Samsung has developed the world's first unbreakable OLED display, which survived 26 consecutive drops. When will it appear on smartphones and other electronic devices, though? (1
Samsung's collapsible smartphone feeder is getting better today – the company has apparently tested an unbreakable OLED display by applying it with all kind of damage, but the phone was still unscathed.  Flexible OLED panels have been around for many years, although their implementations have been limited. Businesses usually put the flexible panel behind a protective glass, but Samsung's unbreakable OLED display completely renews it. The panel has already attached a plastic cover to mimic the glass properties, but keeps the screen's flexibility – and because the display does not need a protective glass plate, it has proven to be robust enough to receive UL certification for its clean durability.
How Samsung Made an Ubreakable OLED Screen
"The enhanced plastic window is especially suitable for portable electronic devices, not only because of its unbreakable properties, but also because of its ease, transmissivity and hardness, all of which look like glass, says Hojung Kim from Samsung Display.
According to Samsung, this unbreakable OLED screen was able to withstand UL's military standard tests involving dropping the device 26 times in a row from a height of 1.2 meters or about 4 meters . It also survived temperatures as high as 71 degrees Celsius and as low as -32 degrees Celsius. The panel "continued to function normally without damage to the front, sides or edges," Samsung said, and the company again took the phone by dropping the phone from 1.8 meters or about 6 meters.
Obviously, the company could one day incorporate this display into its smartphones and probably sell it to others as well, including smartphone companies like all ede buys monitors from, for example, Apple, who buy Samsung OLED panels for iPhone X. But it can also be used in other devices, including game consoles, tablets, car monitors and other electronics that are often subject to damage.
When will Samsung roll out the unbreakable OLED screen?
Samsung did not say when this screen will roll out to the market and when it plans to mass-produce the component. Although this is definitely good news for manufacturers because they once come to the market, they will be able to experiment with multiple screenless screen designs and make sure the screen will not break.
For consumers, it means less money spent on screen repairs. Then again, do not get the hope for you – there's a possibility for Samsung chucker the whole thing in the drawer if it finds some inherent problems with the display's construction. So be careful optimistic.
