@Reaso2000 I wonder if Apple will come up with something similar. I think it looks v. cool!
Marguerite Reardon1/9/2013 6:32:45 PM
Ok folks Josh and James are going to get some cool pics of the flexible display and I will hang out a little bit to facilitate a chat for those who remain.

I'm confused. Why does Apple need to counter this?
Marguerite Reardon1/9/2013 6:33:10 PM
@Shawn Because they are Samsung's chief competitor in mobile devices.

octa is stunning
Reaso20001/9/2013 6:34:20 PM
They will have to. These flexxy displays are the Holy Grail answer to displays breaking when dropped
Alex Zwart1/9/2013 6:34:24 PM
Will you be able to actually hold and bend the devices yourselves?
JM1/9/2013 6:34:27 PM
just waiting for the new display hands on by CNETplease give us more info about it
Marguerite Reardon1/9/2013 6:34:31 PM
@s.s balaji I think it looks pretty cool too. It's crazy how advanced these mobile processors have become. They truly are turning these devices into something as powerful as a laptop.
JM1/9/2013 6:34:32 PM
Yay! good keynote for mobile fans!
Mike1/9/2013 6:34:51 PM
No phone with fingerprint technology....
Marguerite Reardon1/9/2013 6:35:06 PM
@Alex I am not at the event, but I think Josh is hoping to get his hands on the flex screen. I cant wait to see the pics they get. So stay tuned for a slideshow!

Here is the CNET story on the news of the new display: ces.cnet.com

I don't think anyone expects to see truly flexible displays in products this year. But what about unbreakable plastic substrate OLED displays? Still on track for 2013 H2? Disappointed not to hear any mention of that.

No Galaxy SIV :'(
Marguerite Reardon1/9/2013 6:38:14 PM
@Beau I am sure you aren't the only disappointed fan of the Galaxy line of products. Maybe they'll announce something at Mobile World Congress next month.
S.S Balaji1/9/2013 6:38:22 PM
@Marguerite Reardon if samsung gets the power saving part right just like they mentioned then we can safely assume the cpu crown for 2013 goes to samsung
Marguerite Reardon1/9/2013 6:38:57 PM
@S.S. Balaji It does look like it will be tough to beat!
Reaso20001/9/2013 6:39:00 PM
Almost every iPhone Gorilla Glass display will break at some point. These flexxy displays will prevent that.
Marguerite Reardon1/9/2013 6:39:55 PM
Feel free to send in your questions and comments. I'm going to hangout on the live blog a little while longer to keep the discussion going. Josh and James are off getting some hands on time with flexible display!
knect1/9/2013 6:41:18 PM
Pretty cool, and excited to see what Apple comes out with to counter. Samsung and Apple fan here.
Marguerite Reardon1/9/2013 6:43:25 PM
Ok folks. I guess it's time to leave you. Stay tuned to CNET for photo galleries from the keynote and for photos from Josh and James of the new announced products from the Samsung keynote.
