The iFlex Smartphone is Meant to be Bent

Accidentally breaking your mobile phone in half could become a thing of the past if the iFlex smartphone goes from concept to reality. The iFlex was created by Christian de Poorter of the Milan-based De Poorter Designs. The phone, as you may be able to tell, was meant to be bent.

Indeed, the main draw behind the iFlex smartphone is that it can be bent in ways that would break a normal phone. The flexible phone is made out of aluminum, nylon and bendable silicon. The bendy display allows you to do more with your phone on the app front.

A makeup palette app and a name tag app are just two of the things De Poorter Designs dreamed up for the iFlex smartphone. Tech companies are always looking for ways to set their smartphones apart from the pack. Don't be shocked if bendable phones are the next frontier explored by smartphone makers.
