    Default Samsung Youm, a phone display that can literally bend.

    A few exciting things happened at CES this year with gaming stealing most of the headlines. One can’t forget some of the unexpected hardware manufactures like Huawei releasing some really great smartphones either and of course the bigger and curvier Smart TVs being unveiled by the likes of Panasonic and Samsung.



    A smartphone hiding in the shadows at CES, is the Samsung ‘Youm’. The anticipated smartphone which can bend. The first thing you’ll notice if you see the device, is that it’s iconically Samsung. It is around 5 inches, just a tiny bit bigger than the Samsung Galaxy S3 (4.8”). It uses OLED, which is just perfect for a flexible phone, because of the un-breakable bendy plastic it uses instead of glass. The OLED display is already used in current Galaxy S phones made by Samsung, although it uses glass, and not plastic like the Youm.

    The Samsung Youm is able to bend around itself, you can even supposedly roll it up, and the display is also made so that if the screen is bent you can still see your alerts and notifications, they won’t be blocked by any part of the screen bending over itself!



    At the same Samsung address, a new processor was released, which will more than likely appear in the Samsung Youm, as well as other upcoming Samsung phones. The processor is called the ‘Exynos 5 Octa’ and has 8 cores which will offer, according to Stephen Woo, a “level of pure processing power never before seen in a mobile device.” He also mentioned how it would be ideal for heavy duty multitasking and for streaming HD movies. To give you an idea of how potentially powerful this could be, the iPhone 5 has a Dual Core processor, and the recently introduced iPad 4 has a Quad Core processor. This new processor from Samsung also is said to consume two times less power, using ARM’s ‘Big.Little’ project.



    Although the Youm seems like a potential smartphone, no price tags or release dates have been mentioned, and the Youm is more of a concept to show off rather than an actual phone to challenge the likes of Apple with. But it's almost a guarantee the Youm will not be out in 2013.

    I disagree, watch the first video. It shows the usefulness of it.

    The display cannot break; that alone makes the design amazing. But coupled with are a ton of other features that make it even more enticing.
