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.
