Samsung: Unbreakable AMOLED Display In Development

AMOLED display technology may be taking another great leap forward, thanks to our friends at Samsung. Super AMOLED is about to give way to the next wave in Awesome; unbreakable AMOLED displays. By using a plastic display instead of a brittle glass one, Samy will be able to make their screens much tougher.

They plan to stick a thin film transistor on a plastic panel and replace the standard vinyl protection sheet with a thin polymide film. This will allow for thinner screens that are almost impossible to crack or shatter. Plastic is much easier to scratch than glass though. It's worth wondering how Samsung will make this display pocket-safe. They aren't due to hit for another two years-ish, so there's plenty of time to work that out.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
