Samsung launches ‘unbreakable’ AMOLED plastic panels
Samsung are pulling up their sleeves with the research of the amazing plastic paneled AMOLED displays. It will take a good two years for these amazing displays to make it to the consumer market but it will happen for sure. There are plans to add a TFT on the plastic panel and to replace the existing vinyl protection sheet with a Polyimide Film. Whatever this means, what we have is an unbreakable plastic panel and trust me, with all the rugged devices coming out of the closet these days, such an AMOLED is an utmost necessity.
Samsung have taken it over the top with some of their greener innovations. I wonder if this one will act as a contradiction or maybe just another exception to the rule.
