Future Samsung AMOLED Displays: Flexible and Impact Resistant

By Jamie Pert - Jul 21, 2010

If you have ever cracked or shattered your smartphone’s display you will know how frustrating it can be, however this could be a thing of the past thanks to Samsung’s future flexible and “unbreakable” AMOLED displays.

If you scroll down to the end of this post you can see a video showing off how rugged these displays are, especially when compared to existing AMOLED’s. In the video both displays are hit with a hammer, the existing AMOLED display shatters instantly, however the future AMOLED display remains undamaged.

Also in the video the display’s flexibility is shown off, whilst the the future AMOLED is displaying video output it is pretty much folded in half, this has no effect on the display and it continues outputting video perfectly.

It is thought that these new AMOLED displays will begin shipping with new devices in around two years, there is no doubt that this technology will make broken screens a thing of the past.

Check out the video below and let us know your thoughts. Will all smartphones use this technology by 2012?
