Samsung demonstrates new "unbreakable" OLED display panel



Samsung's display device earlier this week announced a new "unbreakable" OLED panel designed for smartphones, and a new video Samsung Display shared on YouTube demonstrates the display's durability.

In the video, the unbreakable OLED panel is exposed to a blow with what appears to be a plastic or rubber boat, and it can withstand several blows without harm.



Samsung's flexible plastic OLED panel is made of an unbreakable substrate that follows an overlay window, a deviation from other, more fragile, flexible OLED panels that use a glass-covered window.

The new OLED panel has been certified by Underwriters Laboratories, an official testing company for Occupational Safety and Health Administration from the US Department of Labor.

To earn the certification, the panel was passed 26 drops from 1

.2 meters without damage and kept up to extreme temperature testing. Samsung says the screen was also exposed to drops of six feet without signs of damage.

According to Samsung, the unbreakable panels are designed for use in smartphones, but can also be used in other products such as screen consoles for cars, mobile military devices, portable game consoles and tablet PCs.

"The fortified plastic window is especially suitable for portable electronic devices, not only because of its unbreakable properties, but also because of its ease, transmissiveness and hardness, all like glass," said Hojung Kim, general manager of the communications team, Samsung Display Company.

Samsung's first product to use the new unbreakable panel may be the upcoming Galaxy Note 9, which it is set to reveal on August 9th.

While Apple uses OLED monitors from Samsung in its iPhone setup, it's not clear if the Cupertino company plans to adopt this technology in the future.

Apple has so far chosen to use a Gorilla Glass cover for its monitors and has not ventured in plastic, but it's out of the possibilities if the display meets Apple's quality requirements.
