LG gets patent for Flexible Hybrid Phone-Watch Device

April 12, 2015: LG Electronics name is now included in the list of tech giants like Apple and Samsung for patenting a technology for flexible smartphone that could be used in connection with an attachable wristband accessory. Last week, US Patent and Trademark Office granted a Design Patent No.D726,140 to LG for phone-watch hybrid flexible device.
The images on the design patent shows a slate flexible smartphone that curves backwards on the top and bottom. Although, there is no clear explanation in patent from LG on how the straight smartphone would be able to bend and stick to bracelet like accessory.
Samsung in a bid to test it's flexible smartphone technology has introduced the curve display this year in Galaxy Edge while Apple is no behind, the company already own a patent for curved wide display based smartwatch. 
Ambitious design patents not always turns into reality but it will be interesting to watch if LG can able to make this concept a reality, which could make LG a serious competitor against it's archrivals.
