Today, via a brief press blast, Samsung Mobile Display announced its big intentions for this year’s Consumer Electronics Show. Sammy’s mobile display unit hopes to make a splash with two, very distinctive products: a 4.5-inch WVGA flexible AMOLED display and a 19-inch qFHD transparent AMOLED display. As Samsung explains:
SMD is presenting a prototype of the most advanced flexible AMOLED display. Only 2mm thick, the 4.5 inch flexible AMOLED runs at a WVGA 800 x 480 resolution and can be rolled down to a one centimeter radius.
At WVGA, this new concept prototype offers a display resolution four times that of the previous most flexible AMOLED prototype in the industry, thanks to the use of a new plastic substrate that can withstand the 450-500 degree temperatures required in the manufacturing process.
SMD is showing the world’s first large transparent AMOLED Display prototype, designed for use in applications from PC monitors to TVs.
Whether the prototype AMOLED display is turned off or on, it maintains up to a 30% transparency. The average amount of transparency elsewhere has been below 10 percent.
SMD’s transparent AMOLED prototype provides the highest resolution on a transparent large screen TV (over 19 inches) or monitor display.
Look for more information about the two displays next week on January 5th.
