Xiaomi smartphone with a ‘bendable display’ concept video leaked

When talking about smartphone innovations, fold-able or bendable displays almost always get a mention. A number of companies are already working on concept devices with foldable displays, and  one such company could be Xiaomi. A couple of photos and a short video clip has surfaced online that shows a bendable display in action and MIUI running on it.
This Xiaomi concept display was spotted on Baidu and it can apparently be bent backwards, forwards, left and right, GizmoChina reports. The 35-second video clip shows a display bent forwards, and we get a glimpse at what MIUI would look like on such a display. Before you get all excited though, we should warn you that this could be a concept or an ardent fan’s fantasy. After all, the photos or video don’t show any electronic components behind the display that are required to connect to a working smartphone. It just feels too good to be true, and we advise you to take it with the proverbial pinch of salt. There are rumors that the upcoming Mi Note 2 will flaunt a curved display, but it is unlikely to be anything like these photos. Instead, the display should be something close to what we see on Samsung’s Galaxy S7 edge and Galaxy Note 7.

LG’s first flexible OLED phone due before the year is out

LG plans to launch a flexible OLED smartphone before the end of the year, the company’s VP of mobile has confirmed, though it’s unclear to what extent the work-in-progress handset will actually flex. The OLED panel in question is the handiwork of LG Display according to VP of LG mobile Yoon Bu-hyun, the WSJ  reports, with the proposed device set to launch sometime in Q4. LG Display’s work on flexible OLEDs has been underway for some time, though the company’s efforts have perhaps been overshadowed somewhat by rival Samsung’s YOUM development. Last year, according to a Korea Times report, LG Display was preparing for

Bing Apps for Windows 8 get major updates

Late least year, Microsoft rolled out a half dozen Bing Apps for Windows 8 users, each one focused on a specific category, such as travel and sports. The apps were designed to offer “immersive vertical experiences,” and now, about six months later, a big line of updates for them is being pushed out. Users can grab the updates now by heading into the Windows Store and selecting the updates notification.
Flexible displays are the Future of IT Industry! A part from 4k and smart home appliances, the CES 2013 saw a lot of attention being drawn towards bendable, flexible displays. The elasticised display idea isn’t something new as we have seen hoards of device concepts being crafted around flexible, bendable and even foldable displays. These concept devices give us a futuristic feel, be it a flexible phone to be worn around the wrist or a phone that opens up to turn into a tablet or PSP-like device. But how far is this future? Nokia has been toying with the idea ever since we remember. The technology sounds very fascinating and the possibilities and the extent to which bendable displays could be used are vast and leave us spellbound. However, these have always been concepts and we haven’t seen any device materialise in the real world. There have been several technologies that were conceived in these years and all have been put to their practical use. But the bendable d
