Samsung has already stolen the show at the CES 2013 at Las Vegas with a wide variety of trendy gadgets which included smartphones, tablets and even big screen televisions. Adding on, the South Korean giant along with the software giant Microsoft unveiled YOUM flexible display technology to splash the expo.
This can be said as, during the CES keynote session, while Samsung unveiled the flexible display, the officials informed that Microsoft is already in works in making a Windows Phone device that would feature the newly launched display. Furthermore, Microsoft even showed off a prototype of the upcoming device during CES 2013.
Eric Rudder, the chief technical strategy officer of Microsoft revealed the prototype on the show and informed "Some companies talk about reality distortion fields - we built one,". As of now the technology is in the developing stage but it will hit the market really soon. With the flexible display technology's display mechanism, switching between tablets and smartphones would be much easier which requires just folding and unfolding it.
Moreover, Samsung also announced its new eight-core Exynos 5 "Octa" chip during the presentation. Based on the Cortex A15 architecture, Samsung claimed the 28-nanometer-process chip offers twice the 3D gaming performance of any other mobile processor currently available.
Users can look forward to more details from Samsung and Microsoft when the Windows phone device hits the stores soon. This is really an inspiration for rivals like Apple to come up with some unique elements to retain their position in the market.
