Samsung Display Reveals Details Behind Galaxy S6 Edge’s Flexible Display
Samsung has an obsession with experimentation of displays. And it keeps on increasing as Samsung Display has revealed details about their latest and most advanced display, featured on the Galaxy S6 Edge.
The AMOLED display is the third flexible rendition debuted by the company, which provides extremely bright and colorful images with 3.6 million pixels.
The display uses polyimide (PI), a form of plastic, as the building material instead of rigid glass traditionally used in AMOLED panels. Using PI, Samsung has created a phenomenal film thinner than a human hair and has been able to deposit an electronic circuit onto it. Thus, the flexible display can be used in single-edge designs or “dual-faceted” designs like that in the Galaxy S6 Edge with a curvature of 6.5R for each side.
Contrary to the belief that the high-res display results in more power usage, Samsung’s flexible display actually helps reduce power consumption by 20 percent as its pixel control technology only allows the device to use 7mm of each column at any one time.
Samsung’s flexible display endorses the industry’s highest color reproduction rate, with a color gamut that perfectly supports the Adobe RBG color scale. The display is packed with a Quad HD 1440 x 2560 pixel resolution (557 pixels per inch) which is currently the highest resolution available for any smartphone.
To make you believe the strength of this extraordinarily delicate display, videos were recently released which showed how the Galaxy S6 Edge could be used to crack walnuts without getting damaged.
