Samsung's bendable cell phone screen
« on: January 14, 2011, 07:49:55 am »

LAS VEGAS--"Flexible" isn't something you'd think you needed in a cell phone screen, but CES is all about concepts and future applications in addition to big-name product releases.

That's why we were excited to see prototypes of two Samsung displays. One is a malleable screen you can actually bend in a wave or arc. The 4.5-inch screen has an impressive WVGA (800x480 pixel) resolution that you can curve. It's also paper-thin, less than 0.3mm thick.

We may have been a bit drastic with our photo shoot (see image above,) but there is a case for curved screens on devices. Samsung is claiming that this iteration of the flexible AMOLED screen has a resolution four times clearer than its previous bendable model. It can withstand up to 400-450 degrees during manufacturing, 50-100 degrees past previous screens' typical melting point.
