Samsung Built A 'Unbreakable' Flexible Display

Apple Supplier LG Display Slashes Investment Plans as Losses Mount Samsung announces new 'unbreakable' display that survives punishing UL certification

Samsung Display has put its new supposedly unbreakable smartphone display panel through the paces, and the results are in.

Samsung suggested this week that the panel could potentially be used on more than just smartphones.

The new panel was developed using an unbreakable substrate and, in place of traditional glass, has a fortified plastic window securely adhered to it.

UL certified that the display passed the real-time durability test based on United States military standards, surviving 26 successive drop tests at 1.2 metres and withstanding extreme temperatures.

Samsung highlighted that even in a subsequent 1.8M (nearly 6 feet) drop test, its unbreakable panel operated normally with no sign of damage.

Samsung hasn't yet said when the panel will show up in devices, but the firm is widely expected to show off its first flexible smartphone early next year. This is quite different from what is now offered, where most displays have a glass film, which is usually what cracks on impact.

The testing includes dropping the screen from 1.2 metres (about 4 feet) twenty six times in a row!

On top of that testing found that the panels were also capable of working in extreme temperatures, between 71 and -32 Celsius, without losing any functionality. At the same time, Samsung has managed to produce a plastic cover with a weight, transmissivity, and hardness "very similar to glass". The new display opens a new world of possibilities and it can be used in devices other than smartphones as well including display consoles for automobiles, military devices, tablet PCs, and more. The image Samsung provided suggests the technology can be applied to flagship-size phone screens, but it didn't mention the resolution, brightness, or color-reproduction capabilities of the displays.

In a practical sense, however, this just doesn't tell us that much.

Samsung hasn't revealed when or which of its smartphones might in line for the display, but you can nearly guarantee that it will show up on a future Galaxy S10 Active.
