Samsung has made an ‘unbreakable’ display for future smartphones
Samsung claimed that it has developed an “unbreakable” OLED screens of smartphones made from flexible plastic rather than glass.
Hojung Kim, General Manager of the Samsung Communication Display Team said, “The fortified plastic window is especially suitable for portable electronic devices not only because of its unbreakable characteristics, but also because of its lightweight, transmissivity, and hardness, which are all very similar to glass.”
The Korean giant says its claims were tested and verified by Underwriters Laboratories, a company that does testing for the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration. The panel has also been tested at extreme temperatures and proved resistant at 71-degrees Celsius (160-degrees Fahrenheit) and -32-degrees Celsius (-25.6 Fahrenheit).
However, Samsung didn’t mention when it would launch a smartphone with an “unbreakable” display. It’s unlikely to come in the upcoming Galaxy Note 9, which is being announced on August 9 this year.
