Samsung Display has today unveiled a new foldable OLED panel which is reported to have the world’s smaller curvature for a commercial device. The Korean giant also claimed that the recently announced Galaxy Z Fold2 5G is the first to use it.
Samsung says that Ultra-Thin Glass (UTG) on the display helps in delivering a higher level of product excellence. This is the company’s third foldable OLED panel and comes with support for 2208 x 768 pixels screen resolution on a 7.6-inch display.
As mentioned above, the tech firm is the first in the world to apply a 1.4R curved display on a smartphone. The small curvature helps in enhancing the user experience as it allows the lowest verified level of blue light emissions along with improving usability.
The company added that to minimize folding stress, Samsung Display has optimized several technologies related to the material of the display, the panel design, and the module assembly, so that the multi-layered structure can function as a cushion when the display panel is folded.
Samsung further stated that the panel has passed a folding test of 200,000 folds and has received an “Eye Care Display” certification. The new display has achieved an improved emission level for blue light of only 6.5% for comfortable long-time viewing on screen.
