p Samsung has yet another reason to celebrate.Its quad-edge flexible AMOLED display, used on the Galaxy S7 Edge, has received an award from the Society for Information Display (SID).This is a very important award in the industry that’s given to displays that incorporate the most significant technological advances as well as outstanding features.The Society for Information Display thinks that Samsung’s screen deserves the award for quite a few reasons.Among the things mentioned were an enhanced grip comfort that it enables because of its curved edges and its circuit plan, which minimizes the bezels around the screen.This isn’t the first award Samsung got from SID.
p Samsung Display is said to be preparing a first look at a stretchable display design at a US conference tomorrow.According to Yonhap News, Samsung will reveal a 9.1-inch stretchable organic LED panel during the Society for Information Display 2017 event which runs Tuesday through Thursday at the LA Convention Center.Stretchable displays are next evolution of the flexible display market, which includes curved and rollable displays, but it’s said to be the most advanced form.“While current flexible OLED is able to be transformed in only one side, this stretchable OLED can be transformed — whether curved, bended [sic] or rolled — in both sides, above and below,” a Samsung Display spokesperson told the Korea Herald.also reportedly told the Korea Herald that, when pressed, the display could move 12 millimeters in a direction and then settle when released — like a balloon.This could potentially lead to smartphones screens that are less likely to crack, but also ones that could be expanded or shrunk depending on the situation.
p Samsung Display on Monday (22 May) said it will showcase the world's first stretchable panel at a US tech fair taking place this week.The company is planning to showcase a 9.1in stretchable OLED display at the SID 2017 hosted by the Society for Information Display, which kicks off on Tuesday at the Los Angeles Convention Centre, reports Yonhap news agency.The company said the display can stretch up to 12mm when pressed while maintaining a high degree of resolution.It is expected to be used on devices that adopt Internet of Things or artificial intelligence technologies.The stretchable OLED display is unique as it can bend in both directions, when compared to previous flexible panels that could bend in one direction only, the company said.Industry watchers believe stretchable display has more complicated technology than other displays and can be considered the ultimate in flexible technology.
p It was set to be a revolutionary moment.Samsung was going to give us a glimpse at the future, its first-ever flexible display, a product that could bring about a whole new era in smart technology, where the screens don’t crack, but instead, bend and stretch when force is exerted upon them.A groundbreaking new technology, for use in IoT devices, smartwatches, smart cars, AI products and more…This is what we saw.As you might expect, the YouTube comments on the video haven’t been kind.“What is this crap!”, “WTF did I just watch??
Samsung aims to provide its customers with a VR headset solution that doesn't require a snap-in smartphone, and based on the latest report, it will have a better viewing area than the Galaxy S8 phone.The development of Samsung’s mobile virtual reality headset that will fall under the Odyssey brand is reportedly moving forward Unlike Samsung’s current Gear VR headset, it will be a self-contained unit that doesn’t rely on a snap-in smartphone.Instead, it will reportedly have a built-in, ultra-high-resolution display with a 2,000-pixels-per-inch (ppi) density, which is significantly sharper than what’s seen on the Samsung Galaxy S8 smartphone.The company introduced a display with a similar density during the Society for Information Display 2017 convention held in Los Angeles in May.It has a resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 and a massive pixel density of 2,250 pixels per inch.Joining this product was a stretchable OLED screen measuring 9.1 inches that could be “dented” up to 0.47 inches like a balloon, and then reverted back to its original shape.
Yesterday won the Apple ”Display of the Year Awards” which is awarded by the SID (The Society for Information Display) for their screens in the iPad Pro and iPhone X.the Prize is to highlight the companies doing innovative work in the display sector and all the allowances won in the year are products that came out last year.the iPad Pro to 10.5" and 12.9" which was released in June 2017, both won prizes for the ProMotion technology, which gives the devices a 120Hz refresh rate which makes everything flows better and feels more filling.the iPhone X won the award for its edge-to-edge Super Retina screen and the PAGE write:Super Retina display features a resolution of 458 ppi and is the first OLED panel to match the standard set by previous iPhone generation, delivering striking colors, true blacks, a million-to-one contrast ratio and superior, system-wide color management.The HDR display supports Dolby Vision and HDR10, which together serve to further heighten the image quality of photo and video content.
the Award, given out by The Society for Information Display, is awarded to highlight ”high-quality, innovative work that is happening in the skärmindustrin.” Ipad Pro in both sizes won the award for its Promotion technology that allows a high refresh rate of 120 Hz.It gives the ”smoother” cursor mode in the text, the faster moves in the game and better response with Apple Pencil.Even the Iphone X was praised for this year's display, and was called ”the first oled screen that matches the standard of previous Iphone models set”, with striking colours, really deep blacks and a superior handling of the colors.That the screen has hdr support, Dolby Vision as well as automatically adjusting the white balance (True tone) was estimated also by the organization.Among the other winners were also Sharp's 70-inch large 8k tv and Synaptics technology to embed a fingerprint sensor beneath the screen.
