Samsung made an announcement last Friday that the company plans to release flexible displays for smartphones early next year. Flexible screens for other portable devices, such as tablets, would follow sometime after. Samsung’s flexible displays use OLED (organic light emitting diode) technology, which doesn’t require backlight like LCD screens. Because of this, the self-illuminating diodes can be placed into thinner, bendable cases. Samsung showed of their rollable AMOLED display at CES 2011. The company says the upcoming flexible smartphone will hopefully follow the success of the company’s Galaxy S II, which has sold 10 million since release in May, 2011.
