In today's high-tech world, OLED technology is the buzz word. Samsung Electronics Vice- Chairman Kwon Oh-Hyun has revealed that the company is getting huge orders from electronics goods makers for its futuristic line-up of flexible organics light emitting diode (OLED) displays, according to Korea Times.
Besides, the flexible AMOLED displays will hit the market in the third quarter of 2012. "Samsung's Korean factories have orders to make no less than 960,000 flexible OLED panels this year, which is a pretty big number for a fledgling technology," claims PhoneArena.
The transition from LCD to OLED displays appears to be pioneering which could offer brighter and sharper pictures.
Recently, the company has dedicated a number of lines at its factory in Tangjeong, South Chungcheong Province, to produce flexible OLED displays, according to Korea Times.
"We will be mass producing flexible OLED displays from the latter half of this year as the demand from our clients is significant,'' said Kwon.
Samsung is not the only company to produce flexible OLED displays. According to OLED-Info, LG could be gearing up to produce unbreakable OLED displays. It is reported that company will produce OLED displays with a dimension of 730 x 460mm. LG has reportedly contracted Jusung Engineering and Avaco to deliver the equipment.
"LG Display's flexible OLEDs will use the same technology as Samsung's flexible prototypes - a polyimide coated substrate and direct-emission RGB sub-pixels," elaborates OLED-Info. Plastic could replace the glass cover making OLEDs thinner as well as stonger.
The OLED displays can be fabricated by using light-emitting organic materials, according to OLED-Info. Since the OLEDs are thin they can be embedded in materials which are flexible in nature.
