London: South Korean scientists have developed a battery that can be bent and twisted, giving the possibility that future phones could be flexible and hold more capacity, Daily Mail reported Tuesday.
The team from the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, led by Keon Jae Lee, has developed what they call the "high-performance flexible all-solid-state battery", which is stable enough to power our phones.
This opens up the possibility that phones - and other devices such as tablets or e-book readers - could be folded in half or rolled up for easy storage in your pocket, the newspaper said.
