Samsung’s flexible display has been delayed


Last updated: July 23rd, 2013 at 17:26 UTC+02:00

The first flexible display devices from Samsung has been delayed. According to Korean newspaper ETnews Samsung is having issues with the display quality. Samsung expected to bring the first flexible display smartphones on the market from end 2013. Since OLEDs are vulnerable to moisture and oxygen, encapsulation processes are crucial to the commercialization of flexible displays.
Samsung Display is reportedly reviewing various encapsulation technologies that can replace the encapsulation technology developed by Vitex System.


This could be bad news for Samsung. Korian giant LG told the press to come faster with flexible smartphone devices than Samsung. LG earlier received from the government money to develop new screen technology to stimulate the technology.

Samsung said:

As we have accumulated expertise in this field, progress is being made in substrates as well as encapsulation technology. We have developed a new technology than can shorten the encapsulation process to less than 2 minutes by using the Vitex System-developed encapsulation technology.
