Samsung confirms flexible-OLED displays for Galaxy range in 2013
Samsung looks set to become the world’s first manufacturer of phones that use flexible OLED displays — will the Galaxy S4 be the first?
Samsung will unleash a series of ultra-flexible phones at some point during 2013, according to reports. The devices will pack in flexible OLED displays that can be twisted and folded, said the report.
Samsung has invested heavily in flexible OLED technology during the past several years. The company claims this new type of display is lighter, harder to break, and generally superior in every way to current glass-based panels.
The South Korean firm are reportedly on the verge of rolling out mass production of the devices after years of speculation, reports The Sun.
These new flexible displays are made using organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs), which are super thin and can be attached to flexible materials like a smartphone’s plastic screen.
Samsung’s upcoming flagship, known as the Galaxy S4, which is tipped for a Q2 2013 release, is expected to feature a 5-inch 1080p display based on this new type of screen-tech, although nothing with regards to the handset has been confirmed as yet.
