Flexible screen smartphone concept unveiled

Extreme smartphone concept

The WaView caught our attention immediately because we could not exactly pin down what it was at first glance. The smartphone looks like a flexible tablet and lamp, but could that be the case? According to YankoDesign, this smartphone “serenades as a lampshade (charging cradle) when not in use. The design explores the usage of flexible LED screen to the hilt. Moreover the screen is a tad bit exaggerated to mimic a curvy tablet.”

We are seeing a variety of smartphone concepts hit the market, many of which are flexible and rely on nanotechnologies, a promising future for the devices. We are also seeing concepts that are multi-functional and more complex rather than the Apple concept of streamlining and simplifying everything – could this be the wave of the next generation of smartphones?
