We have heard both flexible screens in recent years, they have become this kind of technology which everyone talks about but no one finds you a true value in commercial products, has all been promises and attempts that do not end up taking off, such as the case of the G-Flex for LG and Samsung’s Edge family.
Samsung has been one of the companies that have most shown prototypes of flexible panels, so rumors of possible launches in 2014 and 2015; and this 2016 does not want to be left behind, because we already have the first rumors of a so-called Galaxy X, which would be a new family of devices with flexible screen that it would during 2017, something that starts to make sense with the recent introduction of a new flexible AMOLED panel.
New Generation of Folding Panels from Samsung
This week is carrying to out it SID 2016 in the city of San Francisco, a fair annual where is presented them innovations in the field of the screens, where Samsung has shown new panels that could be used in their next devices.
The first of them, and most interesting, is a 5.7 inch with resolution QHD AMOLED panel (2560 x 1440 pixels), a thickness of 0.3 mm, weighing 5 grams and a radius of curvature of 10 mm, which will wrap it and so we have a new design and interact with a mobile phone.
On the other hand, also is has made the announcement of two panels touch AMOLED of 13.3 and 14 inches that have reduced its thickness in a 40%, what will allow having computers portable and convertible thinner and light. It also became known that in the coming days they will show a transparent panel and other reflective created for mirrors, technology that arose in the stage of development during the past CES 2016.
But without doubt the most attractive is roll-able AMOLED panel, which coincides almost in all the rumors of the Galaxy X, with the exception of the 4 K resolution, what opens us to new possibilities and also leaves us with many questions, since we do not imagine as a smartphone capable of roll on both sides, unless it fits as a bracelet could be used.
