Samsung has recently given us all a brief insight into the world of tomorrow, discussing upcoming display technologies with the Wall Street Journal. A world it seems that will soon be built on plastic. With many properties that make it superior to glass; lighter, thinner, flexible and cheaper, plastic is the next inevitable step in display technology.
Samsung has been developing plastic display technology based on flexible plastic substrates for a number of years, as have many display manufacturers. On show at the moment are the latest OLED displays built on to plastic substrates. This technology will also be on show during the upcoming expo season starting with CES in Las Vegas, January 2013.
