Samsung Shows Off Flexible AMOLED Display

Over the last few days, Samsung has mainly been in the news for its latest addition to the Galaxy S family, the Samsung Continuum. However, while the Continuum wasn't exactly breathtaking in the excitement department, another AMOLED creation from Samsung has caught our attention.

At FPD International 2010 this week, Samsung demoed a 4.5-inch flexible AMOLED display. SlashGear reports Samsung's display is possible because the company has developed a manufacturing process that allows the plastic substrate to withstand the 350-400 degree temperatures involved when assembling the various AMOLED layers.

Thanks to this new process, not only does the display boast the same deep blacks and gorgeous, eye-popping colors we're used to seeing with AMOLED, but it packs a WVGA 800x480 resolution and can be rolled up to tight to achieve a diameter of 2cm.

As with all flexible displays, the fabulous demonstrations don't extend as far as specific products and release dates but Sammy says it's looking at tablets and smartphones for this display.
