pollution problems associated with fluorescent lighting,” according to OLED Works. However, until the first OLED flexible glass display is presented to consumers, a modified mobile asset disposition process is difficult to predict.
