Samsung Unveils ‘Unbreakable’ OLED Smartphone Display Panel

Samsung announces new 'unbreakable' display that survives punishing UL certification

Samsung made this panel for smartphones, but the company said it might also find use for it in other devices, from tablets and portable game consoles, to military devices and vehicle display consoles. The manufacturer says the screens also subsequently survived a drop from 6' (1.8 m) and kept on ticking.

The flexible panel boasts an unbreakable substrate and an overlay window securely adhered to it, Samsung boasts, which makes the screen much tougher than traditional OLED panels that have glass placed on top.

Instead of using glass, Samsung is actually attaching a hardened plastic that remains flexible.

Samsung's bold claim was verified by Underwriter Laboratories (UL), an official testing partner for the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

Until Samsung presents a working product to market, we will not know some of the important characteristics of their unbreakable displays.

Samsung announced on Thursday that it has created an "unbreakable" smartphone display. We suspect that means it should be able to survive everyday use-and potentially the many at-home drop tests people will inevitably perform. It was drop tested from 1.2 meters 26 times in succession in accompanying high and low temperature tests. The panel continued to function normally “with no damage to its front, sides or edges.”. UL also dropped the display from 6 feet above ground, which is significantly higher than the U.S. military standard, and it survived that as well. At the same time, Samsung has managed to produce a plastic cover with a weight, transmissivity, and hardness "very similar to glass".

Samsung Display, meanwhile, isn't just thinking about the display for smartphone purposes. However, we might see them in Galaxy S10 range which will be unveiled early next year and is expected to come with a lot of upgrades. Not only will this display be important for smartphones, but the firm also anticipates that there will be a need for this kind of technology with displays found in vehicles, military devices, portable gaming consoles, and more.
