On the back of a recent story about Samsung patenting a bendable OLED display for smartphones, Panasonic is rumoured to be developing flexible lithium-ion batteries designed for the smartphone market.

One of the roadblocks to creating a flexible battery has been the ability for it to retain its charge as it’s bent out of shape. The new battery is said to be able to do this even with a twist angle of 25 degrees.

The prototype is also said to hold a charge of up to 60mAh, which, when you consider the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge can hold up to 3600mAh, there is still some time to go before it is commercially viable.
