During the company’s keynote address today at CES in Las Vegas, company executives introduced Youm, which is designed to bring out better colors and contrast with a super thin form factor. It uses OLED display technology.
Brian Berkeley, the SVP of Samsung’s display lab in San Jose, California, held up a prototype of a phone that has one of these displays that’s bent around the side of the phone, so you can see updates on the side. The technology will give a new option to the company’s partners make bendable, rollable and foldable displays.Thus it will add new feather to the present existing smartphone and tablet features.
Samsung showed a concept video of just how flexible Youm displays could be. It started out with three actors in a coffee shop, one of whom folds up his high-tech wallet phone thing –imagine a tablet that folds like a bifold wallet. Another one breaks out a tablet that rolls out from something the size of a handheld voice recorder.
