Samsung Display announced that its unbreakable smartphone panel has been certified Underwriters Laboratories (UL), the official testing company for the Occupational Safety and Health Administration of the U.S. Department of Labor. This display was first demonstrated at SID 2018.
This display is not aimed for just smartphones - SDC sees it being used in the automotive market, the defense market, portable game consoles and tablet PCs. The display is a flexible AMOLED on an "unbreakable" substrate with an overlay plastic window securely adhered to it.
UL certified that the unbreakable display developed passed the rigorous real-time durability test that is based on military standards set by the U.S. Department of Defense. The display sustained 26 drops from 1.2 meters, and continued to function normally with no damage to its front, sides or edges. The display also passed high (71 degrees) and low (-32 degrees) temperature tests and 1.8 meter drop tests.
