The good news about this flexible screen is that it is made of plastic substratum, usually called wafer, and it is not a glass. This material makes it thinner and lighter, compared to the glass material used in the common screen manufacturing. This comparison is very significant since in gadget industry, because every single millimeter difference and flimsiness in size is seen as a great achievement. The other gain is that flexible screen technology enables us to fold the screen until its maximum fold capacity without any damage such as broken screen. It is also able to be folded like the way we fold a mattress so that it cut the corner of storage, and is easily brought everywhere. In addition, the application of this screen in smartphone will reduce the battery power consuming and lengthen the battery’s endurance.
However, although the flexible screen technology has been applied, the other parts of the smartphone remain hard. The body and battery are still made of hard materials that are not flexible. The application of this screen will only contribute to the beauty of its appearance instead of its function. Besides, although the screen will not be broken when it is folded, it will be damaged if the phone falls and if it is the screen that is firstly hurled on the ground. Therefore, this upcoming smartphone is not as strong as you imagine.
