Samsung may have displayed “the next big thing” in screens at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES):
Samsung today introduced new flexible OLED screens, showcasing a variety of possible products and uses.
In an address at International CES, Brian Berkeley, senior vice president of display, bent and wiggled a small, thin plastic screen. He showed a prototype device with a screen wrapping around the side and a message being delivered to the long side, instead of the top of the device. A video also introduced a possible future product that opened and closed like a book, with screens across both the inside and outside. Another product in the video showed a screen rolling out of a thin storage stick. “This new form factor will really begin to change how people interact with their devices, opening up new lifestyle possibilities … and allow our partners to create a whole new ecosystem of devices,” Berkeley said in a news release.
