Foldable OLED displays are very exciting and Samsung knows how to keep the excitement going. Along the way, the South Korean tech company announced the world’s first 1.4R foldable OLED panel that offers the smallest curvature ever for a commercial foldable device. The innovation has been applied to the recently released Galaxy Z Fold2 5G smartphone.
According to Samsung, this is the company’s third foldable OLED display with a resolution of 2208 x 1768 pixels and a screen diagonal of 7.6 inches. It uses ultra-thin glass for a sleeker look and product excellence and is the first 1.4R curved display on a phone.
The advantage of a smaller bend radius is that it can bend more tightly along the fold, leaving as little space as possible between the two screens when closed. In addition to aesthetics, this smaller empty space means that fewer foreign objects are entering through to cause damage.
The new OLED panel has been certified for 200,000 times. Considering the amount of time we spend on our phones, not just for folding and unfolding – but generally for use, Samsung has taken this into account and received Eye Care Display certification for its panel, for a reduction in the emission of blue light that causes eye stress. The screen claims to offer 6.5% blue light emission, which is the lowest for any screen on a smartphone.
