Video – Samsung reveals folding OLED
Samsung has revealed a folding active matrix OLED display, claimed to be the first, at Japanese display show FPD International.
Samsung claims the display is 0.5mm thick and WQVGA (480xRGBx272), with above NTSC gamut 8-bit colour.
Intensity is 200Cd/m² and claimed life is 20,000 hours, credited to “thin film encapsulation”. If this display has plastic substrates, as opposed to two glass substrates folding together, this is an exceptional lifetime.
The firm also showed displays that definitely had plastic substrates at the same show:
