How much can you hear about the smaller iPad, the premieres of phones and tablets that do not bring any technological revolution to the market? Many of us probably would like to see products that will change our everyday lives again. The inventions that can contribute to such changes include a flexible screen. Everything indicates that before 2017 such solutions will enter the market.
The transparent and flexible screen are solutions that all players producing displays are working on today. Their new components are to revolutionize the market. According to rumors, the first copies of flexible e-paper should have long left the Korean production lines.For now, however, there are no manufacturers who presented devices using this technology. I dare say that the first companies that will reach for this type of solution will be American giants Amazon and Apple. Both LG declaring the production of this type of panels, and growing up as the world leader Samsung, are unlikely to be the first to enter the market with such revolutionary products. For now, the market is not talking about any e-readers or tablets with flexible displays.
Samsung flexible screen design
The company that has just started the construction of a factory for small and flexible OLED displays for mobile devices plans to employ 840 thousand employees in the coming years. The project will be co-financed by the Korean government.
It is difficult to clearly determine where it will be possible to use the future 60-inch flexible screens. Televisions are already extremely slim and their flexibility is rather superfluous. Such large OLED screens with super-resolution can be used primarily in commercial and not consumer solutions . Of course, a lot can change in five years. Just look how the mobile market has evolved over the past years. In 2017, and probably for giant flexible screens will be used.
Until we see the mass-produced devices, all information about them can be put on the shelf with scientific experiments, technological curiosities or simply science fiction.
