Flexible Technology and Foldable Smartphone


Flexible/ Foldable/ Bendable Smartphone and Technology behind it

Flexible Smartphones and their release date are one of the most trending topics nowadays.And all Big companies like Samsung, Nokia, Sony, and LG and their researcher are working and patenting their research and invention regularly related to Flexible Technology.So we at Andro Root have prepared a nice and long post to share information and little bit knowledge in the same field.Today in this post we will talk about Flexible Smartphone and technology behind it.

Flexible Technology and Flexible Electronics:-

Flexible technology is not a very old technique but it has recently expanded to a plethora of products. Basically, Flexible technology is a combination of different type of technology with an added quality which is Flexibility.So as electronics with flexibility is known as Flexible Electronics. Flexible electronics is a technology for assembling electronic circuits by mounting electronic devices on flexible plastic substrates, such as polyimide, PEEK or transparent conductive polyester film. Additionally, flex circuits can be screen printed silver circuits on polyester. Flexible electronic assemblies may be manufactured using identical components used for rigid printed circuit boards, allowing the board to conform to the desired shape, or to flex during its use. An alternative approach to flexible electronics suggests various etching techniques to thin down the traditional silicon substrate to few tens of micrometers to gain reasonable flexibility, referred to as flexible silicon (~ 5 mm bending radius).This technology is having many benefits like their light weight, favorable dielectric properties, robust, high circuit density and conformable nature. Devices and circuits can be rolled away when not required. These types of devices offer properties like clarity, dimensional stability, low coefficient of thermal expansion, elasticity etc.
The flexible smartphone is a combination of flexible electronics components.So Flexible Smartphone is an example of Flexible Electronics Technology.


Parts of Flexible Electronics:-

In this part of post we will talk about the parts of Flexible Electronics, And starting with the flex circuit.There are a few basic constructions of flexible circuits but there is significant variation between the different types in terms of their construction. Following is a review of the most common types of flexible circuit constructions.

Types of Flex Circuits


  1. Single-sided flex circuits
  2. Double access or back bared flex circuits
  3. Sculptured flex circuits
  4. Double-sided flex circuits
  5. Multilayer flex circuits
  6. Rigid-flex circuits
  7. Polymer thick film flex circuits

Types of Manufacturing Technology


  1. Amorphous Silicon Technology
  2. Polysilicon Technology
  3. Organic Thin Film Transistors
  4. Single Crystal Silicon on Flexible Substrates
  5. Mixed Oxide Thin Film Transistors
  6. Hybrid (CMOS) Technology

Flexible circuit materials

Each element of the flex circuit construction must be able to consistently meet the demands placed upon it for the life of the product. In addition, the material must work reliably in concert with the other elements of the flexible circuit construction to assure ease of manufacture and reliability. Following are brief descriptions of the basic elements of flex circuit construction.


  • Base material: The base material is the flexible polymer film which provides the foundation for the laminate.
  • Bonding adhesive: Many polyimide flex circuits presently employ adhesive systems of different polymer families. However, some newer thermoplastic polyimide adhesives are making important in-roads. As with the base films, adhesives come in different thickness. Thickness selection is typically a function of the application.
  • Metal foil: A metal foil is most commonly used as the conductive element of a flexible laminate. The metal foil is the material from which the circuit paths are normally etched. A wide variety of metal foils of varying thickness are available from which to choose and create a flex circuit, however, copper foils, serve the vast majority of all flexible circuit applications. Copper’s excellent balance of cost and physical and electrical performance attributes make it an excellent choice.

Flexible Electronic Components

Fast flexible electronics operating at radio frequencies (>1 GHz) are more attractive than traditional flexible electronics because of their versatile capabilities, dramatic power savings when operating at reduced speed and a broader spectrum of applications. Transferrable single-crystalline Si nanoemembranes (SiNMs) are preferred to other materials for flexible electronics owing to their unique advantages. Further improvement of Si-based device speed implies significant technical and economic advantages. While the mobility of bulk Si can be enhanced using strain techniques, implementing these techniques into transferable single-crystalline SiNMs has been challenging and not demonstrated.


