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
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.

Yeah because you think Samsung invented OLED and flexible displays.
Wrong on both counts. Still, don't let that stop you, it never has before.

Ford didn't invent cars either. They just made them awesome.

Ford made cars affordable. They never made them awesome.
