Forget futuristic smartphones with bendable, foldable or rollable displays, and try to imagine one sporting an entirely stretchable OLED screen.
5.8, 5.15, 4.7. What do all these numbers mean? Well, plenty when it comes to a wraparound screen for the iPhone 8. Let's plot this out.

It looks like Apple’s best way of teasing the future to all of us is with the patent. If you want to dread and fight all about it, well, keep tabs on Samsung. We first saw a piece of Apple’s future (possibly in tune with an iPhone, but applicable to any form factor) back in March 2013 with a patent application regarding a device with a wraparound, flexible display.
Now, within a burst of 28 approved patents from the Patent and Trademark Office, we see that the all-around display device patent is among them. Patent #9,146,590 features the following claim:
I don’t know what you do for a living and I don’t know where you do it. But while you might be using your phones and tablets to help you do a part of your work, you likely still have something to do with a computer. A box with a screen attached to it, plus a keyboard and mouse. You know, one of those things.
Indeed, white collar work has and will increasingly rely on people not in an office. Okay, sure, that’s high-minded and all that, but what I really want to know is whether or not you’re going to use your phone for every single thing in your damn life. [...]
With a curved chassis and self-healing skin, LG's new phablet isn't just big; it's futuristic. Find out just how futuristic in our LG G Flex review!
We told you flexible screens and batteries didn't mean "flexible phones" -- at least not yet.
