CES 2013: Samsung shows off new flexible display technology.

Samsung’s aiming to make smartphone tech a
little less rigid with the introduction of new,
flexible screens that can be used in smartphones
and tablets to make them more resilient.
In the keynote presentation at the tConsumer
Electronics Show, Samsung device head Stephen
Woo and lab lead Brian Berkeley showed off
bendable, rollable, foldable displays with several
concept devices. The flexible screens, which
Samsung has branded as Youm, are designed to
have displays as rich and crisp as current
smartphones, but with more options for form
factors.
In one example, CNET noted, the screen bends
around the edge of the device to display
information on the side of it, similar to the
information on the side of a book. More broadly,
flexible screen technology could help improve the
resilience of consumer technology devices and
make them even more portable.

The company also showed off a number of
hardware components and processors that will let
its devices run faster and more powerfully, while
also consuming less energy than current devices.
The company’s presentation was light on details
about when any of the tech would actually appear
in consumer devices.
Samsung has been focused on shaking up the way
that consumers look at their screens by playing
with different form factors. The company also
introduced an OLED television with a curved
display, meant to give the set a more natural
appearance.
Wednesday’s keynote also featured a few words
from former president Bill Clinton, who has
worked with the company’s charity efforts in the
past. Clinton spoke about ways mobile technology
can help address problems in the developing
world.
Clinton also spoke briefly about the need for gun
control in the United States as well as solutions
for global climate and political problems, saying
that technology can help break down barriers
people construct to avoid “people who don’t agree
with us,” Engadget reported. Deploying
communication and processing technology — and
making it available to more of the world — he
said, can help bridge gaps.
