Currently 5-inches is the only screen size available, but work is being done on other screen sizes, according to Nick Vasiljevic, managing director of Pilotfish, the company ITRI hired to design the smartphone model. But for designers, the flexible 5-inch screen does offer other possibilities, he added. The hinge and flexible part of the screen can be in different places, so the screen could bend at the 3-inch mark instead of 2.5-inch mark. Pictures of the smartphone appear to show a break at the center of the screen, so it looks almost like two separate screens, but that's not the case.
