Samsung to have flexible displays at CES 2013

Flexible screens are interesting for a number of reasons including the ability to have curved designs or possibly even folding smartphones and still have a large screen. The biggest benefit of the flexible smartphone screen is likely to be the ability to resist damage compared to a rigid screen that is prone to breaking when dropped.

CES 2013 kicks off in a few weeks and CNET reports that Samsung Display will be showing off a pair of flexible screens at the show that could appear in smartphone or TV designs.
One of the screens is a 5.5-inch flexible unit with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels (267 PPI). The other screen is a much larger 55-inch unit designed specifically for use in TV sets.
Designing a smartphone screen that can flex requires more than simply creating the main components of the screen. Researchers for Samsung Display also have to develop a touch panel and screen covering that are flexible as well.

Yep! Apple developed the flex display 15 years ago.

Samsung has been showing off copied pro-types for years.

Actually - taking a tact from Samsung's own court efforts - the makers of "Babylon AD" hold the "prior art" claim to flexible display tech. When Diesel opens the trunk of the car and unfolds a map equipped with multi-touch display tech, that seals the deal. Samsung is screwing the maker of the movie.

And going further back, the movie "Red Planet" also showed flexible display tech.

If Samsung and their sGoats can call "prior art" from "2001: A Space Odyssey" on Apple's iPad, this can be called on Samsung.

That was the height of ridiculousness when Samsung tried to use that movie as proof of prior art in
