Samsung Super Thin AMOLED Display Makes Us Look Forward to a Screen-Filled Future

by Lambert Varias

At CES 2011, Samsung showed off a prototype of a media player that made use of an AMOLED display that’s only 0.3mm thick:

That’s almost as thin as a single hair strand. As you can see, the display is not just thin, it’s very flexible too. According to Dvice, a Samsung representative told them that you could even roll this display to a cylinder with a radius of just 1cm (0.4 inches), although the rep refused to actually roll it up. Better safe than sorry.

Can you imagine the applications of such a display? We’ll have portable gadgets that fold into even smaller sizes, more wearable gadgets with displays, ultra lightweight TVs – hell, we could use it as a wallpaper or cover our desks with it.

I wonder how long it’ll take before AMOLED finally becomes mainstream. Check out Dvice for a couple more shots of another AMOLED screen on a smaller media player prototype.
