Samsung may unveil world’s first stretchable OLED display

The world’s leading organic light-emitting diode (OLED) display maker Samsung Display Co. will unveil next-generation flexible panel technology that will allow a display to be stretched for the first time in the world. According to Korean media outlets which first reported the news, the stretchable display is “the most advanced flexible display” to date.


The company said the stretchable OLED display is unique since it can bend in both directions, while previous flexible panels could only bend in one direction. Samsung has apparently said that the display will still maintain a high degree of resolution even when it’s being flexed. This advanced flexible display could be used for various technologies, including wearable displays, artificial intelligence and vehicle displays.

Samsung will reveal a 9.1-inch stretchablethat can bend up to 12mm in both the directions, organic LED panel during the Society for Information Display 2017 event. This event will run from Tuesday till Thursday at the LA Convention Center. This may not sound as that big of a “bend”, but we have to remember that this technology is still in its early stages of development and will undoubtedly be perfected in the future.  The display technology, however, is still in its nascent stage and may go through more research and development before it is commercialised.

Samsung is also said to unveil a 5.09-inch glassless 3D OLED panel aimed at the immersive multimedia experience and VR products. The display is reportedly capable of reproducing objects in the panel, which change depending on the viewers position. This could be used in a multitude of ways like 3-D pop-up books, 3-D games and virtual reality”. Another interesting exhibit from Samsung is a 1.96-inch ultra-high-definition LCD display. With a resolution of 3840 x 2160, its small size works out a pixel density of 2,250ppi. For comparison, the Samsung Galaxy S8’s screen only boasts the “modest” 570 pixels per inch.
