Samsung to unveil world's first stretchable display

Samsung to unveil world's first stretchable displayā€¯

SAMSUNG DISPLAY will show off a new type of stretchable OLED display at the SID show in Los Angeles this week. This stretchable display is the most flexible yet, more so than bendable, foldable and rollable varieties and will give greater latitude to device and accessory designers.

"When pressed, the stretchable display is dented up to 12 millimetres, like a balloon, and then reverts back to its original shape", the company said. That said, we've always been impressed by Samsung's Super AMOLED displays, which gives us hope that a stretchable OLED panel will have the same high quality as its regular displays. Apparently upon pressing, the display will stretch as much as 1.2cm. "The stretchable display will be widely used in the era of the fourth Industrial Revolution at the moment when the demand of healthcare through the IoT is on the rise".

As well as being a world first, Samsung's prototype stretchy screen opens up new perspectives and potential applications, after years researching and developing different types of flexible or transparent displays.
