Samsung to unveil world's first 'stretchable' display panel

Samsung to unveil world's first 'stretchable' display panel

Most of the existing flexible OLED displays are bendable in only one direction, whereas you can transform the stretchable OLED in both sides.

While not as known as CES, SID, or the Society for Information Display, has its own trade show this week to show off the advances in consumer display tech. Its biggest rival Samsung Display Co. also announced yesterday that it would demonstrate the most advanced flexible organic light-emitting diode (OLED) panel technology, so-called stretchable panels, at the same conference.

Samsung Display said Monday it will showcase the world's first "stretchable" panel this week.

Samsung hope its newly invented "stretchable" OLED panel can transform how we use the Internet of Things and WiFi-enabled devices for the home. It is claimed that the display can be indented by up to 12mm and revert back to its original shape without issue. With this smaller 3D display users will see any displayed image differently based upon their viewing position.

That might still be a pipe dream, but Samsung's display making arm wants to go one step further at Display Week 2017 tomorrow.

Samsung also revealed a 1.96-inch UHD (ultra high definition) display at the same conference.

There is no release date for any of the products that Samsung is due to show at SID, which is really a show for demonstrating design concepts rather than finished products.

The news isn't entirely surprisingly given the onslaught of patents submitted from tech companies in relation to flexible displays. The former technology uses is a 5.09-inch display which can be utilized for 3-D pop-up book, 3-D game and virtual reality.

The report said the iPhone 9 is expected to come in two OLED models - 5.28- and 6.46-inch display sizes.

IHS estimated the sales for flexible displays will rise to $15.7 billion ($12 billion) in 2020.
