A very interesting project that could bring a new form factor on the market but which, to be honest, must be considered with due caution. It is, in fact, only a prototype created by the technology giant to showcase its new ones screen OLED which, optimistically speaking, could also be applied to devices with “less conventional” shapes.

This doesn’t mean that the device will arrive on the market (it’s still too early to say) but it is a way to show the world the potential of these screens and what future applications could be.

How the Samsung Cling Band works

Clearly, since it is exclusively a prototype, there is very little information about it and, in addition to the OLED screen, we know that on the back there is a camera (with unknown technical specifications) and various sensors for monitoring vital parameters, such as heart rate, i blood oxygen levels and probably other detections (active only in smartwatch mode).

In addition to this, always on the back, the device also presents a kind of “groove” with many small grooves to use to flex the phone and make it stay in position, with the possibility of hooking it to the wrist like a hi-tech bracelet.
