Those flexible OLED displays that Samsung showcased could still be out for mass production within the year. An official of the company said that mass production this year remains on target but there is no definite date yet on when it will be ready.
Smartphones and tablets are likely to benefit once the flexible OLED displays are commercialised, bringing with it a lot of possibilities on what kind of display the next batch of devices will be.
A slightly curved screen is already a reality with Samsung showing it off on the Galaxy Nexus with its slight bend on the lower part of the device but a more flexible display could lead to folding screens, which means more viewing area for the users without the added bulk.
Samsung has been on a roll when it comes to displays, coming up with the HD Super AMOLED on the Nexus and just recently, announced an AMOLED screen on the large version of its Galaxy Note.
