06/19/2013, LG is set to mass produce flexible displays in the fourth quarter of 2013.
12/02/2012, Samsung has had their fair share of coverage on flexible displays in the past, and this time around, it is no different. It is a good thing that we are not talking about mass production of flexible AMOLED displays being delayed, but rather, the BBC claims that Samsung is more than ready to begin shipping their first batch of devices to the market sometime before the first half of 2013 […]
12/05/2011, Some time earlier this year there were concept drawings of a Samsung phone with a flexible OLED display. This was a rather intriguing concept that we didn’t think would be happening anytime soon, but we were then proved wrong as Samsung stepped forward and said that flexible display smartphones were in the works and would be introduced some time in 2012.
10/31/2011, At one point in time, getting digital displays to be flexible proved to be quite a challenge for engineers, but it has been some time since they have already managed that feat – and now the challenge lies in making sure such flexible displays will be able to display far better resolution in addition to making sure the resolution count and color, brightness, et al, are improved constantly. AUO might […]
10/28/2011, We did check out some flexible displays over at the recently concluded Nokia World 2011, but while those do not seem to be on their way to the masses too soon, Samsung might have an ace up their sleeves with the target of rolling out smartphones that have flexible displays in 2012 – while tablets and other portable devices will also come with such displays in due time, assuming their […]
05/24/2011, NHK, Japan’s public broadcaster, is currently making leaps and advances on the development of thin, flexible displays – keeping their fingers crossed that a roll-up TV is on the cards sometime down the road. This is a task that NHK has been working on for several years now, and their latest prototype of the flexible OLED screen will be paraded at an open-day event at its R&D center in Tokyo […]
05/16/2011, The Flexible Display Center and Universal Display Corporation has just announced that they managed to fabricate the first full-color, flexible AMOLED display prototype in the world with success, thanks to their own bond/de-bond manufacturing process. Of course, that isn’t the only “secret ingredient” in this technological recipe, where it will work in tandem with Universal Display’s full-color, top-emission phosphorescent OLED technology and materials. The displays will also utilize Universal Display’s […]
01/06/2011, We hope that flexible displays will become more common in the future and designers out there are already dreaming of what devices that use such technology will look like. One such design is the Flexible Modile, a mobile device that uses technology that can be incorporated into a soft surface, ideally a fabric or mesh that would house the main components and mount the screen. This concept features a touch […]
10/28/2010, The folks over at Liquavista have demonstrated its electrowetting technology in the past and now the display has been updated to be “unbreakable” as it’s quite flexible. The display also offers full color, high refresh rates, visibility in all lighting conditions and also the benefits of being less power hungry. Of course, everybody’s definition of unbreakable is different as you don’t see them hammering at the display with a blunt […]
10/04/2010, [CEATEC 2010] Most people remember TDK as a magnetic tape company, but few know that TDK has always been making electronics components. These days, it is their main business again and at Ceatec, TDK was showing its OLED flexible displays. As you can expect, they are super-thin (paper-thin in fact) and they can display color images while being flexed/bended. TDK currently thinks about using them for wearable electronics. No real […]
08/26/2010, LG is promising new display technologies that would give new dimensions to electronic paper. The division, LG Display, is hoping to bring a 9.7-inch color e-paper display and a 19-inch flexible e-paper display to the market soon. Electronic paper uses minimal power and only consumes battery when the display is being changed, like via a page flip, and has been employed in electronic book readers like the Amazon Kindle, which […]
05/25/2010, Flexible displays could very well be the future, but until the technology becomes mainstream and affordable enough for the masses, it will remain the stuff of fantasy for most of us. LG wants to prepare for the future though by filing a patent known as the “Mobile terminal using flexible display and method of controlling the mobile terminal”. This patent application basically covers flexible mobile terminal ideas that you can […]
05/20/2010, HP is certainly no stranger to flexible displays or wrist-mounted displays, and now reports are in that the computing giant is busy working on a solar-powered watch for the US military that is based on such flexible display technology – dubbed the Dick Tracy watch. Since it’s made from plastic and is flexible, powered by solar energy, it’s much less likely to malfunction or run out of power while in […]
04/28/2010, The smart researchers over at Queen’s University in Ontario, Canada are busy working on a new type of flexible display. Code-named Cobra, it works by combining a wearable computer and shoulder-mounted pico-projector coupled with a flexible display that has flex-sensing wires and sensors. What this means is that users will be able to interact with the system via the screen itself. In theory, you could bend a corner back and […]
