Samsung has obtained another Patent for flexible display technology

Bendable and flexible screens have been quite the rage lately. The feasibility of this technology has been under discussion since three years and now the idea has become very much acceptable. In fact it feels weird that such technology has not been developed yet. Samsung has also collected many patents and proof of concepts on this technology too.

You might even remember the Project Valley this year which gained much fame with its work on flexible display. It is rumored that Samsung intends to introduce foldable smartphones this year and they will be in store the same year as well. Samsung display has been granted a patent for its foldable panel technology in much detail. Samsung Display has incorporated a flexible substance in one of the layers of the panel. The patent documentation mentions

• Polyethylene naphthalate (PEN)

• Polycarbonate (PC)

• Polyarylate (PAR)

• Polyether imide (PEI)

• Polyether sulfone (PES)

• Polyimide (PI)

These substances give us a grid which can manage structural integrity even when bent. This is also possible because of the di-electric elastomer film. This allows electric energy to transform into mechanical work when in strain. In simple words Samsung Display is developing a panel which can bend on its own without any external force. This means the old fold style flip phone will now be cooler and the patent will hopefully be part of reality next year.
