Samsung showcases its stretchable OLED display in new video
The display shown in the video is a 9.1-inch OLED panel that Samsung claims has a travel of up to 12 mm and can stretch in both directions, all the while maintaining high resolution, after which it returns to its original, flat position. The video shows in real time how the panel looks from above and below when pressure is applied to its surface.
Unlike Samsung’s bendable displays, which have seen integration in Galaxy edge devices, as well as the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, this new, stretchable display is unlikely to make its way into smartphones.
Instead, such a technology could find more practical applications in wearables, IoT, and more interestingly, according to Samsung, “AI applications”.
Still, a stretchable display with less travel could add another layer of much-welcomed tactility to smartphone and tablet touchscreens.
