Meet The Samsung's Stretchable Display

Samsung Stretchable Display

 

Samsung is always keen on making some of the breakthroughs in technology. It popularized the Android in phones, made AMOLED and OLED widely used and recently it is making the Tizen OS popular. Now, the South Korean tech giant is looking to make TVs more flexible (literally) and advanced and Samsung is very good at making consumer electronics. Recently, it announced a TV which bends but does not break. Before going into details, you have to know about the Flexible displays.

Flexible Displays & Samsung

We have seen a wide range of crazy and futuristic designs for the TV of the future. Panasonic introduced a Transparent TV that looks like a glass while it is off. From box-shaped to beautifully designed Curved High definition displays, we have come a long way.

Samsung played a crucial role in this journey. It started working on these flexible displays from many years back. Basically, Flexible displays must have the following qualities:

  • The display must be capable of bending in any direction
  • The display needs to ben without any cracks or other damage to the screen
  • The bending of the display must not cause any display problems (like black spots, rainbow-colored and so on)
  • The display can be viewable irrespective of the bending

The challenge in creating a bending display is making the components inside the display deformable too. This is why flexible smartphones are not coming into reality. But Samsung worked on wide range of designs for flexible smartphones in the past also patenting many of them.

Samsung's New TV

Samsung unveiled this flexible and stretchable TV a few days back. The TV displayed can be bent, twisted, rolled and deformed. The display can also survive dents of 1/2 inch deep. The display unveiled is a 9.1-inch display which is still a prototype but it is doing very well than its competitors already.

As the display is OLED, there is no compromise on the picture quality. Along with this display, Samsung is also showcasing a 5.09-inch OLED display that can be used to see 3D, without any aid of glasses. The glassless 3D technology is complicated as the generation of the 3D picture must be done within the display itself. 

It looks like Samsung is not willing to give up on the technology of displays and maybe one day it will bring a flexible phone or a wearable into the reality. What do you think? Are flexible displays innovative or just a gimmick?
