Next-generation OLED technology unveiled for the first time, turning the future into reality. In this online exhibition, Samsung Display will showcase next-generation OLED technologies that will change our daily lives, such as S-shaped foldable display, slidable display, and under-screen camera.
Samsung Display will introduce the S-shaped foldable display by way of a video, which uses the current outstanding OLED technology and is a product that can be folded multiple times – twice inside and outside. When folded, it can be used as a smartphone; when fully unfolded, it looks like a tablet.
This is a 17-inch foldable product, when folded in a 4:3 screen ratio, it can present a tablet-sized screen; when unfolded, it is a 17-inch monitor-level screen. This foldable screen is highly portable while providing a differentiated product like a PC monitor “Carrying Small Seeing Big”.
Samsung Slidable display product can stretch the screen horizontally while maintaining the appearance of the existing smartphone to take full advantage of the large screen. It is only the size of an ordinary smartphone, making it both portable and convenient. When the screen is stretched, multitasking or large-screen video and content appreciation can be performed.
This is a full-screen technology that minimizes the top bezel and maximizes the display screen by installing the front camera under the display and improving the transmittance of the camera module part of the display to ensure camera functionality.
On May 18, Joo-Sun Choi, President of Samsung Display, will deliver a keynote speech on the future of display. In addition to exhibiting at SID 2021, Samsung Display is also actively participating in various other events, such as keynote speeches and paper presentations.
