Message Text: Samsung Mobile Display (SMD) will be demonstrating next generation AMOLED displays at a press event during the Consumer Electronics Show.

AMOLED (Active Matrix Organic Light Emitting Diode) displays can go far beyond LCD and plasma with distinct advantages such as vivid color, widest viewing angles, low power consumption, high contrast and extremely fast response times.

SMD will be presenting a prototype of an advanced flexible AMOLED display. Only 2mm thick, the 4.5 inch flexible AMOLED runs at a WVGA 800 x 480 resolution and can be rolled down to a one centimeter radius.

At WVGA, this new concept prototype offers a display resolution four times that of the previous most flexible AMOLED prototype in the industry, thanks to the use of a new plastic substrate that can withstand the 450-500 degree temperatures required in the manufacturing process.

Typically, flexible displays use plastic substrates instead of glass substrates because this helps the display become lighter and thinner. Furthermore, the new plastic substrates are not prone to breakage during manufacturing. Previously, plastic materials melted at temperatures over 400 degrees during the manufacturing process, making commercialization difficult.

Development of the 4.5 inch Flexible AMOLED prototype, designed for smart phone and tablet PC displays, is a major step on the road to mass production.

SMD will be also showing a large transparent AMOLED Display prototype, designed for use in applications from PC monitors to TVs.

Whether the prototype AMOLED display is turned off or on, it maintains up to a 30% transparency. The average amount of transparency elsewhere has been below 10 percent, the company says.

SMD's transparent AMOLED prototype provides the highest resolution on a transparent large screen TV (over 19 inches) or monitor display.

Uses may include searching the Internet while watching TV, or watching TV on windows, including car windows for backseat passengers.

SMD will also be exhibiting a 14-inch qFHD transparent AMOLED for notebook PCs.

Samsung Mobile Display Co., Ltd (SMD) is a joint venture between Samsung Electronics and Samsung SDI.
