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.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
