Samsung showcases 5.5-inch flexible display at CES
People will surel;y get in line to see this one at CES 2013, Samsung's new 5.5" flexible phone screen. CNET writes the South Korean electronics giant will show off a pair of bendable screens at next week's consumer electronics show (CES) in Las Vegas. Samsung Display will show off a bendable 5.5" screen with a 1280 x 720 pixel resolution (276ppi), this model is aimed at future smartphones. On top of that, the company will also reveal a 55" bendable screen for televisions.
Attendees will get to see a 5.5-inch flexible screen intended for smartphone use, with a 1,280x720-pixel HD resolution and a 267 pixel density. In addition, the team will also show off a television-size 55-inch screen.
A flexible display offers design freedom, Samsung Display told CNET, noting that although its demo screens curve without rending, they don't yet roll up.
In addition to creating the material that becomes the main substance of the screen, the display company's labs must also develop the touch panel and cover lens, both components that make a screen a screen.
Samsung has been developing curving screens for some time, showing off smaller display demos, like the 4.5-inch WVGA screen with about a 200 pixel density that CNET saw at CES 2011. With this demo's increased resolution and screen size, Samsung is clearly keeping pace with today's smartphone expectations.
