Samsung’s Flexible AMOLED Screen
Samsung has announced that their much anticipated flexible screens will start to be developed at a major scale later this year. According to Android Community, the first production of screens should start in the second or third quarter. It is still unclear when the public should expect to see these screens; but if Google has its way, it will not be much longer.
AMOLED, or Active Matrix Organic light emitting diode, is simply a type of display. It is suppose to be ideal for full-fluid motion. The pixels in these displays are suppose to be capable of turning on and off three times quicker than a conventional motion picture film.
Samsung’s own video about this new technology has provided a whole new idea on where tablets and other touchscreen technologies can take us. It is kind of crazy to think that someone could be using one of these screens and then simply roll it up. Anyone who has ever broken their phone screen can probably appreciate the beauty in this kind of technology.
It will be amazing to see the level of user interface this type of screen will bring to the public. Phones Review stated that they received a tip from a Samsung executive that these screens will be delivered on Smartphones sometime within the next year.
This definitely has the potential to change who is the top dog in the smart phone community. Samsung should have plenty of eager buyers by the time they release their phones with these types of screens. That does not mean, however, that Apple will not jump on the bandwagon once that release date is here with their newest iPhone.
So, check out the video demonstration and let me know what you think.
