Samsung develops “unbreakable smartphone panel” and gets it certified
Developed by Samsung Display, the unbreakable panel can be used inside other electronic products, not just smartphones, including consoles for automobiles, mobile military devices, portable game consoles and tablet PCs.
For the tech-savvy, the panel announced today by the South Korean company is, in fact, a flexible OLED display that has an unbreakable substrate and overlay window adhered to it.
Apparently, even after being dropped from 1.2 meters (nearly 4 feet) above the ground 26 times in succession, the unbreakable panel continued to function normally with no damage to its front, sides or edges. The panel was also exposed to high (71 degrees) and low (-32 degrees) temperatures tests, which it fully passed.
But Samsung went even further and did a test of its own that implied dropping the panel from 1.8 meters (nearly 6 feet), but the display continued to operate normally with no sign of damage. Although we don't have an image of this technological wonder yet, but we have no reason to doubt the U.S. Department of Defense.
