Could be Samsung secretly working on Samsung Z Rollable?
Besides the new design approaches, Samsung Display also has other possible applications that will bring innovation to the market. According to Samsung Display’s senior vice president, Choi Kwon-young spoke after the company published its financial report and said that its first rollable and slidable displays are coming this year. This certainly is very exciting news. After the possible demise of LG Rollable, the hopes for a smartphone with this kind of display now rest on Samsungs hands. However, the work done by Samsung Display does not necessarily mean that the smartphone division will already use it on a smartphone.
Samsung Mobile may be the first to adopt this new technology. But this is yet to be confirmed, after all, the company also has other electronics that can benefit like its smart TVs. LG unveiled a rollable smart TV last year, and despite the crazily expensive price, it can start a new trend.
While a new smartphone does not come, the brand may adopt some of these technologies on future foldable handsets. For now, the brand will rely on variable refresh rate and low power consumption to push its OLED displays forward. Recently, the brand unveiled a new OLED panel for laptops that will consume less power. As far as the smartphone business is concerned, we believe that the company will keep pushing its foldable smartphone segment. After all, the brand has the potential to further establish its domain before other companies.
For this year, the company is expected to produce over 11 million flexible displays to feed this market segment.
