Samsung Display demonstrates a 13-inch stretchable AMOLED display

Samsung Display has demonstrated a new stretchable AMOLED display. The 13-inch panel (we do not know the resolution) was shown in a unique 3D demo.

The idea behind the demo is that the panel reacts to the video content (flowing lava), so it changes the height of parts of the screens to make the experience more realistic, a sort of volumetric display.

Back in 2017, Samsung demonstrated its first stretchable OLED, a 9.1" panel. The company is progressing with its R&D in this direction - SDC says that in 2017 the "degree of stretchability" was around 5%, but it has improved significantly. Earlier this year researchers from Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology (SAIT) developed a new stretchable OLED display that proves the commercialization potential of stretchable devices.

Last year LG Display announced that it has been selected by the Korean Government to lead a national large-scale project to develop stretchable displays.
