Samsung Electronics has said that they are planning to launch mobile phones with flexible displays next year and will gradually move onto tablets and other portable devices. The company should get a good response as the innovative technology just might be a good seller.
“The flexible display, we are looking to introduce sometime in 2012, hopefully the earlier part. The application probably will start from the handset side,” said spokesman Robert Yi.
Samsung had earlier showed off its flexible OLED displays inside rigid cases that kept the screens curved. The technology has material within each pixel that generates light, making it suitable for flexible screens than LCDs, which would require both a flexible screen and a backlight.
