Samsung has been researching in its bid to create more flexible displays. The Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology has designed a seamless display that will allow a user to fold the screen in half, and at the same time avoid a crease.
This move by the company will allow the company to produce phones that offer a huge display in the future. Therefore, the moment a user has finished using the display, he/she can simply fold up the AMOLED screen. This will also allow Samsung to produce a phone that is capable of offering a large sized screen with small measurements.
The seamless display is made from two AMOLED panels, silicone rubber, a modular case and a glass cover. The screen did not lose its brightness even after experts at Samsung had folded it screen for a hundred thousand times. Experts noticed that the brightness at center of the display (the point where the two panels meet) reduced by just about 6%. This reduction cannot be noticed by a human eye.
Apparently, Samsung has been trying to create fold-able OLEDs for many months now. The company showcased a concept 3D TV, which uses two fold-able OLED panels in December 2010. On the other hand, in 2009, the company had demonstrated a fold-able mobile phone with two AMOLED panels.
While the new AMOLED display won’t be incorporated in a Samsung handset anytime soon, the company indicated that it will take around two years to use it on a new phone. Samsung is trying to perfect the process before it finally rolls out a gadget featuring its new AMOLED display. This technology will also allow Samsung to put a number of prototype AMOLED screens on display for the next generation of the Samsung Galaxy Tab.
