- Samsung Display has revealed that it’ll develop rollable and sliding shows in 2021.
- The information comes after LG and Oppo each revealed rollable smartphone tech.
LG and Oppo have each teased or demonstrated smartphones with rollable shows in current months, but it surely seems like one other main participant may very well be getting into the market.
Samsung Display senior vice-president Kwon-Young Choi confirmed throughout an earnings name (h/t: The Elec) that it’ll “fortify our presence within the show market via progressive kind components reminiscent of rollable and sliding shows.”
The govt didn’t verify whether or not these screens would certainly be for smartphones, however Samsung filed a patent again in 2019 for a rollable telephone that resembles Oppo and LG’s efforts. See the render by LetsGoDigital in the primary picture above.
The Korean producer has additionally filed patents associated to telephones with sliding shows. More particularly, one patent filed in 2019 reveals a display that slides down and to the again of the machine, revealing a selfie digital camera and different sensors on the prime (test it out beneath). Another patent filed final 12 months reveals a telephone that’s extra like a Nokia N95, with the ability to slide up or down and that includes a rear display too.
There’s no assure that Samsung itself will launch rollable or sliding telephones, as its Samsung Display arm might theoretically be creating the tech for different producers as nicely.