  • Circuit board
    • Flexible printed circuits (FPC) are made with a photolithographic technology. An alternative way of making flexible foil circuits or flexible flat cables (FFCs) is laminating very thin (0.07 mm) copper strips in between two layers of PET. These PET layers, typically 0.05 mm thick, are coated with an adhesive which is thermosetting and will be activated during the lamination process.
  • Display
    • Research and development into flexible e-paper-based displays largely began in the late 2000s with the main intentions of implementing this technology in mobile devices. However, this technology has recently made an appearance, to a moderate extent, in consumer television displays as well.Read More:-Wikipedia - Flexible Display
  • Resistors and Capacitors
    • The structures of thin film resistors and capacitors which are constructed on the flexible substrate and the conductive paths are made up of flexible materials such as silicon nanomembranes, grapheme, carbon nanotubes etc. Nanotechnology is to a large extent for the manufacturing of electronic components
  • Memory, Amplifiers and Ring Oscillators
    • The researchers built three kinds of circuits to test the nanocrystal’s performance for circuit applications: an inverter, an amplifier, and a ring oscillator. All of these circuits were reported to operate with a couple of volts, according to the researchers an important point since If you want electronics for portable devices that are going to work with batteries, they have to operate at low voltage or they won’t be useful.

  • Batteries
    • The researchers presented a flexible thin-film lithium ion battery that enables the realization of diverse flexible batteries regardless of electrode chemistry. The result is a flexible Li-ion battery that can be made with almost any electrode material. Here, the researchers used lithium cobalt oxide as the cathode material, which is currently the most widely used cathode in non-flexible Li-ion batteries due to its high performance. For the anode, they used traditional lithium.

Now comes on the Main topic Which is 

Flexible/ Foldable/ Bendable Smartphone: -

So Basically Using All the above Flexible component and Technology Developer and researchers from the various group and company are trying to make various Flexible Devices/ Foldable Devices/Bendable Devices and Flexible or foldable Smartphone is one of them.Flexible or Foldable Smartphone will be based on Flexible electronics and either complete phone or just some pard will be foldable/bendable or flexible.

According to Wikipedia - 

"In May 2011, Human Media Lab at Queen's University in Canada introduced PaperPhone, the first flexible smartphone, in partnership with the Arizona State University Flexible Display Center.PaperPhone used 5 bend sensors to implement navigation of the user interface through bend gestures of corners and sides of the display. In January 2013, the Human Media Lab introduced the first flexible tablet PC, PaperTab.Nokia introduced the Kinetic concept phone at Nokia World 2011 in London.At CES 2013, Samsung showcased the two handsets which incorporate AMOLED flexible display technology during its keynote presentation, the Youm and an unnamed Windows Phone 8 prototype device.Read More:-Wikipedia - Flexible Display."


Upcoming Foldable Smartphone:-
                                                            Lenovo showed two prototype model at the Lenovo tech World 2016.These two are:- CPlus flexible smartphone / smartwatch and the Folio foldable tablet / smartphone.They are actual product and not the concept video and images like Samsung Galaxy X Foldable Phone's leaks.So we can say that may be Lenovo is ahead from other compynies like Samsung,Nokia and LG in the field of Foldable Smartphone.When we talk about the release dates, According to Tech Advisor:- " A Samsung Display Engineer has rained on Tech Advisor's parade with the suggestion that the technology won't mature until 2019."
                                                                                      This is not what we want to hear but may be it is true, that this technology is not developed till now to that level that a complete smartphone can build through it., So As we only can assume or guess that A Complete Foldable Smartphone can not be launched before 2019-2020.So before that just take a look at the Advantages and disadvantages of Flexible/ foldable/ bendable Smartphone.


Advantage and Disadvantage of Flexible/ Foldable/ Bendable Smartphone


  • Advantages
    • light weight
    • Smaller dimensions required
    • Space saving
    • Foldable and bendable
    • Increased circuitry density
    • Wide Viewing Angle 
  • Disadvantages

    • Initial investment may be expensive
    • Integration of components would be challenge for engineers
    • Precision machines required
    • Lifetime

Best Way to Erase Data from Android Smartphone Before Selling It



Android Smartphone is all fun due to the vast freedom we enjoy in it, It is easy to use and having a wide range of features.But the most important thing is that our smartphones have become the secret keepers of our personal and professional life. Whether it be personal photos, videos, contacts, financial information or business emails and files, you cannot risk losing any information to an outsider at any cost. So if you want to sell your old device as you are interested in buying a new one, or probably exchanging a better one. Then before giving away your phone, it is a must that you remove all the accounts, passwords, and all the user data. Performing only a factory reset on the phone might be a good idea to solving some of the problems but not a foolproof one as information saved in your phone can still be traced and sometimes recovered if the other person is having some technical knowledge.

So today in this post, I am sharing the best way to Erase all the data from your Android Smartphone that can't be recovered.

