Samsung will showcase 5.5-inch flexible screen at CES 2013
January 16, 2013
There has been a quiet long talk about flexible AMOLED screens. It seems like it is the future of mobile display technology. However, up till now the claims of flexible screen were just a prototype in labs, but now Samsung has announced that it will be showing a 5.5-inch flexible display with resolution of 720p at the CES 2013.
There are still no words on whether the upcoming Galaxy flagship, Galaxy S IV will have this non-flexible display. Flexible screens are not a new innovation for Samsung as the company has itself shown a smaller 4.5-inch WVGA screen at CES 2011.
I read it on Mobile Syrup that in the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) 2011, Samsung showed flexible display and its capabilities. After two years at CES 2013, the company has once again stated that it will be showcasing a 5.5-inch flexible display with 1280×720 resolution and 276ppi (pixels per inch).
Mobile Syrup is an independent platform for news and reviews on mobile technology, which connects professionals and mobile enthusiasts. I am an active member of the forum from last three years.
Whether the flexible display is just for the show or is incorporated in Samsung devices (smartphones or tablets), there is no proof yet. It’s appearance at CES 2013 is a hint that things might have come to achievement. We would love to see how mobile device manufacturers will innovate in terms of design to accommodate the flexible panels.
