You won’t have to bend over backward to see Samsung’s latest effort in flexible smartphone screens.

Samsung Display, a spin-off from Samsung Electronics, will show off a pair of bendable screens at CES that could one day appear in a radically new smartphone or TV design, according to company representatives.

A flexible display offers deign freedom, Samsung Display told CNET, noting that although its demo screens curve without rending, they don’t yet roll up.

In addition to creating the material that becomes the main substance of the screen, the display company’s labs must also develop the touch panel and cover lens, both components that make a screen a screen.

Samsung has been developing curving screens for some time, showing off smaller display demos, like the 4.5-inch WVGA screen with about a 200 pixel density that CNET saw at CES 2011. With this demo’s increased resolution and screen size, Samsung is clearly keeping pace with today’s smartphone expectations.
