As part of the Display Week conference, LG and Samsung presented new display technologies for smartphones.
Samsung Display continues to develop its foldable screens.
Samsung Display and LG Display used the Display Week conference currently taking place in San Jose, California, to present new technologies that could be used in foldable smartphones in the future.
Display can be folded inwards and outwards
LG Display demonstrates an 8-inch foldable touchscreen that can be folded both inwards and outwards. With such 360-degree foldable OLED screens, smartphone manufacturers would no longer have to decide whether their device could be folded inwards or outwards – both would be possible. This would also eliminate the need for a smaller outdoor display. LG Display’s prototype can be folded up to 200,000 times and offers a resolution of 2,480 x 2,200 pixels.
Display can be folded twice
At Display Week, Samsung Display is showing the two concepts Flex G and Flex S, which were already unveiled at CES. Both screens can be folded twice. The Flex G can be folded twice in one direction, while the Flex S can be folded once outwards and once inwards. At Display Week, the display divisions of Samsung and LG are giving an outlook on how screens could develop over the next few years. Specific smartphone models that use the new technology have not yet been announced.
