It’s only a matter of time before foldable smartphones and smartwatches merge into a single device, like this bendable Samsung Galaxy creation you see above by Lets Go Digital.

“Due to the flexible design, the device will tend to automatically roll up again. To prevent this, you can lock this Samsung bendable phone, for this a narrow slider has been fitted on the back that you can operate with your index finger. When the user pushes it down, the smartphone can be used in the unfolded position, and therefore no longer automatically fold back to the curved position,” reports Lets Go Digital.
