Samsung's stretchable OLED display revealed

Last week, South Korean company Samsung unveiled a new type of display at Global Tech Korea 2021. It is an OLED panel that can be stretched, which creates new use cases for devices. In principle, manufacturers have shown prototypes of stretch screens before, but the fact that Samsung continues to demonstrate advances in this area implies that such displays may enter the mainstream consumer market in the future.

The world's largest smartphone maker even shared a video showing a stretching 13-inch OLED panel. As the source notes, such screen deformation can add another dimension to the display plane. How practical such screens will prove to be for consumer electronics is hard to say yet. The main thing is that it was not innovation for the sake of innovation itself - the developers came up with interesting use cases of technology that could make interaction with devices to a new level.
