Bendable wrist watch slash smartphone? Want.

Would you fancy a smartphone that you could simply bend and twist and wrap it around your wrist like a watch? Of course, you do. Samsung has been teasing us with their futuristic, flexible AMOLED screens, for years on end now, that actually makes our wrist watch-smartphone fantasies come true. However, so far, we have only got just that – teases.

In 2012, though, things might change. According to, Samsung Mobile Display has partnered with a Japanese manufacturer called Ube Kosan to deliver plastic substrate material to the company. Samsung is now expected to to ramp up its production of its fancy AMOLED screens in 2012, with a new 1000 m2 plant to give it a boost.

With the screens going into production so soon, which products do you see it being implemented in? Maybe Galaxy S3? A bendable Galaxy Tab?