In recent years, LG has given us glimpses of prototypes of both transparent OLED displays and rollable OLED displays, but it was always in the context of technology we will see someday in the future.Now it seems the future is getting a little closer, as the company is showing off what it calls the world’s first 77-inch transparent flexible OLED display at the Society for Information Display (SID) conference in Los Angeles, and it shows that LG is making great strides with this type of technology.Combining its transparent and rollable OLED display technologies, especially in a display this size, shows that LG is making great progress.The panel itself is capable of the standard Ultra HD (UHD) resolution of 3840 × 2160 with 40 percent transparency and can be rolled up to a radius of 80mm without any negative effects on its functionality.At first, you might wonder how transparency could work in your living room, but looking at the Ambient mode in Samsung’s latest TVs shows how it could be useful, blending into your decor rather than sticking out like, well, a TV.“LG Display is proud to have a pioneering role in the 50-year history of LCD innovations by introducing world-first and world-best technologies such as IPS,” LG Display executive vice president and chief technology officer In-Byeong Kang said in a statement.
Display Week 2018 has been filled with ultra-high-res OLEDs, sound-emitting panels, and more, but the one company that really stuck out this year was E Ink.You might know its technology from products like the Amazon Kindle and the YotaPhone.The company has been using ultra low-power ink technology to create static images on displays, and had a number of new demos to showcase all the new products the technology is being injected into.Cutting Edge Hearing Aid You Probably Won't See on InfomercialsThe first set of displays showcased on the wall showed full-color E Ink which would switch images every minute or so.These images gave the impression they were drafted by something like a colored pencil, and looked much more “authentic” than a traditional display.
Display Week is here, and vendors are showcasing a ton of weird and incredibly niche display technologies for almost any use case.LG is showing off four different product demos at the show this year, each with a unique concept that may eventually make their way to your home, and maybe even your phone.Without further ado, here are the four different demos LG had to show off this year.The first display shown here was a 77-inch foldable OLED.This display is foldable as well, so there was a machine bending it back and forth in the corner.The colors on this display looked vibrant and rich, and this is something I’d love to have hanging in my home.
Inside the Xiaomi Mi8 is a Synaptics-made in-display fingerprint sensor, and today we’ve got the details.The technology at work here is Clear ID.That’s Synaptics’ own, coming here in the FS9500, inside the Xiaomi Mi8 Explorer Edition smartphone line.Technology included here was given the Society for Information Display (SID)’s Component of the Year award for 2018.Similar components were included in the vivo X20 Plus UD and X21 UD models – this one in the Xiaomi Mi8 Explorer Edition is the newest of the bunch.The differences between these models are slight.
The Apple Watch 4 marked the first time the company had increased the size of its smartwatch's screen since the original Apple Watch, and the company is now winning awards for that move.Apple's wearable just won "Display of the Year" at the Display Industry Awards, which was set up to celebrate innovation in the world of screen technology.The Society for Information Display decides the awards, and they called the screen the "defining feature of the Apple Watch".Our full best smartwatch rankingApple's ability to make the display on the smartwatch 30% bigger without increasing the size of the device itself was cited as one of the main reasons the company won the award.The judges who decided the winners also called the tech "striking", so it's likely just the screen technology itself was enough to impress.
Corning is currently attending Display Week in San Jose, CA.During the three-day event, the company is launching its newest product called Astra Glass, which will be geared towards high-performance tablets, notebooks, and televisions.One of Corning’s star products is Gorilla Glass which appears on many smartphones around the world.The sixth iteration of Gorilla Glass will continue to be the glass-of-choice for most 2019 flagships.Astra Glass is designed for devices larger than smartphones.It’s precisely engineered to enable the higher pixel density of high-performance displays to come through.
It sounds great, until you consider what such innovation will eventually cost when it trickles down to consumers.

This year has seen no shortage of rollable display demos from manufacturers, and now Samsung Display is the latest company to show off new concepts for folding and sliding screens. SamMobile spotted the concepts being showcased as part of a virtual Display Week exhibition (if you forgot to mail out your Happy Display Week cards, there’s still time since it runs through Friday) including a “multi-foldable” mobile display and a large 17-inch folding screen.
The company calls its first concept S-foldable, with a bi-fold design that opens up to a maximum screen size of 7.2 inches. It’s similar to the Galaxy Z Fold 2 except, well, plus one fold. There’s also a sliding mobile display similar to the ill-fated rollable concept LG showed off...
