Samsung Discusses Curved Display Plans

Samsung Display has published more information about the flexible AMOLED display used on the Galaxy S6 Edge smartphone.

The Galaxy S6 Edge uses the third iteration of Samsung’s curved displays; the first was a horizontal curve on the Galaxy Round (Display Monitor Vol 21 No 39) and the second was the single-side curved AMOLED display on last year’s Galaxy Note Edge (Samsung Brings B2B to Consumer Show). Future versions will be bendable, foldable and – eventually – rollable.

Samsung uses a polyimide (plastic) substrate on the S6 Edge, which enables the curved design. A thin film – less than 1mm – had an electronic circuit deposited on top and a luminant RGB organic device placed through evaporation. The display, which is more flexible and thinner than a human hair, can have one or both sides curved.
