CES 2013: Samsung reveals phone with flexible screen

Samsung has been rumored to be readying flexible, high-resolution displays for its smartphones, and this week at CES the South Korean tech giant somewhat confirmed those rumors by showing off several prototypes.

At its keynote on Wednesday, the company unveiled “Youm“, a new line of bendable, rollable, foldable OLED displays, that can be used in smartphones and tablets to make them more resilient and even more portable. OLED (organic light-emitting diodes) technology allows companies to create thinner and lighter displays that also provide even more vivid images than other HD technologies.

Brian Berkeley, senior vice president of Samsung’s San Jose Display Lab, said that with “Youm” the company will be able to make displays on ultra-thin and unbreakable plastic. He demonstrated a phone that consists of a matchbox-sized hard enclosure, with a paper-thin, flexible color screen attached to one end. The screen doesn’t appear flexible enough to fold in half like a piece of paper, but it could bend into a tube.

It won’t break even if it’s dropped, and we can actually bend the screen,” Berkeley said, at which point he grabbed the edge of a prototype screen and started bending it forward and backward without anything happening to the display or the image quality.

Samsung didn’t say anything about when flexible displays might be commercialized. “The concept of the flexible screen has been around for some time, but it finally looks as if Samsung is really going to deliver on that technology,” said Stephen Bell, an analyst with Keystone Global.
