    Samsung To Introduce New Flexible 4.5inch Display At CES


    You might have missed this in the news, but Samsung has a new display that might be of interest to you. Samsung, the leader in Smartphone display technology, just recently brought out their next screen technology. This new technology is a flexible AMOLED display that’s only 2mm thick and 4.5 inches big. This means if you are in the market for a new phone that’s screen is larger than 4.3 inches, Samsung can provide you that soon from what we can tell. This Flexible screen technology seems to be the same thing we have on the Nexus S (curved display), and this is either a more advanced display or the previous technology was simple limited to 4.0 inches.

    Here is the press release:
    SMD is presenting a prototype of the most advanced flexible AMOLED display. Only 2mm thick, the 4.5 inch flexible AMOLED runs at a WVGA 800 x 480 resolutions and can be rolled down to a one centimeter radius.

    At WVGA, this new concept prototype offers a display resolution four times that of the previous most flexible AMOLED prototype in the industry, thanks to the use of a new plastic substrate that can withstand the 450-500 degree temperatures required in the manufacturing process.



    SMD is showing the world’s first large transparent AMOLED Display prototype, designed for use in applications from PC monitors to TVs.

    Whether the prototype AMOLED display is turned off or on, it maintains up to a 30% transparency. The average amount of transparency elsewhere has been below 10 percent.

    SMD’s transparent AMOLED prototype provides the highest resolution on a transparent large screen TV (over 19 inches) or monitor display.

    The screen will be one of the many things Samsung will announce on the 5th, so stay tuned for that.

    Well the Nexus S has something similar on it. If the screen wasn't flexible, it wouldn't be able to curve...
    So that's how it can be used in phones.

    what does having a curved screen on the nexus S actually do for you as
    a consumer? Having a convexed screen seems more like a marketing gimmick. old CRT screens where convexed and I hated it. in fact i'm sure most people hated it thats why everyone switched to flat screens. And other than rolling up you cell phone I don't see much use for this tech when its installed in a rigid frame like a phone or TV.

    A curved screen has nothing to do with flexibility, they are manufactured that way.

    Well gingerbread does have a CRT screen off effect.
    And the covered display is to fit your face better, and something else... Who knows. When I used it, it didn't feel different at all.

    I guess one could say that the screen tech would bring a higher level of screen life as the screen would not be so sensitive to damage IE phone is tight pants pocket. but again this would really depend on the whole device being flexible. for this tech to even be useful. and there is no mention of this new tech providing greater impact protection. because even if the screen can bend and roll can it take a direct jab from lets say a pen or small object with out damaging the pixels. and the screen res is low one would thing samsung would push for all screens to be at or above what apple is shipping right now. so for now im not sold on this idea. Does the nexus S have gorilla glass??

    To fit your face better HMM. i think you are mistaking Curved with concaved. because a concaved screen that didnt blur or distort would be cool as that would fit your face better.

    OK then that is cool and I think that would provide some ergonomic designs in cells phones to come about. I love my Droid X but it being flat as a table on my face isn't always the most comfortable thing. so having the ability to concave a screen and not loose picture quality is nice as well. Also I thought about this for a sec I have a case for my droid X and when ever you click it on or off of the device it puts a considerable amount of stress on the screen for those few secs you are putting on or off. having a flexible screen even just a little bit would be nice as that would allow some Play in the screen so you don't stress it in situations like this or like i said earlier when you have your 500 dollar smart phone in your jeans and you bend down to get something and the jeans tighten on the phone like a death grip.
