I was even looking forward to the launch of the Lenovo flexible phone at IFA but that didn’t happen. OPPO had also in the past got into the fray of concept phones with flexible display. Now, what is likely a concept phone said to be developed by Xiaomi has leaked, showing the flexible display that bends in all direction.
The Galaxy Note 7 packs in the best screen that you can buy right now. That’s the conclusion of DisplayMate, which is widely recognized for running the most comprehensive set of tests on the latest phones to determine how the display compares against competitors and previous models.
