Samsung has finally decided on a name for its next-generation flexible displays. The tech has been talked about for the good part of a year and will now be known as Youm. Youm displays will not only be thinner and lighter, but also pretty much unbreakable. A virtually unbreakable screen will go a long way with consumers. The picture above shows the 4 layers of the Youm screen.The four layers are the polarizer, encap (film), organic layer, and TFT (film). It's a pretty ingenious creation. With the screen technology named and inching closer to mass production, the South Korean company has filed the trademark names of 4 new screens. The trademarked names are FAMOLED, WAMOLED, PAMOLED, and TAMOLED.
We are not going to speculate what the capabilities of these new screens will bring, but Samsung is really paving the way in screen innovation. Some very exciting products should hit the shelves by year's end if everything goes as planned. Let the speculation begin on what the first product will be that deploys the Youm screen... flip phone that is all touch anyone?
