Flexible Display Technology is FOLED (Flexible Organic Light Emitting Diode) which will be used in Samsung Flexible Mobile.
Flexible Organic Light Emitting Diode (FOLED):
Flexible Organic Light Emitting Diode is based on OLED technology in which we replace glass with flexible plastics. In regular OLED the OLED substrate is fabricated on glass surface that’s why we cannot bend it and another disadvantage is that pressure or stress cause damages of display. So in FOLED technology OLED substrates is fabricated on thin transparent flexible plastic material and by removing the class the new display can resist of pressure, stress, and even hammer force will not damage the display.
FOLED display is still expansive due to small scale production if the production is done in large scale price will decrease.
Future Phone besed on Flexible Display by Samsung:
