The event is put together by the World Information Display Society (SID) and will run (again, online) through the end of the work week (Friday). The company will be presenting at the virtual show using the theme "Better life thru Samsung OLED."

Samsung's Slider is apparently similar to LG's DOA rollable design that allows the screen to grow larger by rolling it in landscape mode. This display starts out looking like a typical smartphone screen, but continues expanding on the right side until there is room for large screen videos and other content, and is big enough to support multitasking.

The manufacturer also will display its Under Panel Camera (UPC) as a way to "minimize the bezel and maximize the screen" on a laptop. The UPC will be placed under the panel on existing IT devices.
