For a long time we have been witnessing different prototypes and concept designs of the Flexible Smartphones.

We have seen them evolve and dissolve, both. However the ReFlex prototype, from the academics of Queen’s University in Canada is one of the first designs that we can expect to be a part of Smartphones in the near future.

ReFlex is built with the help of embedded technology that can act and detect when the screen is being bent by the end-user.

The 720p LG flexible OLED display has been kitted out with a haptic actuator.

The actuator works with the help of underlying operating system when a bend has been detected.

The ReFlex has a specific system that will perform its functions after the device has been bent.

ReFlex has been made after a lot of efforts and brainstorming. It will have lot of benefits and will prove to be a really good addition in the Smartphones.

There is a separate set of sensors that are situated behind the integrated LG display.

The sensors will be able to detect the force of the bend, and therefore trigger the OS or a running app to act accordingly.

We have seen a number of companies dealing with a curved smartphone.

However, ReFlex seems like the first solution to this long awaited feature.
