Flexible Samsung Galaxy Skin release a fake says Samsung

Flexible Samsung Galaxy Skin tipped as heading for a 2012 release with a bendable AMOLED display is nothing more than an elaborate and highly detailed fake says Samsung

Reports that Samsung is to follow up its market dominating Samsung Galaxy S II with the world’s first bendable handset in 2012 have be quashed as the Korean tech giant states it is not responsible for the Samsung Galaxy Skin.

Appearing courtesy of reports in the International Business Times the futuristic Android handset was claimed to be heading for an official unveiling next year with a flexible AMOLED display that would allow users to bend the handset around a cylinder just 1-inch in diameter without breaking.

Speaking with T3, however, Samsung has denied such reports stating that the “GALAXY Skin is not related to Samsung Electronics.”

The Samsung spokesperson added: ”It is a project that has been carried out by design students and is just a concept product. Samsung was not involved in the project. The students used the name GALAXY Skin and the Samsung logo in their concept to make it look more like a commercial product.”

Having shown off a variety of mobile sized flexible displays at CES 2011 earlier this year, reports of the mooted Samsung Galaxy Skin being handed a 2012 release date sparked intense excitement in the tech world earlier today.
