The Samsung Galaxy Round and the LG G Flex are some of the more dramatically curved displays we’ve seen so far, though these are not the flexible material that Samsung showed off last year at CES called Youm. So we wonder when devices with truly flexible displays will arrive. Well, if we can believe the rumors, it may be in 2015.
Industry sources claim that Samsung showed off a 5.68” flexible display in secret during CES 2014, to a handful of analysts, VIPs, and potential customers. Apparently Samsung’s technology was pretty impressive. Those who saw it were amazed at how advanced Samsung’s display technology really is. One of the problems that the engineers had to overcome was how to prevent deterioration when the display is folded and opened a thousand times.
Just like folding a piece of paper, eventually the middle tends to become creased and weak and will tear. However, Samsung has figured out a way to prevent that from happening. We don’t know when we will see commercialization of this technology, but apparently it is ready for mass production, so we may see one as early as this year.
