New Samsung Galaxy Skin concept images show off flex appeal
We’ve just seen the concept images for the Galaxy Skin smartphone – and if Samsung can pull it off it’s going to be one exciting gadget. Or make that several exciting gadgets in one. To reference popular culture – it’s like a real-life Transformer phone!
Utilising Samsung’s AMOLED screen technology it’ll bring functionality and flexibility to the mobile market. Capable of high def video, the Galaxy Skin will feature an 800 x 480 screen resolution and run on a 1GHz processor with the Google Android platform.
In the mock-up scenes we get to see the 8mm slimline phone posing in a variety of mutated states never before dreamt of. The pictures reveal the Galaxy Skin handset will be stretched to four inches, able to wrap around a one-inch pipe and be folded, twisted and positioned for use as a desk clock or mini media player amongst a range of other intriguing forms. It also manages to pack in an 8MP camera at the rear and a front-facing VGA shooter and can even be used as a video projector.
We could see the Samsung Galaxy Skin as the smartphone of choice for Marvel’s Mr. Fantastic – it’s truly the work of sci-fi! Exciting times for Samsung who have just announced 3-million sales of its Galaxy S II smartphone in just 55 days.