  • How to Permanently Erase All the data from your Android Smartphone:-

  1. Make a Backup first
    1. Open Settings and tap on Backup & reset.If you didn't see the option you have to backup all the data manually to the Computer with the help of data cable.If you found, then move to the next step.
    2. You should see an option called Backup my data. Make sure that it's ticked.
    3. Now go Back, and then find Accounts. Tap on Google.
    4. You'll see your Google account which was used to set up the phone with a green sync symbol next to it. Tap the account.
    5. Make sure that all the options are ticked, All of the data from the smartphone will be backed up automatically to the Google+ account.
  2. Encrypt ( Optional)
    1.  This takes a long time, So First you need to connect your phone to the charger to proceed.
    2. Go to Settings > Security and tap Encrypt phone.
    3. Tap Encrypt phone again to proceed (You might need to try it a few times.).The process can take an hour, and so you'll have to wait.
    4. Once this is done, just reset the phone.
  3. Format

    1. With Setting app
      1. Open your device's Settings app.
      2. Under "Personal," tap Backup & reset. You may need to enter your pattern, PIN, or password.
      3. Under "Personal data," tap Factory data reset.
      4. Read the information and then tap Reset phone.
      5. If you have a screen lock, you'll need to enter your pattern, PIN, or password.
      6. When prompted, tap Erase everything to erase all data from your device's internal storage.
      7. When your device finishes erasing, select the option to restart your device.
      8. You'll see the "Welcome" screen as you did when you turned on your device for the first time.

    2. With Recovery Mode
      1. "Go to" or "Boot in" Recovery mode.
      2. Press the Power Button to start recovery mode.
      3. When your phone reloads, you should see a screen that says "No command" with an android robot in distress. Press and hold the power button, then press the volume up button once to load up the reboot menu.
      4. Using the Volume buttons to scroll through the menu, highlight Wipe data/factory reset.
      5. Press the Power button to select.
      6. Highlight and select Yes to confirm the reset.
      7. Once the reset is complete, you will be bounced back to the same recovery mode menu. Press the Power button to select Reboot system now.
  4. Applying a simple trick
Encrypting the device and then performing a factory reset is generally enough to erase all the data securely, but doing a bit extra doesn't hurt. To do this,

  1. Set up the smartphone after factory resetting it. 
  2. This time, make sure no email details or personal details are added.
  3. Once the setup is complete, Just fill the whole memory with junk files and media.
  4. And then Format Again.
We are suggesting you because this will overwrite the free space with junk data. so if someone tries to recover data he will only get these junk files and media.
If you feel uncomfortable with these steps then there are two software available that also can permanently erase deleted data on Android, including photos, videos, contacts, text messages,ID's and other personal information, and the best thing is that no data recovery software can restore them back.

ChatOnGo for Business App Review


With every passing day, there is a considerable growth in the number of apps. On an average, over 1000 apps get added to app stores every day but only a few make a mark. Only some are able to rise above the others. Every app made to excel in its respective category and with every passing moment the challenge to succeed rises by a notch.
The Business Communication App category has not been much in news. There was a rising importance of corporate apps for informal communication so that the communication gaps could be bridged. There was a need in the market for efficient team collaboration tools and when this need was realized, a large number of players jumped in to seize the opportunity. There are a few trying to rise above the others, make a mark and be among the top apps for the category.
A challenge to survive in the market existed for such apps as organizations believed in communicating on social networks which were free of cost. Such organizations were soon brought face the bitter truth a bit late. There was a downside to the free stuff, they weren’t designed to meet their needs; not only there wasn’t an effective flow of information but also there was a threat to security. There was a chance that the organizations would fall prey to corporate espionage or information leakages.

Among the plethora of business communication apps, there is one app swiftly making it to the top; ChatOnGo for Business. The app perfectly fills the gap that was there in the market, for communicating and for security. This business communication app brings organizations exactly what they need!

We know that it is almost impossible to have a standardized communication app to serve to every industry out there. Every industry has different needs, so apps need to be tailored to meet their specific needs. Though ChatOnGo for Business has a standard version on the app store but it can be tweaked to meet its client’s specific set of demands. The communication believes in adapting to the demands varying with every industry. In addition to this, they are continuously innovating to add more features to the app to address increasing demand for new features.

Adapting to changing business environment and innovation; isn’t this the key to beating the competition and not just surviving but thriving! ChatOnGo for Business follows this sacred mantra for success. Does this make it the next big thing that will shake the market for business communication tools? The app certainly seems to show promise but the question still remains. Will ChatOnGo for Business rise above all and shake the market for business communication apps?
