Samsung tablet concept with flexible display leaks with specs

Samsung-flex-tablet-render

Samsung’s fabled flexible displays are one of the most hotly anticipated technological developments in recent memory, and today MobiLeaks has brought us a leaked concept showing off one such display. As you can see in the picture, this leak is a full render of a new Samsung 10″ tablet, and if thats not enough, the leak came with some specs too. The flexible screen is a full 1080p HD resolution (1920×1080 pixels) and has a front facing 3-megapixel camera. Inside is Samsung’s very own Exynos 5 Octa processor clocked at 1.6 GHz, 2 GB of RAM, an 8000 mAh battery and 16 or 32 GB storage options, expandable via a microSD card slot.

As you can see in the photo, the device bends close to the bottom, revealing a built-in stand. Curiously, the point at which it bends doesn’t seem to be big enough to fit a comfortable QWERTY keyboard, leaving one to question what function Samsung has planned for that part of the screen. Also surprising is the lack of a rear camera, though the thinness of the top half of the tablet is probably to blame for that.

The render definitely leads to a ton of speculation, mostly when can I buy one. Curiously, LG will also be debuting a flexible screen this week and may even get theirs to market before Samsung. Let us know in the comments what you think of the render, and if you’d be interested in owning this tablet.

    Nope, not interested. Sammy don’t tell us it’s a flexible screen and expect us to buy it “just because”. I don’t want bendy, I want roll up, pull out and use. Something similar to whats seen in Minority Report or I, Robot. Bendy is no good to anyone. Prove me wrong, please.

      A big problem with a roll-up design is potential scratching, yellowing and cracking of the display. The solution will require meta-materials not currently available for mass production.

      So don’t buy it, I highly doubt Samsung needs your money. Go tell LG or Apple to make your bendy tablet, instead of complaining about Samsung, at least they’re doing something.

    I like the concept and I really hope Samsung goes with it.
    doesn’t make anyone a fanboy!!!

    I think it would be better to bend the screen halfway like a laptop. So as to save space and make the tablet easier to carry.
