And no it’s not a flip phone.

Researchers at Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology have come up with nifty technology that will allow a smartphone or tab screen double over on an AMOLED display, without lines or creases.

The researchers at the South Korean labs have come up with the Active Matrix Organic Light Emitting Diodes (AMOLED) screen with two AMOLED panels topped with a protective cover glass to prevent scratches.

Hyperelastic materials and silicon are also used for protection.

The testing of the device has been described by expert engineers as ‘astonishing’ with scientists folding the device over and over – 100,000 times to be precise – but with very little sign of lines or creasing on the touch screen.

Following the extreme tests, it recorded just 6 per cent loss of brightness.

This latest innovation will be handy for the Galaxy makers as it looks to gain traction in the tabs war against the iPad.

 

Once fully developed the technology will be available to smartphones, tabs, and other mobile devices although one wonders if the latest breakthrough could be transferred on to larger screen devices. A foldable TV, anyone?
