One thing that many in the mobile industry are still trying to improve on is the flexibility quotient of the smartphones. And if latest reports from the mobile industry are to be believed, Panasonic Corp has become one of the first companies to achieve this.
Panasonic Corp has brought to life the final fantasy of probably every phone addict, and that is to be able to wear his/ her smartphone on the wrist, just like a watch. And this has been made possible by the creation of a fold able substrate called the ALIVH-F.
Unlike the usual substrates made of glass resin that are used to make smartphones, the ALIVH-F is unique as it is made of a type of film that encompasses an eight-layer structure, which measures about 0.37 millimeters. Put simply, this means that this newly developed substrate is actually 30 per cent thinner and some 35 per cent lighter than all other substrates being used in the market today to make smartphones.
It is precisely because of these features that Panasonic believes that the ALIVH-F is the substrate of the future, as its unique features will allow mobile makers to create flexible, fold able circuits in wrap-around, watch like designs.
Many in the mobile industry have simply been waiting for such a creation and it is not going to be long, before companies combine this new fold able substrate with a flexible display panel and customized batteries to offer clients smartphones, which would then be inseparable from us!
