This whole new technology will be displayed at the Society for Information Display 2017 in Los Angeles. The event starts tomorrow and runs until Thursday. Unlike flexible panels currently available, stretchable OLED displays can bend in both directions.

Although foldable smartphones and phablets are still in the concept/prototype stage, Samsung Display is taking the existing technology one step forward. During this year's Society for Information Display event that takes place in Los Angeles starting tomorrow, Samsung's display-making affiliate will unveil the world's first stretchable display.

According to Yonhap News, "The South Korean company said the stretchable OLED display is unique since it can bend in both directions, while previous flexible panels could only bend in one direction." Industry experts claim that the technology involved in building such panels is far more complex than anything used for the displays currently available, making this stretchable AMOLED panel "the ultimate product in flexible technology."

Samsung claims that the new display can stretch up to 12 millimeters when pressed while maintaining a high resolution. This display will be shown in a 9.1-inch version and is expected to be used for IoT and AI-related products. Obviously, it might take at least one year or two until this technology reaches the masses.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
