Just two day back we heard that Samsung was planning on announcing a ‘stretchable’ OLED display at SID 2017. As predictable, the company showcased a 9.1-inch prototype OLED along with a 1.96-inch 4K LCD and a 5.09-inch OLED panel. The all new stretchable display adds amazing benefit to roll or bent into any form the user want it and it can also go back to its unique original shape. Not only that, it can take dents up to half an inch deep.
According to a Samsung spokesperson, “While current flexible OLED is able to be transformed in only one side, this stretchable OLED can be transformed — whether curved, bent or rolled — in both sides, above and below.”
Although, the technology is still fresh, the electronic giant truly believes that these can be used in a multiplicity of places like wearables, in-car displays and maybe even smartphones. But being a example, there is no verification if Samsung will ever put it on consumer products.
Well that’s not all; Samsung also displayed a 1.96-inch LCD prototype which has a high resolution of 3840×2160 pixels which means a striking pixel density of 2250ppi. These are most probably expected to be used in VR equipment though the dates of its commercial launch of this display are not yet confirmed.
Then also there was the 5.09-inch OLED panel with “glassless” stereoscopic 3D. Although 3D content had seen a decline, Samsung is still banking upon it and says that it will present additional natural-looking results than an LCD. Well, apart from games and pop-up books it is expected that it could also adjoin depth to VR experiences.
