Samsung to showcase world's first 'stretchable' display

Details from the company have stated that there is going to be 9.1-inch stretchable display using OLED technology that will be showcased at the SID 2017 event, which kicks off on Tuesday at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Its biggest rival Samsung Display Co. also announced yesterday that it would demonstrate the most advanced flexible organic light-emitting diode (OLED) panel technology, so-called stretchable panels, at the same conference.

Samsung Display on Monday (22 May) said it will showcase the world's first stretchable panel at a USA tech fair taking place this week. The stretchable OLED display technology has various applications, for instance, it can be greatly used in Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence and automobile industry.

One more interesting showcase by Samsung is the 1.96-inch ultra-high definition LCD display that has the resolution of 3840 x 2160.

Samsung could lift the lid on a new, stretchable display design tomorrow - paving the way for smartphones screen that can be pulled and squeezed into different sizes.


According to the reports from Yonhap news agency, this new stretchable OLED technology is unique because it is capable of bending in both the directions, whereas the previous panels were created to bend in only one direction. Now, if you're wondering how this technology differs from rollable or previously touted flexible displays here's some detail.

Looking at the current bezel-free display marker, a Samsung Display's engineer earlier this year had said that the foldable display market still has some technical challenges to be addressed due to which foldable phone may not be commercialised until 2019.

London-based research firm IHS Markit has already shared its prediction for Samsung's flexible display business. With the ultimate aim of producing a stretchable OLED Panel that is transformable.

Samsung will also unveil a glass-less three-dimensional OLED display. However, The Korea Herald also mentions two other Samsung panels which we could see being employed sooner on mobile.
