Nick Trumbo imagined a Samsung phone that’s based on new OLED screen technologies and the result was the Samsung Flip concept, seen below. This one is a device that’s able to fold and bend and it comes with a wrap around screen, plus a very interesting interface, that looks more modern than any TouchWiz version so far.

The screen is wrapped around the bottom of the phone, where the notification area is placed, in order to get rid of clutter and keep the notification bar off the main screen. The Samsung Flip becomes an entirely different device when you flip it, depending on what your use for it is. Also, the UI changes depending on the phone positions, so for example there’s a special layout for videocalling, one for listening to music, playing back video or simply using the handset as a watch and photo frame.

You can also personalize the cover of the Samsung concept phone when it’s bended and as you can see this folding aspect allows you to keep the device attached to your belt or to a strap, as shown by the young ladies below. You can also keep recording video even if the phone is folded and it will actually keep it more steady for excellent video capture. Add a dual core 2GHz CPU to this device, Android 4.0, 16GB of memory and an 8MP camera like the one on the Galaxy Note and I’m sold!
