The First flexible smartphone has been unveiled. Models Samsung and Huawei are very different from each other as structurally, and price. But, according to the source, they are United by one feature.

It is less rigid, and this means that it is much easier to scratch. In addition, in places bending over time, plastic may be deformed.

But Corning is already working on a protective glass, which can suit for smartphones. This glass will have a thickness of 0.1 mm with minimum bending radius of 5 mm. the Main problem is that the glass must be sufficiently resistant to physical stress, or in the smartphones to use it will be.

unfortunately, even the Corning promises to produce such glass in the near future. To provide the company stated that the material will be ready for the time when flexible smartphones will become more widespread, that is a couple of years.
