Washington: Nokia has unveiled a flexible OLED smartphone concept ‘the Kinetic’ – which is capable of physically bending and twisting.
To zoom in and out of photos the phone must be twisted in and out, while another outward twist takes the user back to the menu, reports Discovery News.

Although the idea isn’t unique to Nokia, it is the first company to come out with a usable prototype, even though they reportedly have no plans to sell it.

This kind of phone can come in useful during winters when wearing gloves makes it difficult to handle touchscreen phones. However, multitasking will be difficult as this phone requires both hands to work it.
