Samsung To Unveil World’s First ‘Stretchable’ Display Panel!

Technology can be twisted, twirled or bent into any shape or form with a tincture of creativity. And Samsung affirms this by crafting its next innovation. A market, which is craving for the newfangled technologies in the gadgets, the global tech giant has taken the concept to another level by developing its first foldable display panel. Yes, you heard it right!

The giant South Korean conglomerate will unveil the world's first stretchable OLED screen at the U.S tech fair in Los Angeles this week.

Based on the leaked information, Samsung will reveal a 9.1-inch (23cm) flexible display, which can be curved up to 12 mm from both ends. It can be found in the upcoming smartphones, smart watches or even automobiles. Declaring about this innovative initiative, a Samsung Display spokesperson informed that, “While the current flexible OLED is able to be transformed in only one side, this stretchable OLED can be transformed — whether curved, bent [sic] or rolled — in both sides, above and below.” Samsung was the first to introduce the curved edge-to-edge display with its 2017 flagship Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus.


The official also specified that the development of the same is at a concept stage right now and it would take some time to be found in the products. A leaked image of the display panel has surfaced the internet which renders a small hump formed on the screen like a hill due to pressure. Samsung sources further revealed that the company is likely to release a 1.96 inches UHD (3840 x 2160) display with 2250 ppi density, at the event, designed for the virtual reality.

While most of the top brands are working on the curved display smartphones this year, the advanced stretchable display panel could mark a revolutionary era of its own. Yet again Samsung proves to be a trendsetter when it comes to experimenting with the latest technology!
