When will we see mainstream smartphones with flexible displays? Nobody knows for sure, but that isn't stopping Sharp from making us all drool over its paper-thin flexible OLED display it's showing off at CES 2013.
All we know about Sharp's bendy display is that it measures 3.4-inches diagonally and is co-developed by Sharp and Semiconductor Energy Laboratory. That, and a display this waifish is going to make phones very, very light.
We've no idea what pixel resolution the display has, how dense the pixels are, how much the thing costs or even when it'll be released — and honestly we don't care because the display looks be-yoo-tee-ful.
Looking at this little flexible screen is akin to looking into the future. 10 years from now, we'll all be wearing our smartphones on our wrists like watches and slipping them into our back pockets and sitting on them without a single worry it'll crack.
We can't have one anytime soon, but since we're drooling, you might as well, too. Check down below for our hands-on video.
