An extensive report by 9to5Mac, our parent site, explained that OLED technology isn’t ready for prime time yet in big screen TVs, making the prospect of an Apple-branded television set uncertain, to say the least. In mobile, Samsung’s improved OLED displays marketed as Super AMOLED and Super AMOLED Plus have become an important hardware hardware feature setting apart their high-end smartphones (and quite possibly coming to a next-gen Galaxy Tab). Samsung Mobile Display has taken this technology up a notch at CES 2011 where they showed off the flexible AMOLED Displays with electro activity polymer (see the below clip).

The possibilities of this technology inspired designer Heyon You to go about rendering the above concept Samsung Galaxy S phone, the Samsung Galaxy Flexi as he calls it. The designer envisiones a four-inch smartphone with a 800-by-480 pixel resolution flexible display that can fold into a watch-like device. His dream phone also sports a projector and rocks an eight-megapixel camera (why not ten or twelve megapixel?) with 720p video recording.
