Samsung announced the intention to start the production of flexible displays on a massive scale

Flexible displays for mobile devices would most probably be an important area of production in the domain of mobile devices in future. Previously, the prototypes and patents for flexible displays have been seen by several tech giants but recently Samsung has announced the intention to start the production of flexible displays on a massive scale. The production of these displays would start in late 2012 and the devices showcasing these displays would be launched by Samsung in 2013. This new patent from Samsung has recently shown up that would give some very interesting form factors to smart phones and tablet devices.
 
The material with which these displays would be made is plastic instead of glass since plastic would be helpful in the bending, folding and rolling of the displays. This would make the smart phones to be rolled and put in pockets or other places where they can otherwise not be placed. The patent under discussion displayed a smart phone that was rolled in the form of a cylinder. Another advantage is that the devices would also be saved from any kind of damage in case they are dropped. The screens of the devices with flexible displays would particularly be prone to shock and crack. Shocks and bends would be absorbed by the flexible displays which would give durability to the product. Besides, since the displays would be made from plastic, the weight would also be considerably reduced. As per the patent, flexible displays that would be installed in the devices would be made from flexible plastic, metal foil, thin glass, or other thin and flexible material. Besides, these displays would be installed in a wide range of electronic products such as mobile phones, PDAs, MP3 players, computer displays, and notebook computers.
 
So soon we would be seeing another domain of competition and that is of devices with flexible displays. A tablet device with flexible display that can be rolled and put in the pocket would certainly be an amazing innovation. Other than the mobile phones, the patent also displayed some interesting flexible designs that would be implemented on the e-readers. This move from Samsung is quite original and unique and would push the boundaries of the mobile devices, starting a new era of flexible and more durable mobile devices. Samsung already enjoys a firm position in the market of the mobile devices and in near future, this position is expected to be improved.
