Lenovo, Samsung, LG, and Xiaomi are all reportedly working on bringing bendable phone screens to the public. We’ve seen some of these prototypes in-person, as well as in leaks online, and today we’re getting a look at Xiaomi’s idea for a bendable touchscreen. A 30-second video put online this past week seems to suggest Xiaomi created a real, tangible bendable phone IRL that also responds to touch. We don’t see the user bend it in multiple directions but it does seem to be bent in the person’s hand. We don’t have any details about a release or the phone itself.

Xiaomi, a major Chinese manufacturer, is making a cardboard-thin smartphone that either comes in a unique shape or has a bendable touch screen, according to The Verge.

Recently, a 30-second video put online this past week has astounded the tech world as it seemingly suggest that Xiaomi created a real, bendable touch phone IRL.

According to the Verge, the video clip also shows the device running Xiaomi's latest MIUI 8 software while it is being operated by a user.

However, there are no details about the smartphone yet or any release date either. The mentioned video shows an incredibly thin prototype phone with a flexible screen.

What is clear, for now, is that the display is a prototype product and uses the China's Smartphone and home appliance maker's latest software.

Xiaomi seems to have created an almost entirely flat phone prototype that sits in the palm of the hand, as reported by the Daily Mail.

A clip posted on video-sharing site Youku shows a person scrolling through apps on the flexible screen. The screen is shown to be curved to fit into the user's hand.

However, it is not clear from the video how exactly the screen is powered and the company has so far not released any further details on the prototype or even confirmed its existence.

A number of tech giants have been purportedly working on flexible displays for some time. Many are surprised that a Chinese brand initially appears to have made a mobile smartphone with an actual tangible bendable touch screen.

In the ever growing technology, the innovation of products needs to be improved and updated in order to maintain its competitive edge in the tech industry.

Both LG and Samsung are also believed to be working on flexible displays.

Earlier this year, Samsung may release two bendable OLED screen smartphones next year. One handset is said to fold in half, while another has a 5-inch display that can expand into an 8-inch screen, as further reported by The Verge.
