Watch Next-Gen Samsung Display In Action: Rollable, Flex In and Out and Sensor OLED
At SID 2023, Samsung unveiled next-gen display technologies and showcased them through device prototypes. I like Rollable Flex the most, while the Flex In and Out and Sensor OLED Display panels are stunningly wonderful. Check the next-gen Samsung Display prototypes below:
Rollable Flex expands more than five times, from 49 mm to 254.4 mm in length. While conventional foldable or slidable form factors offer up to three times the scalability, Rollable Flex overcomes such limitations by enabling the display to be rolled and unrolled on an O-shaped axis like a scroll.
Flex In & Out
This new foldable phone concept can be folded both inward and outward 360 degrees.
The ‘in-folding’ form factor, which can only be folded inward, requires a separate external panel to view information while folded, but the Flex In & Out is able to overcome that, opening up the possibility of lighter and thinner foldable phones.
Sensor OLED Display
Samsung Display unveiled a new Sensor OLED Display that can recognize fingerprints anywhere on the screen and even check cardiovascular health at SID Display Week 2023. It can measure the user’s heart rate, blood pressure and stress level simply with the touch of two fingers.
