On October 9th, Samsung launched the world’s first device with a flexible OLED display, the Galaxy Round smartphone – with it’s curved 5.7″ Full-HD flexible Super AMOLED. Strangely Samsung does not refer to this display as a YOUM display , which is the brand name for plastic-based OLEDs they launched at CES 2013 . In their PR, Samsung also never mentioned that this display is “unbreakable” – which is one of the biggest advantages of plastic-based OLEDs. Samsung’s design is also much less exciting that the design prototypes they unveiled at CES that used a YOUM display . A couple of weeks ago I thought that perhaps this display uses a glass substrate and not a plastic one, which will explain everything. I checked with my sources and they said that it is using plastic and this is a YOUM display. Read more about Samsung's Galaxy Round – does it really use a plastic-based flexible OLED?

Samsung Galaxy Round Smartphone with curved Super-AMOLED – 5.7 inch flexible Super-Amoled with Full HD
5.7 inch flexible Super-Amoled with Full HD Samsung introduce the Galaxy-ROUND which is the world first smartphone with a 5.7 inch flexible/curved Super-Amoled with Full HD resolution. Samsung introduced also the “ROLL EFFECT” that enables user to check information such as date, time, missed call and battery easily when home screen is off, and the Gravity Effect for creating visual interaction with the screen by tilting the device. For music, the Bounce UX enables users to control their music. When the GALAXY ROUND’s display is off while the music player is running, a short press to the left of the device will play the previous track while a short press to the right will play the next track. For pictures and videos, the Side Mirror feature enables users to gain access to list of the album content with a left and right tilt. The large screen size of the GALAXY ROUND provides additional benefits to users. Useful One-Hand Operation features bring a user’s most desired controls closer to a preferred side of the screen. The device enables enhanced multitasking capabilities that allow users to fully utilize the larger screen through Multi Window, a feature that enables users to open more than one application on the screen, run simultaneous multiple instances of the same application or to easily share content between applications. Samsung plans to introduce the GALAXY ROUND in luxury Brown and more colours in Korea soon.

OLED Encapsulation is a very hot topic, especially for flexible OLEDs . Samsung and LG are already producing flexible OLED s, but the search for better encapsulation technologies is still on. ALD, or Atomic Layer Deposition is one candidate for future deposition of OLED encapsulation. ALD is based on Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) that uses two vaports or gaseous precursors which react on the substrate which creates a solid thin film. ALD works in relatively low temperatures which means it is suitable for all substrates including plastics. One of the leaders in ALD is Finland’s Beneq . Beneq developed an inorganic barrier film called nClear which is deposited using ALD. Beneq says that nClear provides “world class” barrier performance and can be deposited at temperatures well below 100 degrees Celsius. ALD offers the TFS-600 (Gen-2.5, 500×400 mm) which is used for industrial-scale OLED encapsulation. Beneq’s director of Technical sales, Mikko Soderlund, was kind enough to answer a few questions we had on the company’s technology and business.
DisplaySearch posted an interesting article regarding Apple and how they plant o once again rely on display technology for the new product innovation. DisplaySearch estimates (based on supply chain research) that Apple will revamp nearly all of the displays in its products in 2014. Specifically, DisplaySearch estimates that the iWatch will indeed adopt a flexible OLED . Apple 2011 flexible OLED watch patent Specially, DisplaySearch says that the iWatch will use a 320×320 flexible AMOLED and the size of the display will be either 1.3″ or 1.63″. We heard reports last week from Korea suggesting pretty much the same specs . Last week I reported that I can’t see either LGD or Samsung being able to supply Apple with the flexible displays. But DisplaySearch estimates that the iWatch will only arrives towards the end of 2014, so it may be that LGD (or Samsung ) will indeed have the capacity to supply Apple by then.

Samsung Display now mass producing 5.7" flexible OLED, will release the first flexible OLED phone next week
Just minutes after posting that L GD announced it will start mass producing flexible OLEDs , here comes Samsung with their own announcement. It turns our that Samsung Display is already mass producing 5.7″ flexible OLEDs and supplying them to Samsung Electronics. Samsung will release the first flexible OLED phone (probably a Galaxy Note 3 Special-Edition ) “within days”. Samsung’s 5.7″ panel offers Full-HD resolution and it is only 0.12 mm thin. It weighs 5.2 grams and has a curvature radius is 400 mm. So while LG’s flexible display is larger at 6″, it is much thicker (more than three times thicker at 0.44 mm).

Several reports from Korea suggests that LG Electronics is getting ready to announce their first phone that uses a flexible plastic-based curved OLED panel. Both reports say the new phone will sport a large 6″ panel and it will be announced soon – within days or in November at the latest. One thing the two sources do not agree upon is the name. CNet says it will be called the G Flex while ZDnet Korea claims it will be called the LG G Z or Z1. CNet says that they obtained the sketch shown above the shows how the new phone will look like.

Samsung launched the Galaxy Note 3 earlier this month , with a 5.7″ Full-HD Super AMOLED display (386 PPI). Before this launched we heard many reports that the Note 3 will be the first phone to sport a plastic-based unbreakable flexible YOUM display . Some of these reports came from credited sources such as the OLED Association . One of the more interesting reports suggested that Samsung is actually preparing several Note 3 variants, each with a different display. A regular AMOLED will be the most popular one, but Samsung may use an LCD in some variants (this is probably because AMOLED supply may be very tight ).
